The GEO| Design + BIM event will present and discuss the needs, challenges, potential and use of geospatial data analytics and 3D modeling in spatial planning, construction, operation and maintenance.
This event aims to bridge the gap between disciplines with recent technological developments as an enabling factor. The use of IoT technology in geospatial analytics, 3D modeling and the introduction of new devices improve collaboration, efficiency and performance in planning and design phase, during construction, in post-build savings and for ongoing operational management.

Built environment simulation and design computation have become ubiquitous throughout the design world, from small scale offices to multinational firms. Simulation workflows harness the ever-growing power of personal computers, and the increasing use of cloud computing, to aid design teams in their increasingly complex endeavours throughout the globe. Disciplinary boundaries are blurring, as simulation-based decision support systems bring experts from various fields together to develop low-tech solutions, using high-tech simulation tools.

The Horizon 2020 funded project AZEB (Affordable Zero Energy Buildings) aims to achieve significant construction and lifecycle cost reductions of new NZEB’s through integral process optimisation in all construction phases. Optimising construction processes to fully integrate available solutions in the areas of process, technology and contracting is seen as the largest potential in lifecycle cost reduction. The project will create a common methodology for cost effective NZEB.
The main steps of the AZEB project are to:

Sustainability is one of the main topics of the Housing and the Innovation Agenda that Aedes- the Association of Dutch social housing corporations- members agreed upon before the summer. In the coming years, they will make their dwellings more energy efficient and increase the pace.
On a short term basis, the sector wants to attain an average energy label B for the total stock of social dwellings by 2021. This calls for an acceleration of investment in solar panels, insulation and heating network connections.
