The submitted description of the workshop is a follows:

This master class covers workflows required for the effective and efficient use of building information models (BIM) for detailed performance analysis. It considers the kinds of model information required for different types of analysis as well as appropriate methods for exporting that information to a range of simulation and analysis tools. Participants will carry out a series of analytical studies including overshadowing, solar radiation, daylight, thermal performance and air-flow simulations.

The master class focuses mainly on workflows between Autodesk Revit Architecture, Revit MEP, Ecotect Analysis, Green Building Studio, 3DS Max Design and other simulation tools. Trial copies of Autodesk Revit Architecture, 3DS Max Design and Ecotect Analysis will be available on the day for those without this software on their laptops.


Participants must bring own laptop with Microsoft Windows XP or Vista operating systems. If you choose to pre-load your laptop with some of the Autodesk trial software, please do not do so more that 30 days before the workshop or your trial period will run out. CDs with the required training material will be available on the day.
