Henrik Leander Evers and Per-Kristian Hansson from CITA presented the DURAARK project on the 26. November 2015 in the frame of the builingSMART day at the Danish Technological University . The event informed about the latest trends concerning Building Information Modelling, with a special focus on the needs of Building Owners, Architects and Engineers and Information exchange. A market place for ideas and discussions related to buildingSMART was the theme of the day, which was thoroughly discussed by all participants representing the entire knowledge chain of the building industry. The participants included developers, architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturers and personal from facility management.
The DURAARK team demonstrates, how the semantic web technologies, developed in DURAARK, allow to connect highly different building models, such as IFC and Point Cloud data. Visitors had as well the opportunity to check their internal organisation of building data in terms of longterm access, when they took part in a survey about sustainability in building data. Participants agreed, that thinking about long term access to BIM data is of immanent importanc
e for every stakeholder, that invests into these technology and processes.
Participants of the buildingSMART day showed a huge interest in the DURAARK project, especially about the latest advancements in the automatic generation of BIM files in the open IFC format from indoor Point Cloud scans. But there was as well a lot of interest in the archival strategies of DURAARK.
DURAARK thanks the organisers of this day – especially Markus Lampe from DTU and Rikke Carlsen from bips.dk .
