Analysis and development of a Lifecycle Assessment Database using BIM model
Entuitive is a building performance engineering firm with over 130 employees in 4 offices across Canada. Entuitive has a vision to design advanced structures and systems that support a sustainable future, and utilize advanced BIM and parametric modelling technologies to achieve this. As part of their internal building performance initiative, Entuitive has approached the Centre for Construction and Engineering Technology (CCET) at George Brown College (GBC) to create a database of Lifecycle Assessment Data (LCA)1. By analyzing Entuitive’s existing BIM models, the GBC research team is expected to create a database of the structural information which includes concrete and steel. Utilizing the gathered data, Entuitive hopes to be able to measure the carbon footprint of each project starting from the design phases. This will ensure the delivery of most optimum possible solutions are delivered to Entuitive’s clients – from a durability, cost and environmental perspective.
