AIANA VERDE, beautiful green flower, is Exergy’s new development project taking place in one of the most vibrant cities in Colombia, Medellín, which is now recognised as the Innovation Capital of Latin America. The 16-story building includes 42 offices, 7 retail units and 38 residential flats. The building is located in an exceptional downtown area, which has been recently renovated through several different urban regeneration projects.
AIANA VERDE is an exemplary of a high-performance building designed with the purpose of creating significant positive societal and environmental impact to the local community.
Our team in Colombia is managing the project development process and providing technical supervision to achieve project goals in the most effective and efficient manner. The Exergy UK team is supporting the Building Information Modelling tasks, whilst providing sustainable design guidance to the main architectural designer, A111 Arquitectura. The construction works of the AIANA VERDE are going to be completed by the end of 2020.
In order to deliver this high performance building, Exergy is working on several different tasks:
Exergy also aims to implement Building Information Modelling (BIM) to the highest UK standards on this flagship project in Colombia. The project team envisage that the design from its earliest conception through to construction and project handover will be delivered from a single source of truth via BIM. This means that the lead designers and the main contractors are all participating in the facilitation of the information management and project deliver from BIM.
BIM is used in numerous ways to stimulates efficiency for the entire project management team members, namely with:

The client demand for this project is to handover a ‘digital twin’ of the built asset to harness the efficiency during the building operational lifecycle. BIM will improve upon the design and construction stages but more importantly upon future building operations of Aiana Verde for years to come after project completion.
In order to deliver such high BIM requirements, Exergy is leading and supporting the following tasks:
