EUREC will offer scientific support establish the performance of eco-building technologies today and assist the IWG5 in setting realistic but ambitious performance targets, then monitoring progress towards them. WIP will organise study tours to buildings that set the standard in eco-renovation or construction. These will be opportunities for IWG5 members to meet the actors responsible and the people who live in or near them to collect their views.

The building of the Smart Living Lab will be an experimental place equipped with permanent monitoring systems linked to digital models to continuously assess the achievement of the performance target through post-occupancy studies. It will also guide researchers in designing new experiments on this “plug & test” building.

The transition to climate neutrality has a large impact on the job of building and HVAC designers, manufacturers, installers, investors, etc. Renovating our building stock to make it more energy efficient is a huge task. Both research and practice prove that users have an important impact on this performance.

These digitized processes must be human-centred, transparent and cost-effective for the permit applicants and authorities. Another objective is to develop and integrate technical solutions for automating compliance checking of buildings in their design, construction and renovation/demolition lifecycle phases. All this will be based on open and neutral data exchange standards.
