Abstract: In order to overcome the low accuracy of high-rise residential construction energy consumption monitoring, this paper proposes a new BIM building model-based real-time monitoring method of high-rise residential construction energy consumption. This method first analyses the BIM building model; then uses BIM related application software to build a three-dimensional building information model; and then calculates the energy consumption of the construction life cycle, including the preparation stage, the construction maintenance stage, the operation stage and the demolition disposal stage. Finally, the monitoring performance is compared and analysed through an example. The experimental results show that compared with the traditional high-rise residential construction energy consumption monitoring method, the error between the monitoring results of high-rise residential construction energy consumption and the actual energy consumption value is less, 377.94 (kW · h), which proves that the monitoring results based on BIM are more accurate.

Keywords: BIM building model; high-rise residential; construction energy consumption; monitoring method.
