Abstract [en]

The building sector contributes significantly to the energy use and related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Prior research has mainly focused on the impacts associated with material selection and building operation, thereby the embodied impact of the construction phase has got limited attention. The construction phase usually suffers from an inherent uncertainty in which construction operations, activities, and resources interact with each other in a complex manner. The discrete event simulation (DES) has been recognized to be a consistent simulation approach to capture these uncertainties and interactions. DES can also complement conventional life cycle assessment (LCA) tools, used for sustainable design and environmental strategies. However, the major challenge has been the implementation of the DES into practice which needs significant effort and work in order to create a realistic model of the construction process. To overcome this obstacle, this paper proposes a framework that integrates building information modeling (BIM), DES, and LCA in order to support the environmental evaluation and also facilitate implementation of the DES model by utilizing the data-rich BIM. Finally, the practical application of the proposed BIM-DES-LCA framework is demonstrated in a preliminary prototype and the areas where further development is required have been highlighted to address in future research
