Creating Your Toolkit for Sustainable Design
In this In-Practice session Ashley Mulhall and Chuck Kottka discuss how OWP uses ARCHICAD in sustainable design to meet the challenges of certification programs like LEED v4 and The Living Building Challenge. Sustainable Building Design at the highest level requires an in-depth and fine-tuned design process. And tools are scattered across various platforms, some within ARCHICAD, others independent. The search for the perfect tool is never over and the stakes are high. Today’s standards require more than BIM. This presentation documents our search for a comprehensive toolkit and offers solutions that are complimentary to ARCHICAD that produce a well-rounded sustainable design workflow.
