How can designers get the most value out of energy models?
That’s the question KE mechanical engineer Brendan Hall addressed at this year’s ASHRAE/IBPSA-USA Building Simulation Conference, “BIM to BEM.”
Brendan’s presentation, “Integrating Building Simulation and the Design Process,” looked at how the KE team has used available software throughout design and what issues they have encountered along the way. He was part of a panel addressing issues that design firms face. Brendan talked about:
Brendan also walked through a workflow for a 340,000-SF high school project KE completed, showing how project information traveled through different models and software programs (see below).
The presentation was developed in collaboration with KE BIM manager Emy McGann, principal Dennis Wessel, and mechanical project engineer Ben Arnett.
