Holistic and Optimized Life-cycle Integrated SupporT for Energy-Efficient building design and Construction

Holistic and Optimized Life-cycle Integrated SupporT for Energy-Efficient building design and Construction

Objective

Despite recent evolutions of tools/practices in the Architecture Engineering, Construction and Facility Management have already resulted in considerable advances, some limitations remain, related to the complexity and variability of building life cycles, addressing building end user awareness and participation, lack of new business models, life cycle fragmentation, limited interoperability of the ICT supports.
The main objective of HOLISTEEC is thus to design, develop, and demonstrate a BIM-based, on-the-cloud, collaborative building design software platform, featuring advanced design support for multi-criteria building optimization. This platform will account for all physical phenomena at the building-level, while also taking into account external, neighbourhood-level influences. The design of this platform will rely on actual, field feedback and related business models / processes, while enabling building design & construction practitioners to take their practices one step forward, for enhanced flexibility, effectiveness, and competitiveness.
HOLISTEEC main assets are: (i) an innovative feedback /loop design workflow (ii) a multi-physical, multi-scale simulation engine; (iii) A unified data model for Building and Neighbourhood Digital Modeling (iv) a full-fledged open software infrastructure for building design tools interoperability leveraging available standards; (v) innovative and flexible user interfaces.
HOLISTEEC is expected to have a direct impact at a marco level on the construction sector as a whole, through the following aspects: improved overall process efficiency, improved stakeholders collaboration and conflict resolution, lifecycle cost reduction, reduction of errors and reworks. These impacts will be quantitatively evaluated during the demonstration and validation phase of the project, where the proposed design methodology and tools will be extensively applied to four real construction projects, in parallel to standard design approaches.
