Start of the second phase

The project EarlyBIM 2: Evaluation of building design variants in early phases on the basis of adaptive detailing strategies (FOR 2363) will be funded by the DFG.

EarlyBIM 2 is dedicated to the development of novel methods to demonstrate the enormous potential of model-based and simulation-based design planning as well as possibilities for its technical implementation. The research group consists of 6 project partners, who deal with the following topics in the corresponding subprojects: (1) Automated and traceable transfer of detailing processes between different design variants (2) Easy integration of variant creation of similar projects into the current design (3) Identification of potentials for the improvement of building designs in order to support planners. More specifically; to provide comprehensible explanation of design decisions on the basis of existing boundary conditions and assumptions (4) use of life-cycle based energy and environmental impact analyses at an early stage using experience and design strategies from previous projects (5) Early provision of structural design knowledge through artificial intelligence methods for the support of design decisions. Among other things, methods of graph theory, case-based reasoning, machine learning and knowledge-based systems are applied and further developed across subprojects.

In view of the social challenges and the associated requirements for buildings in terms of energy efficiency and sustainability, and taking into account the latest developments in the building industry in the field of model-based planning, the aimed findings and developments have a high application potential.
