Abstract

Better informed design then allows for a reduction in the use of global resources, to facilitate better siting, geometry, daylighting, function and system implementation in facilities. It allows better optimisation in components and installations placed in those buildings and, in best cases, it makes it possible to generate excess energy to fulfil local needs or even produce a profit. However, and due to the fragmentation, the construction industry is only responding slowly. Indeed, clients and contractors are beginning to have an increasing influence. Trust and worthwhile collaboration can be engendered through the visual aspects of modelling and the communicative benefits accruing.
