In recent years, there has been increasing awareness of the importance of using information technology in improving “green building” performance in terms of design, construction, and operation. Assessment tools help industry stakeholders evaluate the performance of green buildings. Building information modeling (BIM) enables architecture, engineering, and construction managers to evaluate the performance of green buildings during preconstruction. BIM-based sustainable analysis extracts the data from a building model, which supports the assessment for green building certification. This paper explores the use of BIM with other assessment tools, such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, BEAM Plus and Green Star. The study also examines the potential use of BIM in green building rating systems and the possibility of achieving credit via BIM tools and analysis software. In a case study of a construction project, using green building assessment tools integrated with BIM has led to an improved green building and facilitated the performance assessment of this building during the certification process
