12 walls representative of the main current practices in straw construction were modelled in BIM.
The walls were described in 3D and commented on in French, English and Spanish, with a list of materials used and environmental and thermal performance levels estimated with the coconbim software.
This information was described by documents in pdf and docx format and available as «BIM files» (skp, rvt, pln format) which can be imported into software such as Archicad, ArchLine, Sketchup, Revit, etc. All these documents can be downloaded for free on the BimObject website.
