RenoZEB project organised a Training Day for architects and CPD trainers about the new tools developed in the project for energy calculation, efficiency and optimisation of renovated buildings. This event provided architects from all over Europe with deep knowledge about the newest procedures and strategies for guaranteeing the implementation of key eco-friendly measures in the design process, thus aiming to reduce the emission according to the SOTEU 2020.
The RenoZEB tools allow the energy calculation, simulation and certification of new buildings and renovations, supporting international standards and developing a BIM model that consolidates the information in a 3D parametric environment. By the end of the event, the participants were trained to generate accurate information about the energy performance and efficiency of the building, allowing later adjustments in an iterative process for energy optimisation.
Additionally, the architects were taught to work in Open BIM, meaning that they will be able to implement those tools later in their own studios, independently of their BIM software (Revit, ArchiCAD, Allplan, etc.). Studios that do not use BIM technology can develop fully functional and calculated energy models, not needing any previous knowledge.
