Abstract: The objective of this study was to develop a tool capable of analyzing various design schemes during the early stages of design by building a reasonable BIM data system for sustainability analysis and using the architectural BIM model to carry out sunshine and energy analysis in a web environment. We devised a module to extract the variables required for energy analysis from IFC files and developed a software program to gather meteorological data, material properties and management schedule so as to calculate the annual energy requirement and consumption of a building in order to predict its energy efficiency rating. A web prototype was also built to implement the tool for sunshine and energy analysis.
