The ‘IFC (BIM) building data interpretation’ module enables highly automated interpretation of building structure objects imported from the IFC model. Interpretation covers such elements as: storeys (automatic or semi-automatic interpretation), walls with windows, doors and other openings, roofs, slabs with openings (automatic interpretation). A new feature is the automatic interpretation of rooms from ifcSpace objects.

The result of the interpretation is the appropriate native objects of the InstalSystem 5 software, forming a building structure ready for further editing and calculations. The resulting objects are independent of the loaded IFC model. This means that the building structure, obtained in such a highly automated manner, can be used for further design work in InstalSystem 5 – thermal calculations (heat load, energy performance) and as a basis for the design of heating, cooling and sanitary installations in the building.
