A Proposed Material Passport Ontology to Enable Circularity for Industrialized Construction

Firehiwot Kedir, David F. Bucher, Daniel M. Hall

There is a need to collect, store, and share product data to enable circularity in industrialized construction supply chains. To do this, the concept of a Material Passport (MP) has been proposed, but exactly how MPs should be created and managed is less understood, especially in consideration of industrialized construction product platforms. This paper proposes a knowledge and process representation framework called the Material Passport Ontology (MPO). The MPO outlines key components of MPs and their interrelationships. Finally, the paper discusses several implementation challenges and possibilities.

In construction tendering, the ability to successfully manage and capitalize technical knowledge is a competitive advantage for a general contractor. In this context, we present Con-Tend, a flexible, high-level ontology conceived to formalize information and knowledge produced in projects and tenders and make it reusable during tendering processes. The Con-Tend ontology is under development from a general contractor perspective and shows how linked data approaches can ensure homogenous, computable knowledge bases for powerful, data-driven strategies by a general contractor.
