Using BIM and/or Geographic Information System (GIS) to evaluate sites within a given area to determine the optimal site location for a future project. The site data collected is used to first select the site and then position the building and infrastructure based on other criteria.
- • Use calculated decision making to determine if potential sites meet the required criteria according to project requirements, technical factors, and financial factors
- • Decrease costs of utility demand and demolition
- • Increase energy efficiency
- • Minimize risk of hazardous material
- • Maximize return on investment
- • GIS and/or BIM Authoring software
- • 3D Model manipulation
Team Competencies Required
- • Ability to manipulate, navigate, and review a 3D model
- • Knowledge and understanding of local authority's system (GIS, database information)
