Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Two subjects in building technology that is becoming increasingly important is theHVAC and BIM. If these could be combined in a good way, the efficiency and thequality of our buildings may be increased. Because BIM is a relatively new technologywith a new approach, it has not yet had an impact in the HVAC design. But it hasrecently started to turn up software that can handle BIM in the HVAC designindustry. Contact was established with consultancy Bengt Dahlgren AB, which wantedto have an evaluation of this new way to design HVAC-systems. The purpose of thisstudy is therefore to answer the question: Can there, on today's market, be beneficialfor a company with high competence and experience in designing/constructingHVAC-systems with traditional CAD-software to make the investment required tomove to a BIM-based option. This was answered through interviews, surveys,comparisons of software and literature studies. The conclusion was that the HVACand Plumbing industry is not yet ready to implement full BIM because the softwareand and available technology´s is not enough developed and fully functional. But it isthe futures technology, and the company has to be prepared and skill level must bewithin the company if they want to compete on the market of the future.
