PARTNERS IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Leonhard Obermeyer Center

The Leonhard Obermeyer Center of the Technische Universität München combines the research undertaken by five different chairs with the aim of uniting standardised building models with geographical information systems in one system and making these available for planning tasks in various degrees of detailing. The Center was named in honour of our company founder Dr. Leonhard Obermeyer. Throughout his life he had advocated the use of state-of-the-art computer technology in building design and played a pioneering role in that respect. We are proud that the continuation of his life's work on a scientific level bears his name.

 

Research project "OI + BAU", TU Braunschweig

OBERMEYER is a practice partner in the research team for the "OI + BAU - Optimierung der Initiierung komplexer Bauvorhaben (Optimization of the initiation of complex building projects)" project at the Technical University of Braunschweig. During the course of the project, theoretical and practical content and processes as well as disturbances in the various project phases are to be investigated in several workshops to optimize the project initiation based on of the results. The goal is to develop a practical guide for public and private clients by the end of 2018, which is intended to optimize the project initiation in order to prevent cost and deadline transitions in later project phases.

 

buildingSMART e.V.

buildingSMART - formerly "Industrieallianz für Interoperabilität e.V." or International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI) - stands for the new approach of creating innovative, sustainable and cost-efficient buildings and building installations by employing modern IT solutions with the consistent use of data for integrated processes.
Within the framework of establishing the model-based approach for design, construction and facility management processes the registered society succeeded in pushing through the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) as the open standard for building models.
OBERMEYER has been a member of the society since it was set up.

 

Institute of Construction Informatics, TU Dresden

Since 1995 OBERMEYER and the Institute of Construction Informatics - formerly Computer Application in Civil Engineering (CIB) - of the TU Dresden have been working together on various research projects sponsored by the European Commission and national institutions. The HESMOS project on the subject of energy efficiency was successfully completed in spring 2014. Following that the project e ("Optimized design methodologies for energy-efficient buildings integrated in the neighbourhood energy systems“) has been running since October 2013.

The objective is to develop a BIM-based design and simulation platform in order to devise energy-efficient buildings which are optimally integrated into the energy systems of, and interact with the buildings in, the neighbourhood. The platform offers uniform access to several simulation tools embracing a multitude of physical, mathematical and IT models. In addition the platform will contain monitoring and control tools in order to be able to monitor and control the building's so-called "Key Performance Indicators" such as for example energy quality, thermal comfort or costs at any stage of the design.

 

Chair for Computation in Engineering, TU München

A long-standing partnership has existed with the Chair for Computation in Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Surveying, of the Technische Universität München. The cooperation begins with awarding internships and degree dissertations, but also extends to research projects such as e.g. the current research project F. The German abbreviation stands for "Production-Synchronous Process Simulation of Unique Construction Sites in Special Foundation Construction". The construction supervision / construction management sector at OBERMEYER is thus continuing the successful cooperation with the TU München which began with the F (virtual construction site) project.

 

Bayerisches Institut für Angewandte Umweltforschung und -technik (BIfA)

Together with the Bavarian Institute for Waste Research / BifA we are performing comparative life-cycle analyses of on-going refurbishment schemes within the scope of the project „Integrated Product Policy in Building Refurbishment“, applying ecological balance tools to the data and findings from construction practice. The objective is to optimise decision processes in everyday planning and promote the autonomous adoption of environmentally compatible procedures. By setting up guidelines for the employment of existing tools, it is aimed to foster the sustained and extensive incorporation of IPP (Integrated Product Policy) in the construction industry.
