In the last few months, we had a chance to use the xbim viewer on some of our customers’ incredibly large and complex projects. While the models looked great when stationary, moving about the model was not as fast as we’d like it. So we’ve done some work to handle these mega models better using

NetZeroFlow is a technology platform and carbon data set that drives the design of new buildings and the refurbishment and re-purposing of existing buildings, to achieve a net zero carbon outcome. The Landscape COVID-19 has changed the way buildings will be designed and operated in the future. Design teams need to work increasingly remotely, where they once

The challenges of doing embodied carbon calculations  Last week marked the end of a 9-month long ‘NetZeroFlow’ project part funded by Innovate UK’s Sustainable Innovation Fund, in which xbim and Circular Ecology joined forces to develop a solution enabling architects and engineers to measure and reduce embodied carbon as their designs evolve.  Driving carbon down to ‘net zero’, and improving life cycle assessment, are being addressed by many, but this project has had the combined 60 years’ experience of the xbim co-founders behind it.  xbim’s expertise in liberating and improving BIM data means that they are uniquely placed to challenge the existing status quo; carbon life-cycle assessments are hard, often

iCIM is an online collaborative Building Information Modelling (BIM) tool that facilitates the carbon assessment of a building. It does this by informing designers, throughout the building life cycle, of the impact of their decisions on carbon. Through its use it will lead to zero-carbon and low-impact buildings, by compliance checking for energy performance with
