An Application of the PROV-O Vocabulary to Building Energy Performance Simulation

Like many technological advances, Building Energy Performance Simulation (BEPS) tools face barriers to their adaptation. Stakeholders must be able to trust results - building owners want to know how the results will benefit them, while companies require a return in investment through the use of such tools. Furthermore, engineers using such systems should be able to examine their use over time to tune their accuracy. Provenance systems seek to capture information that can be used to fulfil these goals. An application of the W3C PROV-O vocabulary and an interface to facilitate recording of typical BEPS processes is described.



11:20am - 11:40am

A CLOUD IFC-BASED BIM PLATFORM FOR BUILDING ENERGY PERFORMANCE SIMULATION

Kyriakos Katsigarakis, Georgios Nektarios Lilis, Dimitrios Rovas

University College London, UK

The BIM Management Platform (BIM-MP) is a digital Building Information Model processing tool, responsible for handling BIM data that conform to the IFC standard. It provides an integrated data management solution for storing, versioning, enriching, updating and checking IFC data, which are created and modified by AEC practitioners.



11:40am - 12:00pm

ENABLING CIRCULAR CONSTRUCTION INFORMATION FLOWS USING DATA TEMPLATES – CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORKS BASED ON WASTE AUDIT ACTION

Pedro Mêda1, Eilif Hjelseth2, Diego Calvetti1, Hipólito Sousa3

The Construction Industry faces challenges to achieve the key goals of Digital transformation, Sustainability, and Waste. The problem is that these have been strategically detailed mostly in separated documents. Despite common elements, the defined roadmaps use different headings, terminology and are over-focused. This leads to gaps at several levels. Connected information flows can foster alignment and bridge the gaps.

This research provides awareness and demonstrates how Circular Construction can be built on Digital Transformation, Sustainability, and Waste, using information flow conceptualizations. The approach is made from the “digital challenge” and through Data Templates as enablers for circular information in construction.
