Malko Tarnovo, Bulgaria

Malko Tarnovo, Bulgaria

​The three-storey municipal dormitory was constructed in 1982 in the town of Malko Tarnovo, Bulgaria. The building was constructed with industrialized prefabricated method.  Nowadays  it is occupied mainly by the workers of the municipality and high school students. An old paper as-built documentation is available. During the BIM-SPEED project will be demonstrated new tools supporting the as-built data acquisition, the energy behaviour of the building, and will be approached new solutions for exterior renovation of buildings with façade's walls by prefabricated elements by reinforced concrete. 

 

Varna, Bulgaria

Varna, Bulgaria

​This two-storey emblematic historical residential building was constructed in 1915 in the city of Varna, Bulgaria. On its ground floor there are shops, an art studio and a bookstore. The external walls are made from bricks and are not insulated. There is no a heating and cooling system except local electrical heaters on the residential floor and local air-conditioning units on the ground floor. The building is under cultural heritage protection.  Partial old paper documentation from 1912 is available. During the BIM-SPEED project will be demonstrated new tools supporting the as-built data acquisition, the energy behaviour of the building, and will be approached energy saving solutions especially for cultural heritage buildings with very ornamented façades.  

 

Frigento, Italy

Frigento, Italy

​This two-storey historic residential building was built in 1700 in Frigento, Italy. The last building renovation activities were performed in 1980 year. The external walls are constructed of solid masonry with no insulation layer. It is situated in the seismic area. The building is also under cultural heritage protection what results limitation of the renovation scenarios. Old paper design, energy audit and laser scanning with 3D photogrammetry of the building envelope is available.  During the BIM-SPEED project new tools supporting the as-built data acquisition, design and energy simulation for buildings under cultural heritage protection will be tested.

 

Gdynia, Poland

Gdynia, Poland

It is a duplex (two-family) dwellings constructed in 1961 and located in Gdynia, in the North of Poland. The building has three stories. External walls are made from full brick and have a thickness of 56cm, the building is partially insulated with expanded polystyrene. It is connected to the natural gas and the heating system is based on the gas boiler. The reasons for the renovation are: very low building condition, the age of the building, low energy performance and the need to rearrange and enlarge the usable area. As-built 2D drawings and  BIM model are available for the building. During the BIM-SPEED project new tools supporting the design and energy simulation will be tested.

 


 

Warsaw I, Poland

Warsaw , Poland

​This multi-storey and multi-family apartment block was built in 1978 in Warsaw, Poland. It has twelve stories and was constructed with the industrialized prefabricated method. This type of construction is considered typical for East and Middle Europe (Germany, Poland, Czech-Republic, Slovakia, etc.). Building is connected to district heating system, which is covering space heating and heat for domestic hot water preparation. This building was a virtual demonstrator  in the Renovates project funded under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 680603). The project developed a holistic systemic deep renovation concept using smart services and smart energy-based communities resulting in energy-neutral housing – up to and beyond Zero Net Energy – by reducing energy consumption and maximizing the use of renewable energy. Within Renovates project as-built BIM model, thermal scan and Virtual reality model were developed.  Also the possibility of the implementation of Combined Heat and Power reciprocating engines driven by natural gas units and Photovoltaic  solar panels was studied.  During the BIM-SPEED project new tools supporting design and energy simulation will be tested. Additionally, 3D Scan-to-BIM (Revit Plug-in) will be tested in terms of creating a structure model based on a point cloud.

 

Barland, Romania​

Barland, Romania

This multi-storey dwellings were built in 1967 in Barlan, Romania. The entire building is use for residential purpose. It has five stories, the external walls are made of 25cm bricks and are partially insulated. The building is situated in the seismic area. The building gone through all the major earthquakes in Romania (1977 – 7.2 , 1986 - 7, 1990 – 6.7 Richter scale), it presents cracks, partial thermal insulated. The heating system and domestic hot water is mainly based on gas boilers.  Old paper as-built  documentation is available for the building. During the BIM-SPEED project new tools supporting the as-built data acquisition, design and energy simulation will be tested. 


 

Victoria-Gasteiz

Victoria-Gasteiz, Spain

The two buildings were built in 1958. They are located in the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz, in the North of Spain. First demonstration site is a four storeys residential building with eight flats, with a garage and a bar in the ground floor. The building form is U in Shape.  The external walls are made from double layer of brick with an air-camera in between, cavity-wall. The second demonstration site is a 5 storeys residential building with 12 flats, with an storage room and a bar in the ground floor. The building form is H in Shape.  Most of the main external walls are made from double layer of brick an air-camera in between, cavity-wall. Others just are composed of a simple layer of brick without any air-camera. Both buildings are not insulated and have poor energy performance with condensation and humidity problems. 
 
The buildings are part of Lighthouse demonstrators in a SmartEnCity project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 691883). It aims to develop a systemic approach for transforming European cities into sustainable, smart and resource-efficient urban environments in Europe. The renovation activities within SmartEnCity project will contain insulation of the building envelope with focus on façades and roof and connecting the dwellings to a new District Heating system  based on biomass energy. During BIM-SPEED project new tools and solutions supporting as-built data acquisition, designing, energy simulation and construction works will be implemented.
