The Building Information Modelling (BIM) tools developed so far are adapted mainly to new buildings (all types). In order to offer easy, practical, operational tools for all stakeholders, including constructing companies, designers, architects and service companies, we need to deploy attractive tool kits also for existing buildings. A particular important challenge will be to produce compatible tools that would allow collecting of data from existing buildings (e.g. geometric data) and exploit data from different sources. This will also contribute to more accurate knowledge of the existing building stock by providing methods and tools to generate data for existing buildings. Such BIM tools will be exploited first and foremost in existing residential buildings.Scope:
Proposals should develop advanced solutions, including all of the following:
Proposals submitted under this topic should include actions designed to facilitate cooperation with other projects; to enhance user involvement; and to ensure the accessibility and reusability of data produced in the course of the project.
Activities should start at TRL 4 and achieve TRL 6 at the end of the project.
The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU between EUR 5 and 7 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.Expected Impact:
Proposals should achieve all of the following:
Relevant indicators and metrics, with baseline values, should be clearly stated in the proposal.Cross-cutting Priorities:
