There is no one-size-fits-all renovation process
What will our tools help with?
One of the main stakes of any renovation is to characterise the initial state of the building. Some tools will allow end-users to gather such details as geometry, state of degradation, energy consumption, thermal comfort or stakeholder requirements in a quick and efficient process that can provide an adapted description of the building and information for further decision-making.
Once data is collected, construction professionals need to easily sort, classify, synchronise and secure such large amounts of information. By using extended BIM capacities, like enhanced IFC and Linked Data, BIM4REN will allow the integration and handling of this information into one single environment so that the construction value chain can work collaboratively and with increased efficiency.
Another set of BIM4Ren tools will facilitate the design process by accessing assessments models such as energy consumption evaluation, cost analysis and decision support tools that help in the selection and validation of different renovation scenarios. Our tools will include both high-end and quick’n’easy solutions to cover a whole range of needs.
A tool for every step of your renovation project.

01. Strategic Planning
02. DATA ACQUISITION
A mobile app that tracks the user inside a building, allowing him to take pictures and attached them to a BIM model.
The Utility Bill Reader automatically parses energy bills to fasten and ease the collection of relevant consumption information used in an energy audit.
Automatic creation of a geometric modelling of the environment around a selected building
Online tool for automatic BIM generation from existing architectural 2D plans thanks to Artificial Intelligence
The tool assesses the current state of the building systems by means of a fault detection and diagnostics (FDD) method.
