D4.4: Models of prefab components
created using WP1 parametric
P2Endure is a European research project funded under the EU programme H2020-EE-2016-PPP (supporting
accelerated and cost-effective deep renovation of buildings through Public-Private Partnerships (EEB PPP). The
project aims to improve the availability and performance of energy saving solutions for deep renovation and
transformation of vacant, obsolete or sub-optimal public buildings into dwellings, promoting evidence-based
innovative solutions for deep renovation based on prefabricated plug and play systems in combination with on-site
robotic 3D-printing and BIM demonstrated and monitored at 10 real projects,
4 virtual demonstrators in 4 geo-clusters with EU-wide replication potentials.
Deliverable D4.4. contributes to the project by providing online access to the models of a selected number of
prefabricated plug and play solutions. The models are provided as building energy models (BEMs) and can be
seamlessly integrated in energy simulations using the Energy Plus software. The deliverable is therefore targeted
towards energy modelers that want to integrate Plug and Play solutions in their models. The deliverable also helps
software developers to develop automated solutions for BIM2BEM and energy assessment tools.
Some of the provided models are available directly already in the Open Source repository of the implemented
configurator, some of the models are available as building energy models (BEM) in the IDF format. The models are
intended to serve as examples for:
A. local factories that intend to implement the configurator and e-Marketplace around a selected offer of
renovation components for specific district (the examples provided with the Open Source repository are
most helpful here), and
B. for producers of renovation components to understand how to create targeted BEM models that can be
integrated seamlessly within parametric BEM based renovation studies (the examples provided as BEM
models are most helpful for this case).
All models are available openly, either with the Open Source repository on GitLab or with the TU Berlin’s open
research data repository DepositeOnce. The virtual demonstrations aim to provide entrepreneurs that would like to
implement an e-Marketplace in their local district with understanding how to model plug and play components that
they would like to offer for renovation activities. Additionally, the examples here can serve as illustrations for
software developers that would like to implement the parametric modeler solutions within their software product.
Finally, developers of e-Marketplaces for renovation products can use the demonstrators as examples of how to
present renovation products.
