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
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)

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.

BIM-based model checking is an excellent demonstration of capturing knowledge about buildings while dealing with real-world data that can be partial and incomplete. How do we interpret qualitative terms such as “easy to see”, “well illuminated”, and “direct access”? How do we manage disparate building codes w.r.t large-scale building models that undergo continuous updates? Can we identify a common vocabulary to describe concerns, priorities, and rationales when designing buidings for people?

This workshop addresses these questions from both theoretical and practical perspectives and investigates the challenges and opportunities in enabling complete code checking applications for processes such as compliance audit and digital building permit approval. We do not advocate a single methodology but invite practitioners and researchers to discuss the hidden caveats and bottlenecks of current approaches, and to discover and build momentum for common points of interest.

This workshop is the first of a series of planned events destined to the future of automation in the AEC industry. One of the expected outcomes is to establish a research community and to follow up results from these workshops.  We look forward to seeing you!

Target Public
  • Scientific community (incl. conference attendees)
  • Governmental agencies
  • Software companies
Topics
  • Automated building code compliance assessment
  • Interpretation of performance-based building requirements
  • Initiation of new research projects
