The use of building information modeling to complement sustainability in construction projects, dubbed "Green BIM," could provide value-added and bottom line benefits to the industry, according to Skanska. "Green BIM helps us and our project stakeholders, such as architects and designers, to make informed decisions earlier in the design process. This makes a greater impact on the resource efficiency and performance of a building or infrastructure project," said Tiina Koppinen, Skanska business development director.
