With the improved uptake of Building Information Modelling (BIM) new issues are emerging. Prime in these tasks is how it is presented to the various stakeholders, in tailor made views to reflect their demands and requirements. In this fragmented sector strong in the concept of phased handovers new methods of feedback loops need to be developed, and other(More)
Better informed design then allows for a reduction in the use of global resources, to facilitate better siting, geometry, daylighting, function and system implementation in facilities. It allows better optimisation in components and installations placed in those buildings and, in best cases, it makes it possible to generate excess energy to fulfil local(More)
