Motivation to join NEED4B
Acciona Infraestructuras´ motivation to join the project is to incorporate the BIM in demo sites, as carrying out the energy simulation of the different solution before the design.
Acciona Infraestructuras has spent several years working in the BIM and its implantation in work, as a new methodology based on the collaboration of all stakeholders on the same model. This model is a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a building and works as a large database where everything is linked.
Taking part in Need4B project, we will be able to develop a new methodology which integrates BIM with the techniques of energy analysis and simulation.
This project provides the possibility to Acciona Infrastructuras to demonstrate BIM in different buildings, climates and parts of Europe with their own requirements and legal limitations.
On the other hand, understanding technological innovation as the strategic line of the future and with the idea of continuing their commitment to sustainability, ACCIONA has taken up the challenge of promoting energy efficiency in buildings. This issue it is being considered in the works awarded the company. This strategic objective has increased R & D work carried out in recent years and allowed us to understand that the cost-effectiveness of energy efficiency strategies are directly related to the holistic management of the same during the life cycle of the building and if it is taken into account from the conceptual design phase, the greater its effectiveness. For this reason, this project represents a great opportunity to propose a new methodology for integration and validation of efficient construction technologies on each demo site.
Moreover, our participation would impact positively on the business, allowing ACCIONA to be positioned at the forefront of a growing market, because the innovation in energy efficiency issues applied to building will encourage the enterprise’s construction activity. In addition, we expect new opportunities or business models that promote sustainable solutions as a resource for economic development.
This initiative is an international strategic vector and it is endorsed in the interest raised by the European Commission through the Directives to improve energy efficiency in buildings, which increases the supranational interest in the sector and increasing the potential market of the project.
