Request for Proposal: Automated Geometry Data Capture

RMI’s Portfolio Energy Optimization (PEO) initiative is focused on developing a scalable, mass-customized approach to identifying zero-carbon retrofit packages for commercial buildings and evaluating their financial return from the perspective of the portfolio owner. We are developing software tools, working with portfolio owners, and directly testing and evaluating new technologies that can dramatically increase the efficiency of portfolios of operating buildings.

PEO is seeking a contractor to identify and work with various sources of data that can be used to automate the collection of multiple geometry variables required for building energy modeling. The contractor may leverage existing software applications, customize existing software applications, or develop new software applications in proposed geometry automation approaches.

The goal is to develop an automated geometry data collection process that will reduce the need for manual data collection, thereby accelerating the ability to scale PEO’s mass-customized retrofit analysis approach.

The contractor will:

  • Lead on the development of an automated geometry solution
  • Meet with RMI staff, and other RMI partners as necessary, to ensure compatibility with other PEO software development processes

Interested parties should submit two separate proposals: one including the Formal Criteria and Technical Criteria and one including the Financial Criteria specified in the RFP. For details and required information, please download the RFP.


Deadline: Proposals must be submitted via email to by November 1, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time.
