Autodesk Apps for LEED® Automation
The Autodesk Apps for LEED® Automation have direct access to LEED Online and aim to drastically simplify LEED documentation and project management. They help the LEED team monitor tasks, teams, milestones, documents and action items, while providing insightful and actionable reports, charts and dashboards. The apps, based on Autodesk PLM 360, support LEED v2009 NC, CI, CS and EBOM, and will be offered to a few select pilot customers through the Autodesk Feedback Community. Please contact [email protected] if you are interested in piloting this promising technology.
In addition, Autodesk also offers following LEED tools:
Super-fast Daylighting Analysis for LEED® - Now available on Autodesk Labs, the new Daylighting Plug-in for Revit analyzes the entire model using Autodesk’s 360 Rendering cloud service in a matter of minutes. This Daylighting analysis tool streamlines LEED EQc8.1 calculations and credit documentation within Revit, and it can reduce time required for a daylighting analysis and documentation workflow from a couple of weeks to under a few hours. The cloud-based Autodesk 360 Rendering service also provides advanced daylight and artificial lighting simulation capabilities directly from detailed Revit models. Try it for free here.
Revit Credit Manager for LEED®: Autodesk recently demonstrated Revit Credit Manager for LEED®. This Revit add-in aims to automate LEED calculations and improve design decisions for a number of LEED credits, right from within the design environment. With real-time feedback earlier in the project, it will make LEED submittals faster and more reliable. The emerging technology will be offered to a few pilot customers through the Autodesk Feedback Community. Please contact [email protected] if you are interested in piloting this promising technology.
Automated Commissioning on a Tablet for LEED: Autodesk BIM 360 Field on Tablets and mobile devices can automate field processes and distribute plans and drawings, saving significant time for users and the project overall. These tools allow automated LEED commissioning to Perform Inspections, Commission Equipment, and Track Issues in the field. Try it for free here.
Tally™- This new application for Revit calculates the environmental impact of building materials. Developed by KT Innovations, an affiliate of the architecture firm KieranTimberlake, Tally provides real-time insight into how materials-related decisions made during design influence a building’s overall ecological footprint. Backed by GaBi data from PE INTERNATIONAL, the application enables Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on demand, documenting information across eight life cycle impact categories that aligns with LEED and other rating systems. It received a 2014 Building Information Modeling (BIM) Award from the American Institute of Architects. Tally is available as a 30-day free trial through the Autodesk Exchange App Store.
