De-Bug the Building Code: How to Make Complying with NECB Simple


Carl Storms

Duration: 1 hour(s) Category(s):
Cost: FREE


What do you do when your building must comply with codes? How can you navigate all the systems involved in a project simply and effectively – and keep errors to a minimum?

Watch this one-hour presentation where we’ll discuss how to remove human error from building energy code requirements and replace them with automated processes. This presentation is not designed as a how-to, but is designed to open minds to the possibilities available.

After this 1-hour webcast, you will be able to:
• Describe the benefits of a using a BIM work flow to automate building code requirements
• Understand how building modeling applies to potential energy consumption analysis
• List strategies that can be incorporated into a BIM project to lessen human error in calculating the building code
• View examples of building energy code compliance being automated in a BIM project
• Outline the next steps towards integration of the building code into a BIM project
