Abstract

The main goal of the present paper is to investigate how BIM tools and Ecotect can be integrated as active part of an integrated design process for conceptual architectural design. The integrated design has an interaction between the skills of the architect and the engineer thought-out the process and thereby avoiding problems solving after the design has been finalised. The process has been analysed from an architect's point of view dealing with design at fictive sites in Copenhagen. The results of the research indicate that BIM tools combined with Ecotect can deliver useable qualitative input for sketching investigations during a conceptual architectural design process.
