Passive House design
and BIM

To allow data transfer from BIM models into tools for energy balance calculation and efficiency design such as the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP), Passive House Institute has developed an interface, the so called bim2PH concept.

Energy Efficiency Quality Checks

Based on the results of our workshops across Europe, we have developed user, self-inspection and quality check requirements and defined an assessment methodology for the energy performance gap.

Thermal Imaging

We developed alternative methods to measure thermal parameters of buildings and suggest precise, fast and cheaper methods which might be helpful in the future.

Demo sites in Italy
Point clouds and BIM comparison

R2M tested their technology at a demo site in Milan. The scope concerns two kinds of assessments:

  • Monitoring the work progress of the refurbishment of a dwelling;
  • Compare the implemented changes with those proposed during the design phase.

Methodology for quality checks for energy efficient buildings
– sensor-embedded construction elements for continous self-inspection

This paper by National University of Ireland Galway presents the methodology  for  the  use  of  sensor-embedded  construction  elements  for  continuous  self-inspection  and  quality  checks  in energy  efficient  buildings.  Those  prototype  smart  building  components  are  designed, tested and linked to models that predict performance and enable continuous product life cycle quality checks.
