Rapid developments in building design and analysis software coupled with advances in desktop and laptop computational power have led to the emergence of digital models for architectural design and documentation: virtual buildings, or building information models. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is less commonly thought of for design, yet the ability to rapidly derive alternative, information-rich views of building models is key to making quantitatively informed design decisions for high performance buildings. BIM is also often seen as relevant to the design of large buildings, but small projects are envelope or skin load dominated. Climate and how we design for it has a much larger impact on a small building's energy consumption and performance. Good quantitative data is essential for architects to make more intelligent choices about how they design all projects - but especially small ones.
