Abstract

The application of green building concepts to residential buildings is a viable solution to mitigating these crises and applying building information modelling (BIM) to prevent risks and delays during construction. The project investigates the potential energy savings that can be achieved by converting a conventional villa into a green villa. The villas in question were modelled in Autodesk Revit™, given the appropriate properties, and were analysed using the inbuilt energy analysis tools. The application of BIM further reduces delays and design mistakes and reduces losses due to such conflicts. The factors considered are internal environment quality and energy consumption, along with other relevant parameters. The analyses showed a significant reduction in energy consumption and scored a significantly higher score as per IGBC ratings. The use of BIM ensures efficient management of the data collected. The use of energy analysis tools and BIM in the vein of large projects will ensure that every kind of construction prioritizes the environment as well as saving energy during service. It will go a long way in mitigating the power crises.
