Software for Managing Government Facilities

CADapult FM Green & BIM

IES Green Solutions

Recently, mandates are being issued requiring government buildings to reduce their energy footprints and increase their green building operations, ranging from energy and water consumption to building air quality. As a facilities energy program manager, you must possess the right tools in order to assess accurately your building portfolio and propose corrective measure within your budget. Building Information Modeling, otherwise known as BIM, is the key that unlocks the door to greater building efficiency, allowing 3D analysis, prioritizing, and the right choices of energy performance improvements. Cadapult FM Green integrates seamlessly with BIM software like Revit Architecture, which can create and/or receive building models for existing structures. IES acts as a plug-in for Revit products and can be utilized before, during, and after the design process to help generate energy and carbon performance analysis in easy-to-read charts. In a click, you can input the location of the building, along with general information about the design, to create Solar and day-lighting analysis. You can gain a better understanding of how your design ranks within the booming sustainability marketplace, using tools like egress, cost, HVAC energy modeling, renewable and natural ventilation, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
