The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and the House of Training organized a training on the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) for energy efficiency in building, on 12 October 2018 in Luxembourg. During this day, 14 trainees – mainly architects and engineers – have been introduced to the uses one can expect from BIM in relation with energy simulation.

The requirements for the energy efficiency of buildings are becoming more stringent. Early in the design process, they require designers to perform dynamic thermal simulations to measure the impact of their choices. The use of BIM in this context makes it easier to simulate and better coordinate the activities of different actors. Through specific examples, this training addressed the link between BIM and the energy efficiency of buildings.  Donia Marzougui, French project's partner, discussed first on BIM and energy simulation on the basis of results developed within BIMEET project funded by the European Commission's Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME).

Then Marie-Sophie COLLARD talked about the building energy regulations in Luxembourg. The use of BIM to ensure energy efficiency in accordance with Luxembourg regulations was addressed. The session closed with feedback from a local architect: Charlie Boon-Bellinaso reported on the use of such tools in his own architecture practice.

The coordinator of BIMEET Dr (Arch) Sylvain Kubicki was interviewed

by the Luzxembourg NeoMag 17/2018 in September about the potentials of BIM in energy-efficient building.

 

 

BIMEET member Donia Marzougui Labonne

– Expert in energy-efficient building and BIM - from INES (http://www.ines-solaire.org/) was interviewed about BIM and energy-efficiency for «techniques de l’ingénieur»:

BIMEET participated in the 17th International Conference on computing in Civil and Building Engineering (ICCCBE)

in Tampere 5-7 June 2018 together with participants from 33 countries. Päivi Jäväjä presented an overview of the BIMEET project and introduced use cases that especially will need a description of skills related to BIM and energy-efficiency.

 

BIM training to enhance energy efficiency of buildings

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology is coordinating BIMEET, a new European project bringing together 9 partners around BIM technology as a key digital support for the energy efficiency of the built environment.

On 13 and 14 September 2017, the official launch of the BIMEET "BIM-based EU-wide Standardized Qualification Framework for achieving Energy Efficiency Training" project was held at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). Focusing on qualifications and training in BIM (Building Information Modelling), the project is funded by Horizon 2020, the European framework programme for research and innovation. Running for two years, this initiative brings together nine partners from the UK, France, Finland, Greece and Luxembourg, and numerous European experts.
