Abstract: The study case in display is the construction of a new car dealership building in Belgium. This project targets high energy standards as to reach net zero energy consumption. The design has included an integrated approach from the early-design stage in order to make a strong futureproofed building and to combine all the technoenergetical aspects into one single model. BIM-model methodology have been implemented in the design process. This methodology enables software interaction without losing design information. The process accelerates the project simulation time by reducing modelling time, lowering error margins of interpretation, enhancing analysis and allowing more time to deeper decision-making solutions. BIM methodology applied in this project covers a large spectrum of solutions on facade, MEP design, as well as architectural features, guiding the multidisciplinary team towards net zero-energy building (NZEB) and carbon neutral building.
