Database of embodied environmental impacts of building construction systems and its applications for use in BIM tools Archicad and REVIT

Project ID: TJ02000086
Funding provider: Technology Agency of the Czech Republic
Investigator at UCEEB: Ing. Marie Nehasilová
Project duration: 1.3.2019 – 28.2.2021
Partners: DEKPROJEKT s.r.o.

1) Development of the environmental module for the BIM plugin, allowing models processed in the most used BIM tools in the Czech Republic to automatically calculate and easily optimize the embodied environmental impacts of the entire building and the detailed embodied impacts of the used constructions (basic by December 2019, further expansion by February 2021).

2) A description of the process of creating environmental data for the plugin to allow for further consistent expansion and upgrade of this environmental module (by December 2020).

3) Case studies for verification of the new module: Comparison of embodied environmental impacts calculated using the developed BIM module with embodied impacts calculated by hitherto commonly used procedures in the Czech Republic (by February 2021)

The project is subsidised by TAČR, programme Zéta.
