Multicriteria decision making tool

The multicriteria decision-making methodology and tool assist the selection of a suitable renovation alternative considering the inputs of all involved in the decision-making process. In the tool, you can establish the assessment criteria for all proposed alternatives, collect the preferences from all involved in the decision process regarding all criteria proposed. The result is a ranking showing the alternatives according to their performance in relation to the preferences collected.

The tool can be used by owners, housing companies, investors, architects, engineers, contractors, building managers, municipalities, and funding institutions.

This tool can be used throughout all the project stages, but it is better suited for the Design renovation and Performance analysis phase.

Methods for surveying and diagnostic of HVAC systems in existing buildings

The methodology contributes to the identification of the technologies that can be used to collect data related to HVAC systems and developed an image recognition algorithm to show the possibility of using such technology in identifying visible components of HVAC systems. Two Dynamo scripts were developed to assist modellers in checking if equipment and valves, part of the HVAC system, are placed correctly.

The methodology can be used by Engineers and BIM modellers.

This tool is better suited for the Collection of existing building data phase.

Watch the video and learn more about the methodology.
