This technology offers huge potential to meet heating and cooling needs throughout Europe in a sustainable way, while providing a very comfortable conditioning of the indoor space. This workshop will discuss the effects of radiant heating and cooling systems on IEQ, as well as the proper design of hybridGEOTABS buildings.
Title: “Building commissioning in Europe”
Chairs: Stefan Plesser, Ole Teisen
Speakers: Stefan Plesser, IGS TU Braunschweig; Jan Mehnert, IGS; Ole Teisen, Sweco; Manuel Krempl, E7; Cormac Ryan, CoPilot
New buildings and deep retrofits with their sophisticated systems for heating, cooling and air conditioning are rather complicated technical systems. Especially building automation and control systems with their new IT-protocols and technical requirements have added complexity to building projects. Apparently, they are a huge challenge to designers, engineers, construction companies and facilities managers. As a consequence, the performance gap appeared: buildings do not work as intended and miss their initial performance targets in operation. This is doubly costly: first, design and construction cause additional cost and then, later, operation cost are also higher than expected.
A solution to this problem can be found in other industries: quality management. In engineering, “quality” describes the degree, to which a set of inherent characteristics of an object fulfills requirements. In short: a building owner should get what he pays for!
Consequently, “quality management” is a process of supporting the fulfillment of requirements. Over the last years, two services have evolved as reliable quality management services and are becoming increasingly popular: Technical Monitoring and Commissioning.
The workshop will present the current stage of quality management for building performance. It addresses especially building owners, engineers, facility management and contracting companies with their individual perspective on quality.
This workshop is part of the project ‘QUANTUM – Quality management for building performance’ and has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 680529.

The workshop will introduce the TripleA-reno and MOBISTYLE open ICT solutions, followed by a dynamic interactive brainstorm session around the following questions: What problems can the gamified platforms and ICT solutions solve for the engineering branch? Why these open platforms are better than the existing ones? What results do these projects offer for engineers and manufacturers? Who are the users of these innovative solutions and how can we better deliver the tools to them?

Title: The Power of the Cloud
Organiser: Belimo Automation AG
Chairs: Dr. Marc Thuillard
Speakers: Dr. Marc Thuillard, Dipl. Ing. Marc Steiner, Dipl. Ing. Forest Reider
Short description: This workshop presents how the power of the cloud can benefit the HVAC industry, by facilitating the exchange of information between stakeholders, it can affect the entire lifecycle of a building. The design, commissioning, operation and maintenance can leverage the cloud as a medium to store and share information, configure and monitor devices, and provide a gateway to integrate technologies. It provides a medium for transparency, intelligent monitoring, and optimization.
Title: The Value of Good Performance - How High-Performance Buildings Protect the Asset value and Increase your Bottom Line”
Organiser: BRE- Building Research Establishment (BRE) UK Ltd.
Sponsor: BRE Global
Speakers: Dr. Andy Lewry and James Fisher, presenters of case studies (TBC)
Short description: The discussion would address questions such as: we have the ability to design good buildings and the knowledge to operate them in an effective and efficient manner – so why doesn’t it happen? Why doesn’t the design feed through to performance-in-use? “The performance gap”, with increased energy usage of between 200-450%: what are causes and how can this be remedied? What is the effect on the asset and its value from poor performance? The second session will be a showcase for high performance buildings in Romania – Where 4 cases where presented and then the discussion on how the sustainable performance and certification was achieved.
Title: Costs and benefits of antibacterial filter and its effects on energy saving, human health and worker productivity
Organiser: Rhoos S.p.A
Sponsor: Rhoos S.p.A
Speakers: Leonardo Prendin - Marketing Director, Micaela Ranieri – Product Manager
Short description: The discussion would present the results of a literature review aimed at exploring how to integrate the health and performance effects on building occupants into the economic benefits of the antibacterial filter. In detail, the research focuses on the methods used to evaluate costs and benefits produced by the application of a biocidal filter, comparing it with a traditional one, by means of computing both direct costs (related to hospitalization and antibiotic treatment) and indirect costs (mainly identified with the loss of working days). Therefore, this workshop will try to enhance the focus on energy technology developing an analysis of the impact on human health and employee performance.

Title: Indoor Environment Design for Smart Buildings
Organiser & sponsor: HALTON
Speakers: Prof. Arsen Melikov, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Dr. Panu Mustakallio, Halton Oy, Prof. Risto Kosonen, Aalto University
Short description: This workshop presents and discusses the intelligent indoor climate technologies for smart buildings. The workshop focuses to non-residential buildings. It starts from the overall target of providing and ensuring wellbeing for building occupants.
The need for paradigm shift in generating indoor environment that complies with the needs of smart buildings is presented. Design options focused on providing indoor climate for single or group of occupants in smart buildings is discussed. In such buildings the design of indoor climate system sets boundaries for smart management of indoor conditions. Important question is how to assess indoor environment in future buildings. Current and future methods for control and assessment of indoor environment is presented and discussed.
The design of Halton Vario demand based indoor climate system for smart office building is introduced. This design enables flexible variable airflows in spaces with different needs, based on intelligent room units with sensors and user interfaces. The system responds to floor layout changes and operates in energy efficient manner. Case study of Halton Vario system in European research project LowUp is presented.
Room systems as a service platform for smart buildings is introduced. The performance of the concept is demonstrated in seven meeting rooms of an educational building. The main benefits of the novel, smart system compared to the standard ones are the improved monitoring of the ventilation system performance, enhanced controllability of indoor climate in energy efficient manner, and improved users’ perception on the indoor climate. Overview of the trends in smart management of indoor climate conditions with the Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) for buildings as established by the European Union is presented.
There will be discussion and brainstorming of the subject between the presentations.
