Within the overall aim, there are a number of specific objectives that relate to the optimisation of energy-efficient designs of new and retrofitted buildings in the healthcare district and designing new advanced tools.  Therefore, STREAMER’s mainly focus is to reduce the energy use and carbon emission of healthcare districts in the EU by 50% in the next 10 years by enabling clients, architects, and technical designers, contractors, building operators and occupants to design new and retrofitted energy-efficient buildings integrated in the healthcare district energy systems using optimized Semantic-driven Design methods and interoperable tools for Building and Geo Information Modelling (BIM-GIS).


STREAMER has 3 major scientific and technological (S/T) objectives:

1. Objective 1: To substantially optimise the energy-efficient design of both new and retrofitted buildings in the healthcare districts by: knowledge-based modelling of integrated EeB technologies and measures, optimally integrating these EeB design solutions, and validating the whole lifecycle energy performance during the design stage.

2. Objective 2:
To provide the multidisciplinary design teams with advanced design tools by improving the open interoperability between Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Geographical Information System (GIS) in a Semantic Web (SW) environment, and by enabling model-based analysis of the energy performance.

3. Objective 3: To effectively manage information flow, knowledge integration, communication and decision-making in the participatory semantics-driven design process according to the principles of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)
