Second workshop BIM for healthcare

27/09/2017

​On Wednesday, September 20, 2017, the second interactive design workshop BIM of the European research project Streamer took place. The workshop was organized by Rijnstate (Arnhem) in collaboration with the consortium partners. It was a successful day with very enthusiastic reactions from the participants afterwards.​

During this workshop we shared the results of the four-year international STREAMER research into Energy Efficient Design with BIM tools. In addition, we informed participants about the resulting approach and the software tools. In doing so, opportunities were shown to save energy and costs in hospitals or care institutions, and a more effective design process was developed in the renovation and new building, thus gaining insight into international development and practical application at European level of this new knowledge.



​During the workshop, DEMO demonstrated the new functionality of our software (Life Cycle Cost calculation using BIM / IFC model, energy performance, KPI dashboard). One of the innovative tools is the Early Design Configurator (EDC), developed within the RE Suite of DEMO. The EDC creates design alternatives based on a Program of Requirements (PoR) and the so-called draft rules. These design alternatives are then compared on the basis of multiple Key Performance Indicators KPIs in the Decision Support Tool (DST). Thus, in a much earlier phase of the design process, it is possible to determine which alternative delivers the optimum energy performance to the lowest investment and what are the results on Life Cycle Costing (LCC). The participants were able to practice themselves with the tools under the guidance of our software developers.

Are you also interested in these new tools in the RE Suite? Please contact us for an explanation of all possibilities and for a demonstration.

Article of DEMO regarding build quality in practice: Private quality assurance with innovative technology

In January 1st, 2018 is expected the law regarding the quality assurance of building to enter into force . This brings great changes for all the involved Executive parties . In the new system the contractor is not only responsible for hidden defects, but also for all the defects that could occur during the delivery. Quality control during the construction phase is therefore crucial. The European research project INSITER supports the executive parties with innovative technologies to perform quality assurance in an affordable way by monitoring and detecting any faults and repair requests during the implementation process. This research is carried out by a consortium of 14 European companies and research institutions under the direction of DEMO Consultants.

                  Workshop ' built-in as-designed '

                  27/06/2016
                  INSITER is een onderzoeksproject naar intuïtieve zelfinspectie technieken voor de bouw, renovatie en onderhoud

                  At the end of June takes place in Anglet, France the Sustainable Places Conference 2016. The SP ' 16 conference is about sustainability and energy issues in a building, district and city level. DEMO offers a workshop at this Conference ' built-in as-designed ' about our EU project INSITER. INSITER is a research project concerning intuitive self-inspection and self-instruction techniques (implementing e.g. Augmented Reality) during new construction, renovation and maintenance phases. We focus on improving quality and energy performance of buildings.

                  Read more on the website of SP ' 16

                  The workshop is given by Andre van Delft and contains three parts: a short presentation of the project (key objectives, consortium, key development activities), then a presentation of the main expected exploitable results (types of results, the most important innovations, the description of the market) and finally an open discussion between the project representatives and the public, about the context of the potential applications and the presented exploitable results. In this workshop, three EU projects that are related to the this subject were presented INSITER, ACCEPT and BUILT2SPEC.

                  INSITER H2020 is a project started in 2015 on the topic of "EeB-03-2014: development of new self inspection techniques and methods for quality control for efficient building processes". INSITER focuses on the construction process itself and on how we can improve the quality by ensuring that the building "as built" suits the building "as designed".  The project investigates the possibilities of intuitive self-inspection techniqies facilitating Augmented Reality to bridge the gap between the theoritical performance and actual performance of prefabricated buildings and building parts to reduce energy consumption.
