Building Information Modelling (BIM) is rapidly becoming the industry standard in building design globally. The UK government has announced that all centrally procured constructions projects need to use BIM by 2016 and expect this to reduce capital cost and the carbon burden from the construction and operation of the built environment by 20%. In Taiwan, the Head of the Construction and Planning Agency (CPA) announce that Taiwan government will support BIM development in public policy.
Architype are leaders in the the field of Sustainable / Green Architecture and are earlier adopters of BIM in their green design processes, particularly with regard to delivering radical reductions in energy consumption & carbon emissions.
Elrond Burrell, Associate at Architype, was invited to present a UK perspective on Green BIM at the National Taiwan University in Taipei on 13 February 2014. The BIM meeting was hosted by Prof. Shang-Hsien (Patrick) Hsieh and held in the Civil Engineering Research Building
