Thank you!
After 4 exciting years, the Built2Spec project is now coming to its end. We would like to say thank you for your interest and support!

The list of demonstrated results is impressive: new airtightness test technology (PULSE), new acoustic test technology (mobile app and omnidirectional parametric loudspeaker), real time Indoor Air Quality analyser, new protocols for thermal inspection (measurements and modelling), 3D scanning and digitalisation, smart materials and embedded sensors integration, and all of these technologies have been integrated in a Virtual Construction Management Platform (VCMP).

All results, also from our various pilot site testings, will shortly be published in the knowledge center of the Built2Spec website. Stay tuned!

Interview
"This is not the end!"

Project coordinator Aurélien Henon from Nobatek summarises the achievements of Built2Spec.

"The last 4 years have been a great opportunity to propose new applied solutions for the construction site aiming at reaching better quality for buildings at no additional costs."

From BIM to PHPP

To allow data transfer from BIM models into tools for energy balance calculation and efficiency design such as the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP), Passive House Institute has developed an interface, the so called bim2PH concept. Read more

Workshops & Conferences
BIM workshop at the UK Passivhaus Conference

Passive House Institute offered an interactive workshop on the connection between BIM software and PHPP.

Exercises for Revit and Archicad have been carried out, and bim2PH was introduced.

AIVC conference in France

The University of Nottingham presented Built2Spec at the AIVC conference in Juan-Les-Pins, 18-19 September 2018.

Built2Spec in China

University of Nottingham presented at the SET conference in China, 21-23 August 2018.
Digital Tools Conference in France

Nobatek organised a conference about recent advances and perspectives in terms of digitalisation for the construction sector in Bordeaux.
 
Meetings

Successful review meeting in Italy!

The project partners met in Milan for the last time and presented the project results to the representatives of the European Comission.

Videos: Insights into Built2Spec
In January 2017, we took the opportunity to interview some of the Built2Spec partners about their activities. Take a look!
Site-inspection by drone

During the field testing in La Gudiña (Galicia) Eurecat and OHL flew a drone over a viaduct.

One goal, one team! Who is involved in the Built2Spec project?
Built2Spec is a perfect example of the innovation value chain represented in one consortium. We integrate several universities, bringing developments directly from primary research and pass them through the RTO action in applied research and development. We then include industrial actors and construction sector end users, to complete the process and testing of a new, breakthrough set of solutions that can change the way we see the whole construction process today.
