Ottawa, Canada, March 13, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Trailloop, an energy efficiency building design online learning academy, launches BIM-Integrated Energy Modeling Online Course. This course allows engineers and architects to optimize building energy early where there is the greatest impact, and see those results through the design process for the most energy efficient building design. It’s the most time-efficient building design workflow for early-stage and iterative energy analysis, using a streamlined BIM process.
This BIM Integrated energy modeling workflow is the most efficient because it manages the building model’s information in a way that continuously adds value and streamlines the information process. The workflow allows you to perform early stage and iterative energy simulations with a LEED compliant energy modeling tool, which saves you time by avoiding the rework that would otherwise be necessary from transitioning to this software.
Trailloop’s streamlined BIM process reduces errors and ensures consistency between what is modeled and what gets put in. BIM can exchange data through Green Building XML with energy modeling software. This enables the modeled features to generate energy input data. The software can then be used to identify areas of energy use, opportunities for reduction and an easy comparison between different design options.
Learners will be able to construct building geometries in Revit for a seamless integration into IES VE for energy modeling, perform design changes and re-integrate them back into the energy model. This workflow allows you to leverage the best of both applications in a shared BIM environment.
Learners gain instant access to a robust learning management system filled with multi-media learning content. This self-paced online course contains 4 hours of interactive video tutorials, downloadable project files, and 25 quiz questions. If learners decide to build their own project while taking the course, they will be able to submit their project files during the planning, integration, and post-production stages for our instructor to provide you with personalized feedback. Learners can achieve 8 hours of Continuing Education with the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) through our certificate of completion.
This fully interactive step-by-step online course is going to be debuting in various college programs in Canada this year, and the involvement continues to grow this early on.
About the instructor: Jean Carriere is a building performance technologist for Trailloop with extensive experience using building information modeling with building simulation applications as a consultant. He has taught BIM at Algonquin College, and has taught BIM-integrated energy modeling workshops at George Brown College. Jean has spoken at conferences throughout North America about his BIM integrated energy modeling workflow and bi-directional data exchange. https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeancarriere1
Jean Carriere: “This course will help you plan your energy analysis feedback to your team during each phase, while reporting on the performance of your project goals. You’ll be able to capture the positive gains of these building features and prepare accurate building loads in order to right size the systems through the design development phases.”
Whether you’re the architect who is interested in getting involved with energy simulation, or the engineer who is looking to start building energy models the fast and efficient way using BIM, either way your transition between early stage schematic analysis will be seamless through to design development phases, constantly adding value throughout the process up until the LEED compliance.
The BIM workflow is a constant evolution of data, using Revit as a shared BIM environment and IES VE an energy simulation tool. By using this workflow, you’re only going to need two of the best software tools, and learn how to use them together to harness even more value out of them.
The next step is to exchange information bi-directionally between these tools, which has been proven a huge success, you can refer to our recorded webinar on Youtube for more on how this step builds upon the seamless integration, which you can now learn using our online course. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vKG7LOPjB4&feature=youtu.be&a
