Description – A revised and thoroughly updated Annex 1 to the Grant Agreement.
Description – The Framework for Regulations and Standards will be a written report (PDF) on suggestions for future policies and standards. The suggested future policies and standards will not only respond directly to existing barriers identified, but will also reinforce existing regulations and cover areas that are not yet regulated. The suggestions for future policies and standards will be assessed with regard to how they can facilitate the transition towards circular and dynamic buildings, their effect on waste reduction and the reduction of the use of virgin resources, as well as their impact on different stakeholders. Impact assessment of current policy actions will be based on resource productivity indicators and other key performance indicators (as defined in the EU Resource Efficiency Roadmap), the avoided environmental burden and the estimated financial cost related to current policy actions. To allow for an effective analysis, it is necessary to narrow the scope of the policy instruments to be investigated. Two approaches are to be taken to define the boundaries of the analysis. The first is the limitation of the geographic scope in relation to the BAMB project. In addition to broadly applicable EU level regulations, policies and standards that are to be examined; 3 locations will be defined based on pilot locations and the geographical activity of the involved BAMB partners in order to sufficiently narrow the scope for an in-depth analysis at the local and national levels. This does not exclude however that best practices be identified in other national and local contexts. The second approach to determine the scope is to identify the policy levels to be investigated based on: 1) the narrowed geographic scope that has been selected, 2) the impact of the regulations, policies, and standards on BAMB. For each defined geographical area, the policies impacting BAMB on the different links of the value chain are going to be investigated and mapped in a policy matrix. The policy matrix is a table to be used to identify and categorize policy instruments, providing a broad view of the elements investigated. To categorize instruments, the matrix will take into account the different links of the value chain (raw materials, production of products, construction, building use, end of life/waste, reuse/recycle) as well as the type or objective of the policy instruments in question (judicial- legislation/regulation, authorization, control; financial- taxes, subsidies, premiums, specific financial mechanisms; public investments– infrastructure, equipment, human resources, excellence; information- raising awareness, training and education, labelling; research and innovation – technical research, science, foundations; etc.). Content for the final recommendations will also take into account conclusions and input from a governance platform within the BAMB project, as well as interactions with other EU and international platforms dedicated to related areas of work (i.e. UNEP – SBCI, JRC etc.).
Description – The Data Management Plan is a document that formally outlines how data and issues regarding intellectual property are to be handled, both during the project and after its completion. To be addressed in the plan: o Partners’ ‘positive list’ regarding access rights to background o Partners’ ‘negative list’ regarding access rights to background o Description of data to be generated by the project (type, format etc.) o Data storage requirements o During project o Long-term/ post-project o Data management o Security o Back-ups o Designation of responsible partner(s) o Policies for the future use and exploitation of data o The dissemination status of all deliverables (public, confidential, classified)
Description: Report summarizing User Requirements with respect to Reversible Building Design and the developed tools aiming to enhance circular and dynamic building design (D8, D9, D10). The user requirements include the definition of the different types of users, buildings, systems and components to be included in the development of the tools as well as the functional requirements of the tools. The report will summarize user requirements with respect to the use of transformation and re-use potential tools as well as the design protocol with associated virtual simulator. It will be structured around 5 chapters: 1) General requirements for reversible buildings 2) User Requirements for the Transformation Capacity tool 3) User Requirements for the Reuse Potential tool 4) User Requirements for the Design protocol and virtual simulator 5) Further recommendations
Description - The Project Implementation Plan is a master plan that summarizes all components needed to successfully implement the project in its entirety. It is intended to serve as a reference tool for all BAMB partners throughout the duration of the project. Presented as a pdf, the document contains the following key sections: Project Overview Project goal List of work packages and lead beneficiaries List of deliverables Summary of project effort in person-months Management bodies and project teams – This section will clearly define the roles, responsibilities, structure and procedures for the various internal and external management bodies and project teams. It will also identify all known participants of the internal management bodies (Project Steering Group, Project Coordination Team, Communication Team). These bodies and teams include: Project Steering Group Project Coordination Team Communication Team Industrial and Dissemination Board (Stakeholder Network) Events and collaborative working – This section will clearly identify the processes and tools to facilitate collaboration amongst partners as part of work package activities, management bodies, and as participants in external events where BAMB is to be presented. Teleconferencing WHTSON platform Project planning and budget – This section will provide an updated detailed budget that corresponds to the revised BAMB work plan. Administration and reporting guidelines –This section will provide an overview of both the internal procedures for monitoring and reporting specific to the BAMB project and the EC requirements to be taken into account for periodic reporting. Risk assessment and quality insurance will be given particular emphasis, and will be further enhance by the Risk Management Plan and the Reporting and Monitoring Plan to be found in the Annexes. Periodic reports (EC requirement) Continuous reporting internal to the BAMB project Financial administration, monitoring and reporting – The section will provide references to the Annotated Grant Agreement regarding financial issues and reporting requirements. External communication – This section will provide a general overview of elements for consideration when communicating about BAMB. It is to be complimented by the Communication Plan developed in WP6. Key Annexes: Legal basis for the BAMB Project Logical Framework for the BAMB project – A planning and management tool in the form of a table, which summarizes the key components of the project in a logical and structured manner in order to provide a clear and concise overview of the project in its entirety. The calendar elements of the framework will be further detailed in the Activities Schedule provided in the Annexes. Included in the Logical Framework table: • Objectives • Outputs (Deliverables) • Description of outputs • Tasks • Sub-tasks • Responsible partners • Completion dates • Verification criteria • Means of verification • Risks and assumptions Reporting templates Model timesheets Partner contact information Activities schedule - a series of Gantt Charts illustrating the start and finish dates of tasks, completion dates for Deliverables and Milestones, and key periods of reporting. The Gantt Charts are meant to provide an overview of the project calendar and the status of progress. This will facilitate monitoring and project coordination. Elements to be included in the Charts include: • overall WP calendar (start and end dates), • task calendars (start and end dates), • workshops and/or events necessary to complete a task or deliverable, • deliverable and milestone completion dates, • necessary work days, • percentage of work completed, • responsible parties for WP/Action/Task/Deliverable, and an indication line for the current calendar day • interaction between WP/Action/Task/Deliverables
Based on topic specific state-of-the-art reports an overview will be given of currently known opportunities and barriers for uptake of Materials Passports and Reversible Building Design within the vested system. These state-of-the-art reports will investigate the main technical, economic, financial, environmental, legal, spatial and logistic drivers/causes for every known (type of) actor within the current value chain. Focussing on the European context, and more specifically the countries involved within the BAMB project, the following topics will be investigated (by the following partners ): - value chain at building product level (EPEA and IBM) - value chain at building level (IBM and VITO) - availability of information between actors along the value chain, with a specific point of concern related to the applicability of building information modelling (BIM) within the current building practice in EU (i.e. review of BIM standardisation within EU and review of EU and International BIM related systems and plug-ins related to sustainability) (BRE) - identification of commonly used methods to refurbish and maintain buildings for major construction types (VUB, UTwente and SGDF) - elaboration on the cause of demolition of buildings and major maintenance needs of buildings: (VUB, UTwente and SGDF) - estimation of the availability, composition, amount and quality of C&D Waste in the EU (VUB, UTwente and SGDF) - estimation of re-use potential of buildings, components and materials within the existing buildings stock (VUB, UTwente and SGDF) - identification of existing (niche) solutions/applications/strategies, key actors and barriers to accelerate the reuse of: o residues as material resources (not necessarily for building products) (EPEA) o (generic) components applicable for different buildings (VUB, UTwente and SGDF) o trans-functional buildings (VUB, UTwente, and IBM) - identification of existing initiatives and regulations impeding or supporting reuse of materials, components and buildings (Brussels Environment, BRE and VITO) - identification of existing financial and business models impeding or supporting reuse of resources, materials, components and buildings (IBM) All identified key actors within the vested system will be represented through a network diagram – currently characterised by a governing linear value chain – and linked to key opportunities and barriers. The aim of this network diagram is to visualise possible system failures and gains at a single glance – as much as possible supported by facts and figures. The definite visualisation will be decided through stakeholder consultation. The synthesis report will be submitted as a written document in PDF form. This information will predominantly include a summary of the state-of-the-art reports and some testimonies of key actors. However, the crude state-of-the-art reports are not to be understood as part of the final deliverable, but these supporting documents can be made available to the European Commission.
Description: For 4 pilots the finalised construction will be submitted as a deliverable, taking into account the results and feedback from the feasibility report and the prototyping. The objectives of the pilot that were studied theoretically in the feasibility report as well as through prototyping will be applied in the building of the pilots. The construction of the pilots will demonstrate how to implement reversible design and materials passports in dynamic and circular buildings. The report on the construction of the pilots and feedback will be structured around 4 chapters, each representing the built pilot and feedback report for one pilot site. Each chapter will address: • Construction drawings: as built plans (of each transformation/relocation. • Specifications of materials: how and why to use in the construction. • Technical specifications and details that provide information about the components which determine the reversibility and implementation of Materials Passports. • Pictures of the building activities, taken during the important phases of the project (photos that capture both the elements which determine the reversibility, waste reduction, and implementation of materials passports) • Assessment of the applied financial/economical aspects of the pilot built. • Assessment of the transformations/relocations: conclusions on the consequences on technical, architectural, economical, comfort… level. Conclusions on the ease of use, needed time and logistical implications. Feedback report on the pilots built concerning the lessons learned, analysis of the process, feedback to WP2-WP3-WP5
Description: Based on the feasibility report, components of the construction will be selected to be designed and developed for prototyping. The frameworks and tools investigated in the feasibility report concerning Material Passports and reversible design will be tested. After testing, redesign and retesting will be done if needed. The prototyping and feedback report will be structured around 4 chapters, each representing the prototyping and feedback report for one pilot site. Each chapter will address: • Further development of design plans for prototyping. • Conclusions on technical preparations and used materials. • Detailed plan for manufacturing of the prototypes. • Manufacturing of the prototypes. • Assessment of the manufacturing and the redesign of the prototypes. • Manufacturing of the redesigned adjustments of the prototypes. • Feedback report on the prototyping concerning the lessons learned, analysis of the process, feedback to WP2-WP3-WP5.
Description - Updates to all Annexes and the Implementation Plan will occur on a rolling basis throughout the project, following internal monitoring and reporting periods (every 6 months). A final Updated Project Implementation Plan and Annexes, presented as a PDF, will be compiled to include all modifications as well as changes log that provides an overview of changes and/or additions made over the course of the project. A key Annex – the Risk Management Plan - is to be added to the Implementation Plan in M7. This document will address possible risks for the completion of WP/Actions/Tasks/Deliverables and establish a plan of response. Addressed in the plan: the identification of risks, their location (internal to the BAMB project or external), their probability, their impact, and measures taken to address/minimize the risks
Description: All pilots will perform a feasibility study in which the objectives of the actions regarding Material Passports and reversible building design will be studied on a theoretical level. The different scenarios and choices will be described. An analysis of all construction aspects needed to implement these objectives will be made. This study will be used as a basis for the prototyping and the construction of the pilots, since it will be developed and used as the construction dossier of the pilots. The functionality and ease of use of the developed concepts within the other Work Packages of BAMB will also be integrated and tested during the design stage: the developed framework for reversible building design, Materials Passports, and Building Level Integrated Decision Making Models, . In addition, certain innovative financial and economical concepts will be implemented based on which input can be given to the development of new business models. This will generate feedback to the other Work Packages, so they can improve their developments and research. The feasibility report will be structured around 6 chapters, each representing the feasibility report for one pilot site. Each chapter will address: • Processing and conclusions on the existing conditions: o The location o The needs o The local building industry o The stakeholders (design team, owner, industry partners) and their role in the action. • Research and monitoring of different transformation and/or relocation scenarios, of which a minimum of 2 scenarios will be fully developed, implemented and assessed. • Requirements concerning the technical, functional, and comfort aspects of the developed scenarios. Conclusion about the needs in practical use, technical engineering, architectural design… • Design plans: o Preliminary design plans o Implementation plan o Technical detailing and/or technical specifications of (part of) the construction. • Feedback report on the tools/concepts/frameworks developed in WP1, WP2, WP3 and/or WP5 tested or investigated within the pilot. This feedback will contain the ease of use, the strengths and weaknesses of the assessed tools/concepts/frameworks. Recommendations of improvements will be given
Description: An electronic report will be compiled with all openly accessible Communication and Dissemination materials in the project. Such materials will include: 3 versions of a BAMB leaflet (distributed over time) with up-to-date information about the project. 6-8 Electronic newsletters (produced every 6 months) Minimum of 5 examples of high-level publication materials (e-books or other electronic publications): An updated instructional publication regarding the creation of buildings with positive impacts A book on design strategies for reversible buildings A book on design strategies for refurbishment A book and reading materials for students presenting technical solutions for dynamic circular buildings and their applications A publication on Materials Passports best practices In addition, a catalogue will be kept of all other scientific articles published by BAMB partners in relation to the content of the project. Communication and dissemination materials for 3 high profile events and the final BAMB event Communication and dissemination materials for the design competition Communication and dissemination materials for the pilots and WPs (results, progress, interesting milestones) Catalog of press clippings, with at least 100 press clippings generated by BAMB events, results and communication.
