Building performance assessment models can become very complex and difficultto manage. The scope and amount of building components and performance data/knowledgecan get very extensive, and the complex object structures make the associations between themodel entities quite intricate. Such difficulties directly impact the visual representation. Thispaper discusses ways of managing this complexity in a visual representation, with the aim of making the user interaction with the model easier without reducing the complexity of themodel. Furthermore, we will elaborate on these problems with an exploration of specificcases, along with the explicit approaches and solutions to the problems delivered by theauthors. While these solutions are grounded in the context of building performanceassessment, they are more broadly applicable to complex, integrated models
