Abstract

The use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) with sustainable design is getting widespread since it helped architects, engineers, and contractors in achieving the sustainability goal. The present work is using green and certified products and materials to be integrated with Building Information Model (BIM) to simulate and generate a conceptual design for green and sustainable design. The use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) would help achieving sustainability, which would be predictable and possible. Revit Architecture is a tool of BIM technology that can be used for building designing and modeling.

The research represents a database system for green building products which uses the concepts of object-oriented database. The integration between Building Information Modeling (BIM) through Revit Architecture and database management system is useful for achieving sustainability. Sustainability goals through using green products and certified materials would be achieved through the design and construction process with Building Information Model (BIM) assistance. BIM in particular is a concept that can improve the design and drawings correlation in 3D Mode, which is automatically coordinated in all views such as plans, sections, and elevations, almost in accurate and precise details.
