Work Package 2: EeB energy typologies

This work package is led by partner Mostostal Warszawa S.A. (MOW). The aim is to optimise and integrate cost-effective and high-performance EeB technologies, techniques and measures to be applied for both newly designed and retrofitted buildings integrated in the healthcare districts.

EeB solutions for MEP and energy systems: The goal is to critically select, optimise and model the integration of state-of-the-art EeB solutions regarding MEP installations and building energy and control systems, based on the inter-dependent optimisation between medical systems-MEP installations-control systems-buildings.

EeB solutions for building space and envelope: To (re)configure the most optimal design for building envelop and façade systems, as well as interior processes, healthcare services and organisation management, and the facilities (buildings and neighbourhoods).

This task will connect the EeB technologies and measures with design optimisation of the building space/interior layout and the building envelope. For this purpose, this task will establish the most effective relationship between building design and user workflow processes. The design approach will be based on the principles of the Layer Model (‘Schillenmodel’)by TNO to analyse the workflow based on 4 functional types of space, i.e. ‘hot floor (e.g. operation rooms and laboratories), hotel (e.g. patient rooms), office (e.g. workspaces), and factory (e.g. technical rooms). Another concept examined within this task is Health Flow Engineering. This is an approach to alternate the traditional way of breaking the design effort into sub-questions to be handled by several separately working engineers, architects and designers one after the other. The central point in this concept is the description of the medical processes that will be used as a dynamic communication tool between the community of medical staff, technicians and other stakeholders. STREAMER will integrate these innovative design approaches based on BIM and GIS with the relevant database and a communication platform within the Semantic Web.

Integrated neighbourhood energy systems: Achieve net zero energy buildings as foreseen by EPBD 2012 through the optimisation of building and neighbourhood interactions.

This task will investigate the most effective solutions based on smart grids, distributed generation plants, tri-generation plants, district heating/cooling and thermal storage, especially considering cost-effective buildings/districts. Further, investigates the degree of decentralisation of energy solutions that is optimal for different part of the district area and the scale needed in order to achieve the highest energy-efficiency and cost-effectiveness for different energy solutions.
