In at least five finalizing European H2020 research projects** focusing on digitization in the building industry, Linked Data technologies are actively applied to tackle well-known interoperability challenges in the sector. Naturally, this resulted in the creation of a series of technical deliverables (ontologies, data modelling patterns constraints, processes, tools, etc) with both similarities and differences between the different ongoing projects. During the workshop, each of the five projects will share their technical insights on the subject through short technical presentations. The audience might expect to get a view on the reasons for applying Linked Data, the progress made during the project and the lessons learned. At the end of the presentations a roundtable discussion will be held between the different projects to discuss how the Linked Data related outcomes of the different projects can support each other and persist through the BDTA after the independent projects have ended.

** H2020 research projects involved in the workshop:

 
 
 
Target Public
  • Both technical and management staff from the industry and academia, with an interest in the practical application of Linked Data technologies in EU projects, focusing on digitisation in the building industry through concepts such as BIM and Building Digital Twins.
 
Topics
  • Linked Data
  • Ontologies
  • BIM
  • Building Digital Twins for the Construction and Maintenance industry
  • Buildings

 

Programme
  • Introduction
  • Presentations by each H2020 project on the application of Linked Data technology: SPHERE, BIM4EEB, BIM4REN, BIM-SPEED, BIMERR
  • Discussion between the project partners

 

Main organiser and contact
  • Eduard Loscos, President, Building Digital Twin Association

 

Registration

Target Public
  • Primary target: Design Professionals (Architects and Engineers)
  • All other scientific attendees are welcome
Topics
  • The workshop will adress the BIM workflows enabling the collaboration amongst architects and structural engineers
  • Special focus will be on the Structural Analysis Model (SAM) and the Structural Analysis Format (SAF) enabling interoperability and automation amongst Architectural BIM and Structural BIM environments.
  • SAM/SAF aims at optimized coordination, automation of models' transformations, bi-directional information communication
  • The practical demonstrations will rely on Archicad and SCIA
Programme
  • Presentation from Graphisoft on the SAM/SAF challenges and technological implementation
  • Live demo of SAM/SAF with ArchiCAD & SCIA
  • Questions and answers
Main organiser and contact
  • Marc-Edouard CRASSAERTS, Managing Director, MODENA Group

Background information on SAM/SAF

SAF is an initiative from the Nemetschek Group to improve the collaboration between structural engineers by developing an open exchange format for exchanging data between structural analysis software based on the Excel format. It is focusing on a practical, easy to use, format that can be used in daily practice by structural engineers. It is meant as an open format and we look forward to you joining this initiative.

The structural analysis software participating in this initiative today are:

SCIA, Graphisoft, Allplan, RISA, FRILO, Strusoft, Axis VM, Dlubal, Sofistik, SCAD, LIRA land, Radimpex and IDEA StatiCa.

Energy-efficient renovation is well-known to be a milestone in reaching the Paris agreement, and reduce the CO2 emissions in Europe. Amongst the different existing options that can ensure a higher productivity rate for construction companies, commercializing digital tools and in particular BIM-based tools is clearly identified as a high-potential lever.

The workshop ‘Challenges and Solutions for a BIM-based energy efficient renovation’ will be the opportunity to gather the 4 H2020-funded projects that are doing some research and development on this topic, through the H2020-NMBP-EEB-2018 call.

The workshop will be dedicated to ‘scientific’/’technical’ presentation of specific topics that the different sister projects share (this excludes commercial demonstrations and generic presentation of the projects).

The workshop will be chaired by Frédéric Grand (technical director buildingSmart France). One of the goals of the workshop will be to try to identify common or similar efforts taken by the different projects and to create synergies to push for common standards that will help the AEC community adopting BIM for energy-efficient renovation operations.

 

Target Public
  • Scientific audience
  • People interested in pushing for standards on BIM and renovation projects
Topics
  • BIM models/schemas for energy-efficient renovation
  • Modeling/managing renovation scenarios in a BIM project 
  • Digitization of existing buildings for an energy-efficient renovation purpose
  • Thermal evaluation in a BIM projects
  • Reusing vocabularies to model renovation project
  • Interoperable microservices [for renovation-scenarios using open standards]
  • Requirements and Roadmap for future standardization in the building sector in Europe.
  • Use cases and end-user stories from the field
  • Digital Process in Renovation
Programme
  • Introduction
  • Project presentation (i): BIM4Ren, BIM-SPEED, BIMERR
  • Break / discussions
  • Project presentation (i): BIM4EEB, Encore
  • Conclusions and discussions
Main organiser and contact
  • Pierre BOURREAU, IT Project Manager & BIM4Ren co-coordinator, Nobatek/INEF4
Registration
  • Included in the conference registration fee (you can use one-day registration if you wish to attend only the workshop and the other events on a single day)
