Abstract: This paper discusses a need to connect BIM (Building Information Modeling), BPS (Building Performance Simulation) and BEAM (Building Environmental Assessment Methods) like LEED, BREEAM, and DGNB, it addresses BIM use case for interfacing CAD tool with analysis tool. State of the art in each field is discussed; an opportunity to improve information exchange is founded. A novel framework for automated information exchange using BIM technologies for BPS and BEAM is proposed. Result is a solution for connecting proprietary BIM software (Autodesk Revit) with a national certification system (Chilean CES), embodied in a spreadsheet.
