Project Description

By Alan Redmond, Mustafa Alshawi, in Advances in Construction ICT and E-business, Routledge (2015)
It is important to clearly identify sustainability related services that offer innovative technologies that can directly impact a client’s progress towards sustainability goals. The focus of this paper is to implement techniques such as business rules associated with semantic knowledge in order to identify appropriate environmental policies on the Web. These new classes of intelligent Web applications through the assistance of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID – image recognition) will investigate and map existing materials through object hyper linking for viewing in a BIM model. For instance; with regards to facility management of a refurbish building the new known or alternatively unknown hazardous material would be semantically linked to a data model of ASHRAE documents.
