Abstract
The paper documents the implementation of automated data exchange process as an alternative to the manual workflow an architect needs to go through if he wants to comply with the EPR and acoustic regulations imposed by recent Flemish standards. This application is able to import specific IFC files and interpret its information. It automatically acquires the information needed and performs the calculations. The results of the calculation are then displayed through a user-friendly interface, to enable a designer evaluate his design and immediately make improvements to his model. This application was tested in a case-study using an exemplary BIM model. The overall functionality of the communication process from BIM to the application is analysed and the resulting concerns are outlined.
