The BIM for Energy Efficiency in the Public Sector (BEEP)

BEEP pilot actions will contribute to an open, competitive digital market for construction and will encourage wider collaboration between the public and private sectors for further collective action. The project will facilitate the wider introduction of Building Information Modelling in the public sector as a strategic enabler and the adoption of an aligned framework for its introduction into the built environment and construction sector. This alignment will accelerate growth and support competitiveness of the construction sector, especially in SMEs.

The BIM for Energy Efficiency in the Public sector (BEEP) project aims at strengthening the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) - a process supported by various tools and technologies involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places - to enhance energy efficiency in buildings. The testing of this emerging technology on built heritage will be performed to demonstrate its scalability to the entire building stock. The project will provide public administrations with a powerful method for the energy rehabilitation of public buildings to be supported with private funds through the Energy Performance Contracting. The project main outcome will be an innovative methodology based on the integration of emerging technologies tested on heritage public buildings. The results will streamline the sustainable rehabilitation process and start a virtuous circle where the money saved by public administrations in managing public assets will be used to multiply the interventions on the existing building stock.


Some of the expected achievements are:

- 2 Energy Efficiency Heritage Building Information Model – (EE-HBIM) developed

- 1 training guide for architecture, energy and construction professionals involved in the refurbishment of building

- 1 competency framework for public procurement technical officer

- 9 pilot projects for the implementation of Energy Performance Contractin

- 9 case studies on innovative energy rehabilitation interventions of historical building

- 1 Memorandum of Understanding promoting a common strategic policy for refurbishment using Building Information Modeling
