The use of performance-based design will be explored as an option to achieving compliance with the NCC’s mandatory Performance Requirements. 

The seminar will explain the fundamental principles of the performance-based code and how it is applied, along with an outline of ABCB resources available to support industry in its application.

    The fundamentals that underpin BIM and Sustainability will be explored by highlighting when and why environmental analysis should be undertaken and what tools are available within BIM software packages. 

    This seminar will explain what each analysis is, how it works and why it’s important. It will also explore non-BIM tools and other considerations beyond BIM that designers should be mindful of when creating truly sustainable designs.

    This session is suitable for both the novice and expert in BIM and similarly so in sustainability.

    Presenter Biography:

    Learning Outcomes:

    After completing this course, attendees will be able to:
    • Identify opportunities for greater sustainable design outcomes within BIM
    • Implement processes and support structures that aid sustainable design and analysis within BIM
    • Recall individual environmental analyses currently available within Revit (BIM software package) and the iterative design processes they support
    • Recognise other sustainable design analyses and considerations beyond BIM
