For the past ten months, BIM Academy has been researching the feasibility of a building performance measurement and advice tool which is currently lacking in the building industry. Smart Connected Buildings will be an intelligent data platform containing building design information, sensor data and user feedback, producing meaningful, actionable advice for occupiers, building owners and those who build and maintain properties.
The platform has been designed around the fact many more buildings are now being designed,

Smart Connected Buildings is our study researching the feasibility of a building performance measurement tool which is currently lacking in the building industry, a tool which can make better use of the fact that many more buildings are being designed, refurbished and modelled using BIM. Our team comprises BIM Academy, National Energy Foundation, Northumbria University and Your Homes Newcastle.
A BIM approach generates far more data than ever before,

An innovative feasibility study using sensor data to establish feedback loops to help improve building performance and wellbeing
Interest in Building Information Modelling (BIM) has seen a considerable rise in consistent data sharing practices, streamlining the design and construction processes. However, owners and occupants still do not know if their building is performing as ordered. Therefore, there remains an opportunity for work to improve the utilisation of information once a building is in use.
