Optimizing the use of resources for and in buildings poses immense challenges for cities, municipalities and also investors. New construction, use, redesign and deconstruction of existing buildings must be carried out with lifecycle-wide optimization. This requires detailed knowledge of set screws and development potentials in order to be able to make strategically correct decisions with low personnel and capital coverage via benchmarking. The aim of the research project is the development of an intelligent open source tool for data collection, storage and processing in order to a) collect standardized characteristics for the building survey of heterogeneous stocks and make them usable for all conditions in the building life cycle, b) to estimate missing building characteristics due to lack of data with statistical methods and to be able to refine or replace them step by step, c) to enable the cooperation of a large number of technically involved persons via a platform as well as d) to define open interfaces for the integration of current and future software and data standards and to offer methods for interdisciplinary data collection and feed-in. The platform should be applicable as a tool for different building stocks.
