Solar Decathlon and BIM

I just found this in my draft posts here on the blog... Jena, I am o sorry I waited this long to post it!

Winning Teams from the Solar Decathlon Use Autodesk BIM Software
It was a big week for the twenty teams participating in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011. The 2 year contest culminated at the National Mall's West Potomac Park in Washington, D.C. at the end of September where the teams built their cost effective, energy efficient, and attractive solar powered houses. Judges viewed and scored their houses and selected the winners. All of the participants used Autodesk® Revit® Architecture to design their houses and many used Autodesk® Ecotect® Analysis and Autodesk® Project Vasari during the analysis phases. Check out this video featuring five of the teams, including two of the top winners.
