Revolutionizing Europe's Building Sector with the Power of Decentralized Knowledge Graph and BIM Technology

ABOUT THE PROJECT

BUILDCHAIN will create a scalable BIM-based decentralized knowledge platform to digitally identify, register, update, and analyze massive amounts of data related to the overall life-cycle of buildings based on Origin Trail Decentralized Knowledge Graph. The BUILDCHAIN project will design and develop its own Digital Building Logbook solution for the integration of building data and knowledge, and the inclusion of new applications and functionalities dealing with integrated information, efficiency, circularity and transparency to improve the building stock, facilitate informed decision making and its validation.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

The BUILDCHAIN project aims to:

USE CASES

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: environmental footprint calculations for building materials and elements in all life stages.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: Optimized policies and rules at a system level.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: alerts and warnings when anomalies are detected.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: sensitivity ranking of the relevant climate variables and hazards, exposure ranking, likelihood of climate hazard, safety coefficients, seismic risk indexes and seismic performance classification.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: Updated material properties, identified damages in structural parts, raw vibration data, modal vibration, structural integrity model inputs.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: updated material properties and connection properties between structural elements.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: flood depth, urban flash flood index.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: Optimal sensor configuration.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: damage levels.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: estimated costs for building elements in different project stages.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: Optimized order of renovation activities, estimation of renovation works time, estimation of users’ disruption considering both the final users of the renovation works and neighbors, as well as citizens.

Type of data produced to be logged to the DBL: Sensor/actuator activation events, demand-response signals, occupant participation to demand-response events, comfort conditions and energy consumption of the building will be recorded in the DBL.
