The ultimate goal of SPHERE’s project is the improvement and optimisation of buildings’ energy design, construction, performance, and management, reducing construction costs and their environmental impact while increasing overall energy performance. The novelty of SPHERE project is the demonstation and validation the SPHERE platform working with real new and retrofitting construction
SPHERE as a special Innovation Action assembles and integrates in a fully systematic, collaborative and integrated framework (IDDS) and corresponding Building Information Model (BIM) enabled set of tools with some diverse and complementary breakthrough Technology Rediness levels (TRL) 5-6 (Technology validated and demonstrated in relevant environment) technology assets. The demonstration activities in SPHERE will ensure that this platform, as well as the proposed tools, will finally reach TRL7 by the demonstration and validation on real residential construction and operational scenarios, both new and retrofitting The purpose of this deliverable in short is to summarise and integrate in a single document the state of development of the SPHERE project, the respect of the work plan and how far project’s objectives
and milestones have been achieved.
