Application of the BIM Technology in the HVAC Design for an Office Building in Nanjing
School of Energy and Mechanical Engineering, Nanjing Normal University, Nanjing, Jiangsu
Based on the 2-dimensional design, this paper takes an office building in Nanjing as an example to use the BIM technology for the 3-dimensional optimization. With the detailed layout of pipelines, it sets the elevation to replan the original unreasonable designing. Then based on the BIM technology, it uses Navisworks to carry out the collision detection, puts forward the adjustment scheme, and gives types of invalid collision according to the practical experience. And finally it sums up some experiences, which provide optimization scheme for the future design.
