Final report for the 2011/2011 IIF project, "Show-Me Solar Decathlon 2011 and ArchSt 4815 Studio V." From the original description: "Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data in the design through construction of a building project. It uses three‐dimensional, real‐time, dynamic modeling software to increase knowledge of building structure, systems, and components in buildings. In the architecture and engineering professions, two‐dimensional, paper‐based project information (construction drawings and specifications) is quickly giving way to 3D interactive Building Information Modeling. In order to provide students with applicable knowledge and hands‐on training in this emerging technology, it is necessary to incorporate special training of BIM in an advanced design studio (Studio V) and in the design and construction of the Show‐Me Solar Team entry in the 2011 Solar Decathlon."
