Abstract

This paper deals with the FP7 EU project “Building as a Service” (BaaS). The BaaS project is a research initiative which aims at providing a generic solution for delivering standardization and interoperability concepts for building data and open middleware platform covering the Design- and Operational-Phase In-teroperability Gap in the application domain of “non-residential buildings.” There are two important phases in the building life-cycle: the design phase and the operational phase. Development and integration of ICT tech-nologies can help best coordinate the building design and operation phases. Overcoming interoperability gaps between both phases so as providing a way of integration to use existing and future tools and services would help to enhance building operations and controls. Better design, standardization and interoperability can con-tribute themselves to the goals of improving energy efficiency. Interoperable components working as services at the building level, will lead naturally to the concept of the Building as a Service ecosystem. This paper aims at analyzing some of the BaaS project topics: (1) building data management and interoperability: data warehouse to collect, organize, store and aggregate static and dynamic data from various in- and out-of-building sources; an IFC-based BIM will act as a central repository for all static building data, and a data warehouse will be used for dynamic data, both schemes mapped using a unique vocabulary. (2) Integration of building energy management Services using Open Service Middleware Platform technologies. A service middleware platform to abstract the building physical devices, support high level services on the cloud and facili-tate secure two-way communication between the physical and ICT layers (building) with high level services (cloud).
