BIM based fast toolkit for Efficient rEnovation in Buildings

Project description

Smart BIM based toolkit for building renovations

While information management is crucial in the architecture, engineering and construction sectors, it faces complications in the renovation sector due to complex exchanges of information and data collection. Adapting some of the technologies and methods of team collaboration currently existing in the building sector may serve to effectively increase output in the renovation industry. The EU-funded BIM4EEB project will develop an advanced toolkit based on Building Information Modelling (BIM) for renovation processes. The goal is to increase interoperability between software and participants involved in the whole chain of renovation processes. It will use smart, attractive solutions like digital logbooks and augmented reality for building retrofitting to match highest market expectations.


BIM4EEB aims to foster the renovation industry by developing an attractive and powerful BIM-based toolset able to support designers in the design and planning phase, construction companies to efficiently carry out the work and service companies to provide attractive solutions for building retrofitting. Additionally, public and private owners will be able to use a tool that eases decision making and asset management, thanks to the exploitation of augmented reality and the use of updated digital logbooks. BIM4EEB will deliver an innovative common BIM management system with linked data and a set of tools. This toolkit is the basic instrument for increasing semantic interoperability between software and stakeholders involved along the overall renovation process (design, planning, construction, performance assessment and management).
End-users of the entire renovation process will actively participate to the development phases ensuring the full matching of project deliveries with the market expectations and maximizing the value of what is produced. In particular, two public administrations and two general contractor companies will validate the toolset in a social housing setting and private residential buildings in Italy, Poland and Finland. Inhabitants will benefit by the increase of building performances, quality and comfort.
A focused market analysis will ensure effective market strategies. BIM4EEB will focus on delivering high levels of modularity between tools enabling the commercial exploitation as standalone products or services, or as part of a consolidated market offering, usable for AEC end users, consulting services or by other IT business areas if required.
The developed best practices and guidelines for BIM adoption for public administrators and private stakeholders will be the bases of extensive dissemination actions to support the wide uptake of the project results and ensuring acceptance of BIM4EEB toolset by all stakeholders.
