The Advantages of BIM for Government Building Performance Analysis White Paper
Buildings account for nearly half of all energy consumption and annual greenhouse emissions in the United States. Because of the vast inventory of buildings within their control, federal, state, and local government agencies have an unprecedented opportunity to play a leadership role in the stewardship of our natural resources. Deliberate and cost-effective renovations to government buildings can generate substantial environmental, financial, and societal benefits—from reducing energy consumption to creating new jobs. Read this white paper to learn how BIM can help government agencies assess building performance, prioritize investments, and evaluate proposals to reduce operating costs.
