Building model data extraction software

Building model data extraction software automatically pulls data out of a digital building
design models and populate that data into the correct fields of compliance documents. For example the initial application of this system is the LEED1
application process.

Currently it
can take days to weeks to enter data into a LEED application just for the energy efficiency section, which contains approximately 1400 fields. Because of this, architects and developers are reluctant to go through the LEED certification process, and if they do, it is done at the end of the design process.

The CMU software automatically pulls data out of a building
design energy model and populates that data into the correct fields of the LEED application.
Because this software can make the application process happen in a matter of minutes, it will
enable the industry to not only save costs and reduce data entry errors, but also to do ‘what
if’ assessments of different design options to determine their impact on LEED scores.
