This paper examines the incorporation of carbon data into the Building Information Model (BIM) process and considers option appraisals that will enable design team members to evaluate both operational and embodied CO2 emissions over the life cycle of a project. The paper is based upon work, funded by the Technology Strategy Board, to develop a toolkit that utilises interoperable standards around a BIM. This allows for architects, energy advisors and others to develop and share design… CONTINUE READING
