So, What is BIM IQ®?

BIM IQ® is an umbrella concept for two main ideas – building product visualization and building product performance. BIM IQ® adds great value to a project by providing iterative design feedback early in the design process regarding aesthetics, performance, and financial ramifications. The BIM IQ® Ecosystem is growing. Currently, it is comprised of two parts – BIM IQ Render and BIM IQ Energy.

BIM IQ Render

Provides physically accurate building product visualizations of any architectural project, brought to reality by actual building products.
It is a powerful plug-in that will enable any designer to generate real-time imagery locally or in the cloud.

BIM IQ Energy

Provides robust building product performance feedback to better inform a designer of product selection ramifications during design phases when changes are still affordable to adjust.


How does it work?

But wait, we're a building envelope company.

And as the only company capable of designing, engineering, testing and manufacturing fully integrated building envelopes we continue to strive for ways to create smarter building envelopes. BIM IQ Render and BIM IQ Energy were invented to do just that. They are an Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® exclusive and there is nothing else like it anywhere.


Only one company provides all this from one source


Welcome to our digital engineering team

Architects/Designers/
Educators

We are experienced industry professionals, actively engaged in practice and theory. We research the industry in the field, and explore and analyze the academic realm, balancing design and technology. All with an eye towards creating Smarter Building Envelopes.

Engineers & Building Product Specialists

We are structural, thermal, mechanical, and electrical engineering experts who collaborate with our architectural designers, enabling us to support the vast professional roles of the AEC. Colleges of Architecture, Engineering, and Computer Science are our think-tanks. We leverage these emerging minds and combine them with industry findings, continually refining and advancing the design and construction process.

Energy Analysts

Our physicist and mathematics professionals are at the core of our building services. We simulate building performance at any phase of the design or building conception. We learn the energy and operational ramifications which allow building designers to make better, more timely decisions.

Inventors & Thought Leaders

We study our customers and tie their needs to emerging technologies, generating custom and leading-edge applications and workflows for the AEC.

BIM Experts

We are BIM Experts. We actively explore, teach, promote, and integrate research and trends in building intelligence.
