BuildHEAT addresses this challenging sector by:- elaborating systemic packages for the deep rehabilitation of residential buildings- developing innovative technologies facilitating the implementation of the renovation measures- developing financial tools enabling large public and private investments - involving the construction chain from the very beginning and all along the building life cycle.
The session will delve into some important aspects of FM practice, including writing the BIM deliverable standard, understanding legal and contractual issues, addressing staff skills, and developing a true mindset of building life cycle management.
Discovering how integrating FM at the design stage can save building life cycle costs supports sustainable delivery and is important not only for commercial office or public space developments, but also for facilities like transportation hubs.
This is the topic of a technical presentation titled “Connecting Use-Phase Benefits with Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment,” presented by Jerry Phelan, Codes and Standard Advocate, Building Energy Performance and LCA Specialist, Bayer MaterialScience LLC.
Considering environmental impacts in the design phase of a building is crucial, and the main objective of an appropriate building life cycle analyzing tool should be usability during the design phase of buildings, since the opportunity to reduce the building's environmental impact decreases substantially after its design is completed (Kohler and Lutzkendorf 2002; Lloyd et al.
Results over the entire building life cycle indicate that construction, while not as significant as the use phase, is as important as other life-cycle stages (Bilec et al.
The knowledge on the ecological assessment of a building life cycle should be utilised while making a decision on the selection of types of materials available, production technologies, selection of material, structural and utilisation solutions in buildings by the designer and, most importantly, by the investor.
By reducing the environmental impact throughout the building life cycle from planning and design, to construction, operation, maintenance, and even dismantling, great benefits are realized by building owners, tenants and the larger community.
This data "can be used, or viewed, or manipulated for any variety of reasons or purposes from the early design throughout the entire building life cycle.
In the total building life cycle energy are included: primary energy used for production of building materials and equipment, for its transport to the construction site, for construction and renovation of building and the fuel burned (even in cases of electrical heating or taking heat from district heating network) during building use to ensure a required microclimate.
