Pilot projects of 2022
Smart completion of ICT agreements
When composing ICT agreements, practitioners tend to orient towards legal requirements rather than specific client needs. This often leads to agreements that are decoupled from project goals, which challenges the cooperation on a project.
ConTech Lab has initiated a pilot project that aims to make it easier for the client to access the ICT agreement and use it as a valuable tool in construction.
Today, operation plans are typically based on manual visual inspections, many years of experience and subjective assessments, which is a slow and imprecise process.
What if we could optimize and automate the work on operational plans by utilizing publicly available data, data from previous operation and maintenance plans, artificial intelligence and reality capture technologies? This is what this pilot project is concerned with.
Minimizing resource consumption on the construction site
In broad alliance with contractors, educational institutions and technology suppliers, ConTech Lab has initiated a project that aims to test a range of technologies and create a shared data platform for the construction industry.
The projects aims to introduce new ways of working that will help minimize the consumption of resources and materials on site – from water to power to building materials.
BIM and specifications
BIM-models revolve around the geometry of a project and is the basis for drawings, quantity extraction and coordination. However, the amount of specific product information found in the model is often limited.
Instead, these are kept in separate description documents or product data sheets, both of which are exchanged as pdf.
Across the industry, there is great potential in integrating the above and optimizing the workflow. Therefore, ConTech Lab will dive into the potential of linking BIM and specifications.
LCA calculations based on EPDs
With this pilot project, ConTech Lab and the project group will investigate what is needed to make it easier for the individual company to carry out LCA calculations on the basis of updated environmental product declarations.
Square meters as a resource
We build offices, co-working spaces and innovation houses like never before. ConTech Lab wants to investigate the future of workplaces and make the industry wiser on how square meters are used efficiently.
With this project, we take a closer look at existing office environments as well ones that are in the pipeline, including projects at BLOXHUB and the VELUX renovation project in Østbirk. For example, we will be investigating movement patterns and user needs by applying Smart Building principles.
