Course Information


Green architecture is the harmless industry that should be followed to save this world, overgo any obstacles, and a
lifestyle of savings and ease. Since BIM is the smart system that is integrated and categorized, it would a powerful tool to
analyze and simulate the desired situations in any design. In this course we are going to learn how to use BIM tools to
design a green building through knowing the primary potentials, and analyze it for Energy consumption, potential
renewable resources, ventilation, and lighting.
BIM is the integrated system to go through this process

Why BIM?
BIM (Building Information Modeling) models the information so each element of the building has its properties; so it could
be analyzed in a high performance.
BIM software would be used are: Revit 2022, Green Building Studio, Insight 360, FormIt 360, Dynamo, and more plugins.
Course is completed in 20 hours within 10 x 2-hours-lectures, each lecture contains a whole module designated to cover
all needed tools.

To confirm that the attendee are getting the details the right way, understanding these tools in a right practical way, we
made the lecture goes through the following steps:
– First 10-15 minutes for the previous topic revision, discussing any questions, and reviewing activities.
– Going through the lecture topic and detailing it for 45 minutes.
– Taking a coffee break for 5-10 minutes that refreshes the brain.
– Going again through the lecture topic details for 45 minutes.
– The last 15 minutes for the module sum-up revision, discussing questions and the next activity
