BIMERR is designing and developing a Renovation 4.0 toolkit which compromises tools to support renovation stakeholders throughout the renovation process of existing buildings, from project conception to delivery. It includes tools for the automated creation of enhanced building information models, a renovation decision support system to aid the designer in exploring available renovation options through an the accurate estimation of renovation impact on building performance as well as a process management tool that will optimize the design and on-site construction process towards optimal coordination and minimization of renovation time and cost.
Interoperability Framework (BIF):
The main scope of the BIMERR Interoperability Framework (BIF) is to ensure seamless and secure data exchange among the individual BIMERR tools and applications, in order to supply them with all the up-to-date building information they need for their operation and for which they are authorized. BIF utilizes mechanisms that enable semantic and syntactic interoperability, while enforcing access control policies to prevent any illegitimate building data exchange.