Description: The communication plan is an important document to support the communication and dissemination of the BAMB project and its results. Presented as a pdf, the Communication Plan will address the following subjects: Target groups - The BAMB project has several interested audiences and target groups. These targets all demand different approaches and therefore the plan will include a first Target audience analysis (later to be developed with input from WP1 D1), which will specify existing target groups and what information and/or data is of interest to them? Channels - A project with several target groups needs even more media channels. Each country or region has its own specific channels, e.g. national and regional channels. Therefore, the Communication Plan will address which types of channels are best suited for communication and information, depending on purpose and target groups. Channels already identified include: Website with RSS feed Social media, Facebook and Twitter News letter Brochure/folder, BAMB leaflet Scientific articles Publications (books) Media Events (three international and a one final conference) Pilot projects Industrial & Dissemination board Internal naming of documents- The internal communication within BAMB will mainly use a system that both stores documents as well as makes them available to the numerous BAMB partners. What system will be used is not yet finalized and will not be mentioned in the Communication Plan. The plan will however make recommendations for a common structure for filing and naming documents – recommendations on how to name folders, files and versions of these, to ensure a logical overview and easy access for anyone using the system. Tone of voice Content and tone of voice- A story line will be developed for cohesive communication about the project, and ready to use texts will be developed to support easy and effective communication about BAMB. • A text describing the BAMB project – when the available room is one line of text. • A text describing the BAMB project – when the available room is three lines of text. • A text describing the BAMB project – when the available room is half a page of text. Press release guidelines- A guide to prioritize which news to release, and a description of tone of voice. Guidelines will be supplied regarding how a press release should be structured, outlined, and delivered to obtain the largest possible reach. Internal and external communication (priority, responsibilities and work process)- Since BAMB is a large and complex project with many participants in several work packages working from different countries, there will be a large amount of information to be communicated. To maximize the reach of BAMB’s communication efforts with regard to the resources at hand, the Communication Plan will contain guidelines for: Prioritized communication – an overview of the prioritized information to communicate, as a part of the dissemination of the generated information – marketing the project and the further development of BAMB. Responsibilities – an overview of the responsibilities of partners regarding communication. Work process – the internal process for BAMB partners when information is to be produced and released. Dissemination - BAMB will generate a great number of results to be communicated during the three years the project will run. The results will be produced by the work packages, often several working together. The Communication Plan therefore will contain a summary of the: Planned results • An overview of all planned results (on the level of deliverables) to be disseminated • An overview of what is not to be disseminated (on the level of deliverables) Areas of responsibility – which work package is responsible for which result Work process – the internal process of BAMB when a result is to be disseminated The Communication Plan will also contain the following Annexes: • Annex 1
The transition towards a circular and dynamic built environment will require several systemic changes, boosting opportunities and eliminating barriers – often going beyond technical innovation and altering the current building value chains. Materials Passports and Reversible Design Protocols are already defined as important systemic tools in order to start this transition. The Blueprint will be used as a guide for front runners and key actors within the defined building value chain (including policy makers) to implement these systemic tools, focussing on the European context and more specifically the countries involved in the BAMB project. This is done by listing separately short-term actions and long-term activities that would enable the transition, such as disruptive interventions and supporting slow evolutions. Each of the listed actions will be linked to the opportunities and barriers defined within deliverable D1 and suggestions will be given on how to initiate them and which actor(s) need to be involved. Missing actors will be clearly identified. Initially, the Blueprint of the desired system configurations will be represented in an interactive and visual way through a private part of the BAMB website. At the project’s end, the objective is for the private content, for which there is consensus, to be brought to the public sections of the website. Each of the listed actions within the Blueprint will be linked as much as possible with one or more (new or existing) actors/front runners within a desired network configuration – characterised by a circular value chain. The aim of this network diagram is to visualise possible system gains and identify links/actors currently missing in the vested system at a single glance. Background information will be made available through the same web page or links. This information will predominantly include the outcome of the co-creation sessions – involving all BAMB partners – on the BAMB transition framework. However, the outcomes of the co-creation sessions are not to be understood as part of the deliverable.
Description: Central to communication in BAMB is an external project website and corresponding social media. The external website and its structure will build on the Communication Plan, where target groups, tone of voice and results to be disseminated will be defined. The project website will contain up-to-date information about the project relevant to the defined target groups, and all openly accessible project results, communication and dissemination publications will be available through the website. All partners will be involved in content development. In addition, events where BAMB is to be presented will be promoted on the website. The website will be freely accessible in English by month 6 of the project, and it will be available but not maintained for at least 2 years after the end of the project, after which time it will be archived in accordance to regulations. Concerning social media, the project website will have a RSS and Twitter-feed and will be connected to a corresponding Facebook page. Twitter and Facebook will be used according to the guidelines found in the Communication Plan.
Based on reflexive monitoring of pilot cases, the analysis of the vested system and the Blueprint will be refined. This means that deliverables D1 and D2 will be updated with new insights and in particular new opportunities for a systemic change. Important lessons learned during the reflexive monitoring actions will be listed. This will include the identification of often encountered systemic barriers – such as legal limitations, financial constraints, shortage in supply of adequate solutions – and practical ways to bypass them. Like D1 and D2, D3 will be delivered as a part of a web page. Non-confidential lessons may be added to the web page(s) as background information. The crude outcome of the reflexive monitoring activities is not to be understood as part of the deliverable that will be shared online, but the supporting documents from these activities can be made available to the European Commission.
Updates to the Data Management Plan will occur on a rolling basis throughout the project, following internal monitoring and reporting periods (every 6 months). A final Updated Data Management Plan, presented as a PDF, will be compiled to include all modifications as well as a changes log that provides an overview of changes and/or additions made over the course of the project.
