Reconceptualizing the Notion of 6D BIM in the Built Asset Industry Through the Lens of Building Certification Schemes and Sustainability Standards
The built asset industry is undergoing a significant digital transformation, with Building Information Modeling (BIM) at its core for efficient information integration. BIM’s role now extends to sustainability assessments, termed 6D BIM, promoting low-carbon built assets. Globally, various certification schemes such as LEED, BREEAM, WELL, and standards organizations like ISO and GRI are utilized to assess sustainability in construction. However, these schemes and standards have diverse criteria and contexts. This research examines 26 sustainability standards and 25 certification schemes, consolidating 189 specific indicators. It evaluates the role of BIM and Digital Twins in implementing these indicators, aiming to redefine the concept of 6D BIM and sustainability. This comprehensive perspective is crucial for achieving sustainability goals in the built asset industry, fostering a more environmentally responsible built environment.
