The rapid increase in worldwide energy consumption has raised a global concern about the future of energy use and its impact on the surrounding environment. Such impact is causing resource degradation, increased carbon emissions, depletion of the ozone layer, and global warming. As the building sector is considered one of the main energy-consuming sectors, the trend of sustainable designs, green projects, energy optimization and reduction policies are many countries’ recent focus.

The digital revolution has begun to the next stage. BIM is changing the way we plan; build maintain and use our social and economic infrastructure. This enables to plan new infrastructure more effectively, build it at lower cost and operate and maintain it more efficiently. Above all, it will enable citizens to make better use of the existing infrastructure. BIM holds large amounts of information about its design, operation and current condition. This enables engineers, contractors and suppliers to integrate complex components cutting out waste and reducing the risk of errors. This provides the customers with real-time information about available services and with accurate assessments of the condition of assets.
