There are two key areas......where we can make bigger, more meaningful differences @caseyrutland
At concept stage. & Existing building stock. @caseyrutland
7 pillars of sustainability Social Sustainability Carbon Neutrality Water self-sufficiency Sustainable material selection Climate change adaptability Positive community contribution Sustainable in operation @caseyrutland
Social Sustainability @caseyrutland Biophilia Hypothesis: The concept that humans have an innate attraction to living things and nature.
Carbon Neutrality Shape, Orientation, Massing, Materials, Size Activities & Associated systems The supply of energy. All now based upon reliable calculable data from BIM files @caseyrutland
Self-Sufficient Water Use Surface area calcs. vs. water usage Now based upon actively updated calculable data. @caseyrutland
Sustainable Material Choices Globally, the construction industry is arguably one of the most resource- intensive and environmentally damaging industries in the world. The construction sector consumes 40% of all extracted materials. Data extracted from models. @caseyrutland
Climate Change Adaptation Buildings last a long time. Using BIM we can simulate what the effects of a 2 degree temp rise will be upon the building and its occupants. We can simulate the implications of rising floodwater. Ensuring robust longevity. We can mitigate against these occurrences and the effects our buildings have on the environment. @caseyrutland
Sustainable in Operation @caseyrutland The result will be more and more 'intelligent' buildings, metering themselves and verifying their performance against benchmarks.

BIM for Refurb: Sydney Opera House @caseyrutland Controlled whole-life costs and environmental data Environmental performance, maintenance and investment is predictable. Lifecycle costs can be analysed and understood.
Quote... Some degree of climate change appears inevitable. @caseyrutland
Quote... Whether it is manageable or catastrophic, will not be determined in Washington, Geneva or Beijing, or by domestic legislation and international treaties or by silver-bullet energy technologies. @caseyrutland
Quote... But mostly by how we – the architecture, planning and building community – respond and act. @caseyrutland
Quote... We can choose to plan, design and build truly sustainable, liveable and resilient built environments; @caseyrutland
Quote......or we can accelerate climate change and ecological degradation, leading to increased human suffering. @caseyrutland
Quote... How we plan, design, and build today will have lasting impacts for our children, communities and planet. @caseyrutland
