Integrated BIM-GIS based design for high energy efficiency hospital buildings

Roberto Di Giulio, Beatrice Turillazzi, Luca Marzi, Stefania Pitzianti


The interoperability of the tools for managing and controlling the design process is one of the themes on which research and innovations are focussed in the field of BIM (Building Information Modelling) systems. A strategic objective of the STREAMER research, co-funded by the European Union within the context of the Seventh Framework Programme, is that of defining the tools and methods of designing hospital buildings that allow for a 50% reduction in energy consumption and emissions in large healthcare districts. Contributing to the achievement of this result is the creation of integrated tools, based on BIM and GIS systems, capable of providing an effective backup to the decisions of the various subjects involved in the project and the management of hospital complexes.
