Registration and networking

Michael Sharratt, Chief Executive, Teropta Limited – I_REAP Project

The I_REAP Project is about Artificial Intelligence use within the Built Environment and is based upon the real time performance monitoring of buildings for energy usage. I_REAP will:

  • Monitor the building primary parameters or energy usage, temperature, humidity, VOC’s air quality, external factors such as temperature/ rain etc
  • Gather feedback from internal users on building comfort
  • Review these against the expected performance of the building derived from a BIM model
  • Feedback to control the building to minimize energy usage whilst maintaining a comfortable surrounding
  • Feed this info into a model of the building which has then suggestions for the way the building could be improved together with a likely cost analysis of cost to modify and payback times – hence generating a building financial running costs model.

All this is displayed in a graphical format. The monitoring will be using the Internet of Things (IoT) sensing systems for a minimal intrusion into the building fabric, and can be deployed retrospectively

Alexander Trautrims, University of Nottingham, Slavery Beacon - Labour exploitation in Construction and Facilities Management - answers to difficult questions.
