We are in a climate emergency, and urgently need to reduce our footprints. The architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry is the biggest violator of sustainable practices, accounting for 45% of all energy consumption and 75% of US electrical consumption. We in the AEC industry have the largest room for impact, because informed BIM (Building Information Modeling) designers can shape a better world! We will look into sustainable design practices and how to help your firm create and design better buildings by equipping your teams with the knowledge to improve efficiency from the early design phase throughout the lifecycle of the building and the whole process, utilizing BIM workflows. We will discuss the issues and why immediate action is required in the way we design to help combat the global crisis. BIM for sustainability is not only good for our planet; it is also good for business, the economy, and society as a whole. Let's do our part for a better future and integrate sustainable practices into daily workflows.
