CODE2170 BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING TERM 1, 2019
Assignment 2 Project Brief – BIM-based Multi-disciplinary Performance Analysis and Team Collaboration
A/Professor Lan Ding and Mr William Craft
Learning Objective and Context
This project builds on the work completed so far in this course, where you have developed a building information model of a small design project. In this project, you will use a software analysis tool to undertake a rigorous performance analysis of a design that has been modelled using Revit and then, working with two other colleagues who undertake different analyses of the same model.
The key learning objective is to familiarise yourself with the process of design analysis through simulation, made possible by working with information-rich 3D models of design proposals.
A secondary learning objective is to build your confidence in making use of new software applications. The first step in using any new application is making sure that you understand its purpose. If you do that, then the visual interface used in all software these days makes it generally quite easy to figure out how to use the application. We will provide or point you to introductory learning resources for the analysis tools, but part of your task is to explore and exploit the capabilities of those applications on your own.
The entire class is required to form into teams of three people. We will not allow any team of 4 (or more), but will accept a very small number of 2-people teams if necessary (and only where the number of class members participating in the task is not a multiple of 3). Each team will select one of their project models to be analysed, and each member will then choose an analysis role for the team project. Obviously, each team member must adopt a different analysis role.
The analysis role can be any of a range of possibilities. Each team member must use different software. The application programs and associated roles are:
• BIM-based Energy Performance Analysis using Revit Insight 360 Plugin (or other Energy Analysis Tool). This role involves undertaking an energy performance analysis of the design. You are to use an energy analysis tool to conduct preliminary performance simulations that measure heating and cooling loads, lighting, or solar access. While we suggest a focus on heating and cooling loads, lighting, or solar access, you should feel free to carry out any energy performance analysis that interests you and contributes meaningfully to your team’s design goal.
Note: Revit 2019 Insight 360 Plugin can be downloaded (free) from Autodesk website.
• Model Check for Architectural or Interior Architectural Design Requirements using Solibri Model Checker (SMC). This role involves extending your knowledge of Ruleset in SMC in order to construct a specialised audit of the design that checks for architectural or interior architectural design requirements, e.g. compliance with Australian standards related to emergency egress or disability access, meeting the interior component requirements including furniture, clash detection of the model, etc. Australian standards are available through the UNSW Library web site:
• AS1428 General requirements for access – New building work
• National Construction Code (NCC is the new BCA): Section D Access and Egress
Note: Not all of building code clauses can be encoded into Ruleset in SMC. Select the building code clauses which can be specified using Ruleset in SMC.
In order to achieve any of these analyses with SMC, you will need to build your own Ruleset, drawing appropriate rules from the existing Ruleset available in SMC and adapting them to suit your requirements. In the case of code-checking, you will need to adapt the rules for the type of building you are analysing within the context of the Australian standards. You are not expected to do an exhaustive check, but should endeavour to do the best you can in the time available, focusing your check on a
specific aspect of the requirements.
Solibri Model Checker is available from www.solibri.com.au and MyAccess
Note: Student licenses of SMC are available for those who select to use SMC for design analysis (due to the limited student licenses).
• Cost X. Cost estimation package. This application is available in the labs. A video ‘CostX Overview’ is available at: http://www.exactal.com/products/demos while a video ‘CostX Demonstration’ is available at: http://www.exactal.com/products/demos ?name=full-demo
Each team member carries out an individual analysis of the selected design model and prepare an individual analysis report. Your report must explain what analyses you have conducted and the results of your analysis. Your team will then identify any issues, propose design changes to the model, and re-test it using the three analysis tools to confirm that you have indeed been able to improve the performance of the design.
The task is summarised as follows (refer to the flowchart figure);
• Establish your team (consisting of 3 members) and enrol your team in Moodle
• Select a common BIM model (from the assignment 1) to analyse
• Conduct individual analysis using one of software tools and provide in-depth discussions of your
• The team meet to discuss the findings from the individual analyses and agree on a set of design
changes, including a well-defined rationale for making those changes
• The design model is then to be adjusted to incorporate the design changes and re-tested by each team
• The team will collaborate to produce a concluding section that outlines the rationale and nature of the
proposed changes, as well as the results of the re-testing and an overall group conclusion.
Discuss individual analysis results, identify key issues, and agree design changes
Make design changes and re-test model

Report discussion, design solution and analysis outcome, and write final conclusions (Member 3 contributes to Team Report)
(Note: Individual Report 60%; Team Report 40%)
Each team member is expected to play an equal and identified role in the preparation of the group report. Part of that will be the analysis role that you adopt and the individual reports associated with that, but it is also expected that each team member will take on a specific task in the preparation of the shared part of the report, referred to the above figure as the “team report”.
Each team will submit one final report (consisting of individual analysis report sections and team report sections). The final report should be concise and must be well-illustrated.
You must decide who in your team will do each part and report that on the Title Page of your report. As a rough guide, the combined team report should be about the same length as each of the individual reports. The author of each part of the team report sections must be explicitly identified.
The assessment of this task will be out of 100% and falls under two broad categories:
1. Individual Analysis Report (60 marks): individually assessed with the focus on the degree of rigour and thoughtfulness displayed in the analysis process.
2. Team Report (40 marks): this will be a single group assessment shared by each member of the team and based on the team report sections of the final submission. It will be assumed that each person contributed the part ascribed to them in that section and that those contributions were roughly equal. Each team member will be awarded the team mark, unless it is apparent that they did not contribute at all because no section is ascribed to them, in which case they will be awarded 0 for team report component.
The assignment 2 will count a 45% of total mark in the course.
Due – 5:00pm Sunday 12 May 2019
Please submit your final project report in Moodle: https://moodle.telt.unsw.edu.au/login/index.php Click on “Submission” button after uploading your file.
The submission should include:
• A file (the final report from the team) in PDF format called 1234567.pdf, where 1234567 is your student ID number.
Please enrol your team in Moodle (refer to “Choose your groups here for the assignment 2”), which will enable a member of your team to submit your final project report on behalf of the team.
