Maybe a little less?

This article examines the influence of the design parameters on the determined capacity as well as the required energy demand in order to answer the question to how much energy can be saved by reducing the comfort criteria.

Recycling building with C2C

Building with a positive footprint. The Cradle to Cradle® principle makes it feasible and offers a holistic approach for construction projects within a sustainable development framework. We will introduce the principle and show you how BIM supports implementation, and the influence it has on the MEP…

Revit and LINEAR in Action – the Spandau Ufer

Building with a positive footprint. The Cradle to Cradle® principle makes it feasible and offers a holistic approach for construction projects within a sustainable development framework. We will introduce the principle and show you how BIM supports implementation, and the influence it has on the MEP…

Less is more

The value preferences of industrial societies are at odds with the guiding principle of sustainable development. Consumption has been increasing for years, while resources are being used up faster than they can regenerate naturally.

LINEAR Desktop - All Hat and a lot of Cattle!

With its Desktop for Revit, LINEAR Solutions offers a complete solution for realizing BIM processes in MEP design. With modules that build on one another, this solution offers an optimally functioning ecosystem which, particularly through the high interconnectedness of its functions, demonstrates…

Annual Simulation - Aren’t they the Same?

The calculation of the required cooling capacity for a plant dimensioning is increasingly based on dynamic simulation methods. In the previous parts of this article series, the influencing factors on the cooling load calculation according to VDI 2078 have been discussed. In this fourth and final…

Urban Mining Cities as "Raw Material Mine”

Wood, steel and plastic are just examples of materials that are currently in short supply in the construction industry. Urbanization is increasing, leading to a construction boom and high demand for building materials. However, the construction industry is experiencing procurement problems due to…

Fact Check: Three myths about Revit families

Good Revit families are an essential component for successful project design. Therefore in almost every modeling guideline you will find an indication of which properties are preferable for families and which are rather not. Unfortunately, the impression arises that many statements have solidified…

DGNB-certification – How Building Can Become Sustainable

We are often asked what characterizes a sustainable building. If there’s no time to give a comprehensive answer, we say something like: A sustainable building generates more energy than it consumes. It is made of reused building materials that can be re-extracted and cleanly separated by type. It…
