Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval from BIM Models for Management and Decision-Making

Project analyses processes in the field of design, construction and operation of buildings for the purpose of their optimisation by implementing informational modelling of buildings. Building information modelling is nowadays offering wide range of utilization possibilities to participants of building processes as well to facility management subjects. Nevertheless the overall efficiency of creation, sharing, processing and utilization of data from building information models including GIS data is not solved adequately in the matter of R&D due to actual industry demand, or activities are marginal. The aim of project is the analysis and the design, realisation and operation processes optimization. This is due to efficiency improvements of BIM data implementation within mentioned processes. Namely, it is about improvement of efficiency with BIM, furthermore about the semi-automatization of processes processing the BIM data, furthermore, the problematics of passive sensors for airspace monitoring data processing including fusion of these data with GIS data will be examined for the purpose of urban areas monitoring.

Process Modeling and Processing of Big Data for Support of Building Industry and Sustainable Building

The goal of this project is a proposal of methods of process modelling in the building industry, for planning in the building industry and during the life cycle of buildings and research of possibilities of utilization, analysis and data processing of new data sources, that are social networks and data warehouses managed by public administration, that can be used for information support during decision making in these processes. The method of process modelling in the building industry must take into consideration its specificity. The requirement of consistent and exact methods of process modelling, that would enable to represent structure of processes, data outputs of individual phases of process, need of data for particular activities and show responsibility of each profession or person for activities execution and its outcomes is especially justified at the present, when resolved processes often exceed not only design of building, but also life cycle of building and as a result data of these processes have impact on building of Smart Cities and sustainable building. The data from new data sources can be used for support of these processes, e. g. social networks and data warehouses managed by public administration, whose advantages are in decreased costs for obtaining of data of them, actual content and continuous accessibility and as its result gathering and analysis of this data can take place in the real time.

Dynamic Models for the Building Stock Management

The project goal is the design of the dynamic model for the assessment of the building stock parameters changes in the Czech Republic. The calculated parameters describe the energy consumption in the existing building stock. The solution is based on the system dynamics methodology that is the suitable tool for the complex problem solution in the technical-economic systems. The designed model can be used for strategy decision making concerning building energy consumption decreasing. It makes possible to test different strategies in the virtual world before implementation. The prediction of the future development on the basis of the dynamic model helps to improve decision making processes in the state institutions as well as it helps building owners.
