eeEmbedded (Collaborative Holistic Design Laboratory and Methodology for energy-efficient Embedded Buildings) is a research project funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union. Its work plan covers a 4-year period which started in October 2013

The aim of the project is to develop an ICT based intelligent design methodology for energy efficient buildings optimally embedded in their neighbourhood as well as the ICT platform ‘intelligent virtual engineering lab (iVEL)’ to support architects, engineers, facility managers and decision makers in their tasks. For that purpose, eeEmbedded makes use of existing advanced ICT tools, provide them with an interoperability structure and complement them with a set of new supporting services and tools for process support, information management and decision-making.

eeEmbedded main results includes: i) a holistic design methodology, ii) a collaborative holistic design platform, iii) an Energy System Information Model (ESIM), iv) an ontology-based open interoperability system, v) a multi-model information management method and related management services and vi) a knowledge management system.

The workshop will show the achieved eeEmbedded results up to date in two sessions: First session on Wednesday 1st of June from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and second session on Thursday 2nd of June from 11 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Project website: www.eeembedded.eu

Specifically, the workshop will present:

- Overview of the project including the Key Points Methodology for BIM based design

- The intelligent Virtual Engineering Lab: Platform architecture and interactive exhibitions of the tools that are already integrated (Multi Model Navigator, Scenario Manager and Multi-criteria decision making tool)

W098 Workshop Intelligent and Responsive Buildings, Meeting
Time:  13.30-15.00, 17.00-18.00
Location: Sonaatti 2
Contact: Derek Clements-Croome, d.j.clements-croome@reading.ac.uk
Program here

This workshop will cover a number of important issues in the design and management of intelligent buildings and cities.´No longer is it sufficient to design for function alone. Buildings need to give the occupants a healthy well-being experience but at the same time be economical in the use of resources. The internal environment affects health and well-being and the increased degree of personalisation offered by wearable technologies will be highlighted. The urban environment too is important as we realise to be disconnected with Nature is stressful. Some parts of world have particular problems such as very highly populated cities where high rise buildings are a necessity but these can be designed to have vertical green space.The workshop will give short introductions to these aspects to initiate debate among participants.

W117 Special Workshop - Performance Measurement in Construction
Delivery of Services and the Contracting Model of the Future
Time:  15.30-17.00
Location: Sonaatti 1
Contact: Dean Kashiwagi, Dean.Kashiwagi@asu.edu

A New Approach to Delivering Services that minimizes transactions by 50%, increases value and quality, minimizes project cost, and maximizes vendor profits with increases as much as 100%. These concepts were tested in Netherlands, Canada, Botswana, Malaysia, Finland and the United States as well as being introduced in Poland, Switzerland, Hungary, Norway, India, Mexico and South America. The model is based on 1,850+ tests with a 95% customer satisfaction rate and less than 1% vendor caused time and cost deviations. The process increases the competitiveness of high performing vendors and assists marginal contractors to improve their performance. Join us in learn how to deliver services without using the contract to enforce performance. Please find more information here
