Building Renovation Process Map in Private and Public Works to Improve Communication and Data Exchange ICAMC 2020 Building Renovation Process Map in Private and Public Works to Improve Communication and Data Exchange ICAMC 2020

Along the building process the cooperation among several stakeholders and the integration of information during the whole project life cycle, whether it is a new project or a renovation intervention, are two key essential factors. In fact, in AEC sector the loss of information, the lack of data and the improper or repetitive exchange of information are common issues that may cause delays and cost increase.

The lack of an appropriate information management along the life cycle of a construction work is one of the major issues that AEC sector is facing. The collection and exchange of information is already complex for new buildings, but it becomes even more difficult for renovations. Thus, the building logbook could have an essential role in improving the availability and quality of data for several stakeholders involved in the building process.

Early Stage Energy Refurbishment Assessment Tool for Buildings Using High-End BIM Data: Benefits and Challenges. PROCEEDINGS MDPI 2020 Early Stage Energy Refurbishment Assessment Tool for Buildings Using High-End BIM Data: Benefits and Challenges. PROCEEDINGS MDPI 2020

t is important to assess the effectiveness of different energy refurbishment scenarios in the early design stages of apartment buildings. This paper demonstrates the main features of a new tool BIMeaser (BIM Early Stage Energy Scenario - a product of the European Union Horizon 2020 project BIM4EEB), which supports the decision-making process in the early stage of design. The tool uses the BIM and linked data from the BIM Management System (BIMMS) for faster initialisation of the actual state, resulting in more accurate building models.

One of the main challenges of the construction industry is the management of the huge amount of data generated by the stakeholders during the whole lifecycle of the buildings. Data needs to be found, collected, shared, and updated minimizing the process and technological inefficiencies. Recent advances have been seen in the adoption of BIM-based approaches and in the implementation of CDE as an agreed source of information.

Workshop: BIM4EEB: A BIM-Based Toolkit for Efficient rEnovation in Buildings Workshop: BIM4EEB: A BIM-Based Toolkit for  Efficient rEnovation in Buildings

On October 29th the workshop corresponding to the mid-term conference of BIM4EEB (Acronym of BIM Based Toolkit for Efficient rEnovation in Buildings, Horizon Project under grant agreement N. 820660 ) project was held during the Sustainable Places 2020 event. The main focus of the workshop was a general introduction of the project combined with vertical insights on the single tools that have been developed or are still in development. BIM4EEB grows from simple consideration: according to a BPIE analysis on EPC data, about 97% of building stock, currently not in A level, must be upgraded to achieve 2030 decarbonization objectives.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has the potential to become a technology which will help to use a holistic information repository to generate and represent relevant information in different building life-cycle stages (BLCS) to dedicated groups of stakeholders. However, the scope of model components of BIM data (e.g., IFC meta-data) is limited and some parts of it are not modelled in a manner that supports the diversity of engineering use cases.

Interoperability in the construction sector is a key issue and researchers, developers and designers have tackled since the introduction of CAD systems. Traditionally, engineers, architects and site operators interact and track their information exchange through paper or digitalized drawings and e-mails. With the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM) techniques and tools, operators are using new solutions and methods to keep track and exploit these data.
