A BIM WORKFLOW FOR ITERATIVE AND INFORMATIVE ENERGY MODELING
A Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow is
developed to automate data transfer across software
platforms and facilitate an iterative energy modeling
practice. The workflow comprises a translation of Revit
model geometry and parameters using a custom
application for the automated export of an eQUEST
input file. Revisions can be made in Revit and reimported
into a revised version of the eQUEST file. This
workflow further utilizes a shared web-based Access
database of project information, which includes energy
analysis parameters such as ventilation rates, internal
loads, and use schedules that can be synchronized with
Revit model parameters and subsequently fed into the
eQUEST input file. Ultimately the workflow could
expand to support other text-based input files and
