"Eco-Systems and Platforms for EeB Renovation" workshop

11:00 – 12:30, 29th September 2021, hybrid

This 90-minute hybrid workshop was led by BIM-SPEED project which is an acronym for “Harmonized Building Information Speedway for Energy-Efficient Renovation”. The main objective of BIM-SPEED is to push BIM for renovation projects by providing an ecosystem of interoperable tools, embedded in a cloud platform. This workshop was divided into two parts: in the first part we demonstrated our interoperable ecosystem and in the second part, we demonstrated the implementation of our tools and methods in the pilot projects, which was be followed by a discussion on the identified barriers and the lessons learnt.


‘BIM for renovation of existing residential building stock’ has been proven viable in innovative pilot projects by the members of BIM- SPEED consortium, among others in H2020 Smart Cities. The mission of BIM-SPEED is to take ‘BIM for renovation’ to a deep renovation level for at least 60% energy saving, and to accelerate the market uptake across the EU. In line with its mission, BIM- SPEED aims to enable all stakeholders to adopt BIM to reduce the time of deep renovation projects by at least 30% by providing them with: 1) an affordable BIM cloud platform, 2) a set of inter-operable BIM tools, and 3) standardized procedures for As-Built data acquisition, modelling, simulation, implementation and maintenance of renovation solutions.


BIM-SPEED relies on a trans-disciplinary approach comprising (i) process, (ii) ICT, and (iii) social innovation with a special attention to the stakeholders as a key success factor for BIM adoption. The interoperability of a full range of BIM tools for renovation will be accommodated on an innovative BIM cloud platform, which will be launched and available free-of-charge for all stakeholders immediately from the beginning of the BIM-SPEED project. BIM-SPEED will engineer the seamless integration and quick installation of building and HVAC products for renovation into the existing buildings. Such Plug-and-Play solutions are crucial for the overall time reduction. BIM-SPEED consortium represents all players in the renovation market. Throughout a 4-year project duration, BIM- SPEED will demonstrate the holistic solution in 12 real demonstration cases. An EU-wide BIM Competition will be jointly organized by the European umbrella organizations in all disciplines to kick-off the first market replication in more than 200 BIM-based renovation projects. BIM-SPEED benefits from the membership of buildingSMART standardization platform and the EU BIM Task Group to harmonize best EU practices.
