So... now if you are a student in a design studio and you create this beautiful building model in Revit that you have worked on for the past three months you can tell your professor what LEED rating it is? How many students in a design studio will LEED rate their building in the presentation... or at least pin point the areas where they would achieve LEED points?

Just another advantage of Building Information Modeling.
