Building Information Modeling for Energy Analysis
A simplified information modeling workflow to interoperate with energy modeling applications
This introductory course will provide you with an outlook on the landscape of information technology gaps between Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Building Energy Modeling (BEM) while interfacing with Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
The Trailloop educational program developed a roadmap to bridge the information divide using a data exchange framework. The information modeling workflow provides a robust integration to overcome data translation pitfalls and explores interoperability scenarios between applications.
Jean Carrière works with designers to implement a workflow for dynamic building performance modelling and energy simulation. As an entrepreneur, he pioneered a framework for exchanging building information modelling data with energy modeling applications. He has taught the building modelling workflow in post-secondary institutions, industry workshops, and international conferences.
He is the Founder and CEO of Trailloop, a Certified Engineering Technologist, and a technical advisory board member for buildingSMART Canada. His background is in architectural technology and building science with focus on passive buildings. He is driven by a purpose to accelerate the transition to a sustainable built-environment.
