Project Goals

  • Definition of use-cases for improved reporting and visualization of fused data from the areas of BIM and data from building automation and building energy management (BEMS) and their validation through stakeholder feedback
  • Creation of an integrated semantic BIM4BEMS data model
  • Design of a system architecture
  • Development of a process model for the creation and maintenance of the BIM4BEMS model
  • Integration of available tools into a proof-of-concept framework prototype
  • Implementation of the data model, system architecture and process model for a test building, including a link between the data model and monitoring data from the building management system
  • Validation of the proof-of-concept framework into a test building
  • A cost-benefit analysis for optimization and improvement of the process quality regarding scalability and applicability in larger buildings and building complexes
