Energy modellers all over the world are gathering in Atlanta, Georgia from September 28th to the 2nd of October for ASHRAE’s Energy Modelling Conference. This will be my third trip to this conference, last year I presented my topic of bi-directional data exchange using Revit and IESVE. This time I will be conducting a Revit modelling training workshop for energy integration on Monday the 28th for the pre-conference events. The early-bird deadline to register for the conference ends on the 14th of August. Although you don’t need to be registered to the conference to attend this workshop.
This hands-on workshop guides you through the proven workflow to seamlessly integrate Building Information Models in the energy modelling process. This workflow allows you to deliver results faster and earlier in the design process, while giving you the ability to manage design iterations. All of this can be done with a LEED-compliant energy modelling tool, such as IESVE, TRACE, and OpenStudio, which saves you time by avoiding the rework that would otherwise be necessary from transitioning to this tool. The integration process works by preparing a clean gbXML import file, avoiding errors before they happen. A robust modeling structure is followed to ensure building models are built up correctly from the start.
- Construct building geometries in Revit for a seamless integration using the gbXML import file into IESVE, TRACE and OpenStudio for energy modelling (as well as other gbXML compatible applications).
- Update the building geometry from design changes and re-integrate it back into the energy model.
Attendees will receive 8 CE hours for GBCI, as well an enrollment key to the online training program, containing 5 hours of video tutorials.
