ENCORE

Project name: ENergy aware BIM Cloud Platform in a COst-effective Building REnovation Context - ENCORE
Project acronym: ENCORE
Dates: 01.01.2019 - 28.02.2022
Total budget: 5.562.382,50 EUR
Funding: EC Horizon 2020
Grant Agreement Number: 820434
Website: encorebim.eu

 


The main objective of ENCORE is to increase the share of renovated stock in Europe and worldwide by providing effective and affordable BIM tools that cover the whole renovation life-cycle (from data collection to project execution, and commissioning/delivery). ENCORE will also provide mechanisms for the dwellers or owners to validate the project, either on-site with Augmented/Mixed Reality solutions, or on-line. Once the project is validated, ENCORE will automatically generate the work planning for the construction works, and once finalized, ENCORE will provide continuous monitoring of the energy consumption to ensure the non-degradation of the renovation works.

Consortium general assembly

The consortium general assembly was held online on the 22nd and 23rd of February 2021.

All the members of the consortium presented their progress from our last meeting, followed by discussions about the upcomming work regarding the integration of the individual work packages.
Future steps regarding the validation and assessment of the prototype were also discussed, together with the dissemination of results and exploitation opportunities.

The 1st review meeting successfully...

On 25th September 2020 ENCORE consortium participated in the 1st review meeting that has been held on-line due to the pandemic.

The meeting went very well and based on the technical details in the deliverables and explanations provided by the consortium during the review meeting, the reviewer believes that results with high degree of exploitability are being developed in the ENCORE project. According to a periodic report, ENCORE has suffered a delay of approximately four months due to the COVID-19 crisis, therefore, some deliverables have been delayed. This is not a major drawback, but as there is a risk that the crisis might reoccur, the risk and an appropriate mitigation plan should be devised.

Successful execution of data...

LARICS main task in ENCORE is to develop Data Acquisition Service (DAS) as a part of BIM based Support Tools. DAS is considered as an External System that belongs to the Data Sources layer within the ENCORE architecture. As a part of the Data Sources layer, UAVs should autonomously collect point-clouds and photographs that will be uploaded into the Data Capture layer for off-line processing in the ENCORE Engine.

DAS validation in Gazebo simulator has been successfuly completed, followed by experiments in real environment at the University campus Borongaj.

Project ENCORE Kick-off meeting

Our team's representatives, Matko and Stjepan, went to Spain to the beautiful city of Cáceres, where they will take part in the Kick-off meeting for one of our newest projects, ENCORE - ENergy aware BIM Cloud Platform in a COst-effective Building REnovation Context. There, they are meeting with the project partners and coordinators, and are discussing the plans for the project, their goals, ideas for the future, etc. Their main goal in the following years is to increase the share of renovated stock in Europe and worldwide by providing effective and affordable BIM tools that cover the whole renovation life-cycle. We wish them all a great start and successful project!

On 15th October, prof. Stjepan Bogdan and Matko Orsag presented five new projects developed in our Lab at a scientific symposium “New research projects at UNIZG-FER”. They have presented recently started projects: AEROTWINENCOREMBZIRC, SPECULARIA, and ENDORSE. At the symposium, the emphasis was put on possibilities of cooperation with economic operators as well as job opportunities on projects from young professionals and experienced researchers.

New H2020 project in LARICS

LARICS is a partner in a new Horizon 2020 project - ENCORE. The main objective of the project ENergy aware Building Information Modelling (BIM) Cloud Platform in a COst-effective Building REnovation Context is to increase the share of renovated stock in Europe and worldwide by providing effective and affordable BIM tools that cover the whole renovation life-cycle (from data collection to project execution, and commissioning/delivery). ENCORE will provide continuous monitoring of the energy consumption to ensure the non-degradation of the renovation works.

The ENCORE project presents a strong consortium of 10 partners from 7 European countries: 

  • RTD Talos (CYP)- Coordinator 
  • ATB Institut für angewandte Systemtechnik Bremen GmbH (GER)
  • Universitá Politecnica delle Marche (ITA)
  • University of La Laguna (ESP)
  • BIM Equity (DEN)
  • Laurentia Technologies (ESP)
  • Spa (POR)
  • ETH (SUI)
  • Consejería de Sanidad y Políticas Sociales – Junta de Extre-madura (ESP)
  • Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell'Informazione - National Research Council (ITA)

Total project's budget is more than 5 and a half million euro. The project starts October 1st, 2018.
