Ventilated Facades impact on sustainability

Facade engineering is an important area for sustainability advances in construction. Facades not only serve as the face of a building but can also be used to control the effects of the outer environment and make interiors more energy efficient.

Some key sustainability benefits of AGACAD’s BIM applications for facades:

  • 3D modelling helps to see more design options and achieve better efficiency.
  • Precise geometry ensures accurate bills of materials, so only what is needed is procured, helping save resources and avoid waste.
  • Model accuracy ensures quality documentation and helps identify errors during the design phase, which means fewer mistakes and less rework during construction.
  • Much better management of project information means that for any design changes, take-offs update automatically, avoiding rework and orders of unneeded materials.
  • Models enable a paperless building process and the use of augmented and virtual reality on site, with drawings no longer needed for control or as-built deliverables.
