Integration of performance based building standards into business processes using IFC open standards to enhance innovation and sustainable development

Objective

The strategically very important building and construction (B&C) industry is now facing a paradigm shift, from where the buildings and building products are no longer considered only as physical objects, but are rather seen as service arenas designed t o facilitate management of life cycle performance and value adding services to meet changing end user needs. This paradigm shift, coupled with the drive for customer orientation, sustainability and ICT deployment is regarded as the key drivers for change and improvement in the B&C sector. New manufacturing processes based on the IFC standards will create new and more efficient business processes, thus facilitating the construction sectors great potential for cost reduction and productivity increase, consequently, improving the competitiveness of the B&C industry. Focus on improving the integration of open IFC- and performance- based standards for sustainable development into business processes (A2) is thus the main objective of the project. Due to the relevance of IFC and sustainability for the other two actions in the call, the project also links with sustainable building products and services, including sustainable housing (A1), as well as standards in public procurement processes.

The suite of IFC standards for shared information exchange has the potential to change the entire B&C industry. These standards form the foundation and structure for effective e-collaboration practices, B2B and B2C exchanges, and B2A/building permit and public tendering procedures. Applicants are a strong pan-European Consortium with 28 members from 11 European countries and with 5 European wide networks, comprising major stakeholders from industry including SMEs, users, R&D and standardisation as well as China, Australia.
