Pilots

PILOT SITES

We will provide demonstrations in 2 new buildings and 2 renovation residential buildings in Finland, Austria, Italy, and the Netherlands.

By integrating the platform into the operations of SME contractors, large construction firms, and end-users, we will be able to accurately evaluate performance, obtain real-time feedback, and powerful exploitation.

Finland

PARTNERS: CAVERION, VTT

  • ERP and Building Automations.
  • NEANEX App to connect with the ERP.
  • VCMP Suite for IDDS design and construction.
  • BIMbots in the BIM Server.
  • HTML App from VTT will help in IDSS VRM IoT App.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

  • The pilot will run in parallel with actual HVAC renovation or energy upgrade.
  • The actual site will be selected from a typical block of flats that were built in the 1970s or ’80s among the buildings that are connected with Caverion’s 24/7 monitoring system.
  • Those buildings are typically made from concrete elements, connected with the district heating system and they include a basic level of technics only.
  • Flat Size: 30 m² or more.

OBJECTIVES

  • Promote new BIM-based methodologies to control energy consumption as well as the indoor climate in existing residential buildings.
  • Economic evaluation energy cost reduction. The special focus is on the ESCO type of projects.
  • Demonstrate simplified information collection from existing residential buildings and use that information as input for BIM.
  • Enable BIM-based energy analysis for residential renovation projects.
  • To combine BIM with ERP system and especially with SAP to provide useful BIM connected data for the whole lifecycle of the building.

Austria

PARTNERS: CREE BY RHOMBERG
  • Focus on extensive use of sustainability.
  • Decision support tool development.
  • VRM IoT / NEANEX App.
  • Cloud BEMS.
  • HTM adoption.
  • SIL smart tendering.

DESCRIPTION

  • New residential building in prefabricated timber-hybrid construction.
  • High-quality in terms of energy standard.
  • Fully networked building with one central control hub Aladin.
  • Short construction time.
  • 1.300 m² living area. 5 floors. 18 flats.

OBJECTIVES

  • A systematic approach in construction to achieve faster, easier, and more efficient results.
  • Modular technology, with standard procedure and cost-efficient prefabrication methods.
  • Systemized building components build the basis for BIM-based methodologies.
  • Systematic and integrated planning, lean coordination structures, the consideration of lifecycles and connected devices.
  • Sustainable building with a reduced carbon footprint compared to conventional building techniques.

Italy

PARTNERS: DE5
  • Multi-dwelling retrofitting.
  • H&C and renewables use case.
  • Advanced use of BIM.
  • BIMBots.
  • VRM IoT / NEANEX App.
  • Cloud BEMS.
  • Smart tendering for retrofitting.

DESCRIPTION

  • The demo site is located in Vasto (Abruzzo region) is under construction.
  • A residential building with 2 underground floors and 4 above-ground floors.
  • The actual single housing block contains 11 apartments and 20 garages. The future housing block after the refurbishment operation will contain 17 apartments and 18 garages.
  • The dwelling is made of a reinforced concrete frame with reinforced concrete and hollow titles mixed floor.

OBJECTIVES

  • Promote new BIM-based methodologies.
  • Reduce construction time and costs of at least 15% compared to the current situation.
  • Improve integration of the design, manufacturing, construction, and maintenance operations in every stage of the buildings’ lifecycle.
  • Control and reduce the gap between predicted and real energy consumption in a residential building

Netherlands

PARTNERS: TNO

  • NEANEX App.
  • BlockChain App to sign smart contracts.
  • BIMBots.
  • Cloud EIRs.
  • HVAC, Roof, floor & façade elements.
  • Ekodenge App for KPIs.
  • VCMP VRM IoT.
  • Enerit BEMS.
  • Big data analytics algorithms.

DESCRIPTION

  • Energy neutral new row dwelling, including the energy used by household appliances.
  • HVAC: heat pump, heat recovery ventilation system, PV system.
  • Insulation: very high due to a very airtight building envelope.
  • The actual site will be a new housing project in the Netherlands.
  • The dwelling will be built with concrete elements and prefabricated installations, roof, and façade.
OBJECTIVES
  • Smart tendering of prefabricated modular building and installation systems directly to manufacturers, reducing costs and construction time by 15% as well as construction mistakes.
  • Economic evaluation energy cost reduction. Special focus is on performance guarantee.
  • Realizing BIMBOTS facilitating modular construction elements.
  • Validating self-learning BIMBOTS for energy demand prediction, IEQ analyses.
