Local water harvesting, demand reduction and wastewater treatment measures at a building scale can help manage water resources around the Mediterranean.   This study conducts a life cycle water, energy and cost analysis of rainwater and condensate water harvesting, water conservation, wastewater treatment and three combinations of these measures over 50 years, using an apartment building in Sehaileh, Lebanon. The measures’ performance is further investigated through a comprehensive sensitivity analysis that extends the applicability of findings.

This guide published in France by the plan for the digital transition in buildings (Plan de Transition Numérique du Bâtiment -PTNB), is intended for building owners and developers. It aims to show the interest of implementing a Building Information Modelling (BIM) approach: better design of the building, improved construction quality, easier maintenance, renovation and deconstruction, reduction of the overall cost, securing of the deadlines.

The French plan for the digital transition in buildings (Plan de Transition Numérique dans le Bâtiment - PTNB) has identified the needs of construction professionals in digital tools to be used in office or the construction site. A survey was carried out by interviewing 19 professional organisations concerned. The identification of needs will enable software publishers and digital tools designers to know the expectations of the professionals in order to best meet their needs. The needs identified have been classified into three levels (pyramid of the hierarchy of needs).
