The HOLISTEEC project aims at providing the European AEC/FM industry with a comprehensive design approach taking into account the whole building life-cycle and the influence of the neighborhoods, with the objective to make a decisive contribution to built environment energy efficiency improvement.
By means of HOLISTEEC, all the actors involved in the building value chain including architects, designers, contractors, owners, component suppliers, users and related public authorities will be able to effectively interact in the different design, construction, operation, and maintenance phases of the building, ensuring that the best construction techniques are applied, possible problems and drawbacks early detected and correction strategies promptly applied, contributing to boost high quality new energy efficient buildings design and construction.
The main objective of the project is to design, develop, and demonstrate a BIM-based, on-the-cloud, collaborative building design software platform, featuring advanced design support for multi-criteria building optimization, taking into account external neighbourhood-level influences.
The HOLISTEEC platform and tool will be applied to real cases, namely four pilot projects especially selected to demonstrate the new holistic approach in different contexts and typologies of building projects, proving its potential for market replication.
From Theory to Practices of building design: a workshop organized by HOLISTEEC Project (1st June).
In February 2016, the third project newsletter has been shared inside and outside HOLISTEEC Consortium.
The next HOLISTEEC project meeting will be held in Alicante the 14th and 15th October 2015.
