Project summary:

This project is IAI IFC R3.0- phase domain project of building service area run by Finnish party. The project is called as BS-7: HVAC Performance Validation.

The aim of the project is to promote function of building construction systems by developing methods and tools used in all phases of construction process. Designing, acceptance, use and maintenance are phases of the life cycle that are studied carefully. The concrete aim of the project is to define IFC product models for chosen heating and ventilation systems and products in the way that they can be utilised in performance validation. In addition, validation is made by simulation.

Because of the extent of the subject the examination has been focused on following products:
