AUTOMATION aims to create a Digital Twin and Optimization System Architecture that not only allows accurate and immediate monitoring and control over ongoing construction tasks using any handheld device but also provides the user with several alternatives for the optimal distribution of resources over the course of a construction project.
Virtual and augmented reality has been progressively used in every industry and have great potential in the AEC industry. At BUILTCoLAB, we aim to develop several innovative solutions to support collaborative digital design, virtual construction and augmented management of the built environment.
The SMILE project aims to develop a digital environment to manage buildings’ data, connected to BIM and IoT. This digital environment will integrate an intelligence engine to optimize buildings operation, exploration and management.
Building Logbooks are information models of buildings, which improve access to information for Facilities Managers (FMs) or others responsible for managing buildings, enabling them to improve the operation of their building. Specifically, they provide a place to record ongoing building energy performance, which should help improve energy efficiency.
To promote innovation in less developed regions, which is one of the national strategic priorities, the BUILTcolab will analyse the creation of an IIG focused on Alentejo. Several financing programs can support the creation of such an initiative, which should focus on training and digital modelling and simulation.
