BuildingDesignExpert Podcast – BIM and Passivhaus 2

BDE Podcast logo

Passivhaus has been around for so long now, it can pretty much take care of itself – in suitably trained hands that is. However, BIM, we discover, is a process that can add value to any design mode. So yes Passivhaus can and does benefit, but not in any unusual way, after all it is just a methodology of construction, with a core ethos of super high quality internal environment and energy efficiency, requiring the construction team to go that extra mile to deliver.

Building Information Modelling seeks a cleaner, transparent and supremely sequenced design development for any building project. Put the two together and you have a composite that guarantees what it says on the tin.

In the concluding part of our interview with Elrond Burrell, we discover just that really. That Passivhaus can and does take care of itself, and the conversation takes the BIM track for the most part. But then comes nicely back together in time for the end. Intrigued?
