What is the problem with Building Performance?
The building energy performance gap is “the difference between predicted and actual/measured building energy consumption, either for an individual building or for a group of buildings” A substantial energy performance gap has been observed in both new construction and building energy retrofit projects and is an issue that is seen in nearly all regions of the world. The performance gap is not a result of codes or regulations in any single jurisdiction, but a systemic problem globally How much does it cost the owner to be ignorant of the situation? Energy performance gap in building: actual energy usage is twice the planned value or less than half of the predicted value
Building Performance Gap: estimated and operational
PMTech IT provides analytical consulting, engineering, and technical services to owners and operators of buildings, using either an existing or newly created digital model of the building. We work with our clients to improve the low-energy performance of buildings, manage them better, provide competitive advantages, and enhance the service quality for tenants

We use AI-enhanced simulation and management
(based on IBM Research methodology)
Simulation workflows are complex. There are a multitude of data points, methods and systems. AI-enriched simulation helps determine what to process and how to process it. It optimises the computational and search process to a smaller, more promising pool of options. Simulators can determine the method that minimises time and computational load while delivering effective results.
Over time, the AI acceleration engine learns how to automate and streamline the simulation and control workflows, increasing the speed of computation to real-time, the accuracy of predictions, and the success of decision making.
The combination of physical modelling (BIM) and state-of-the-art data-driven modelling (IoT) in a single AI-enhanced simulation tool is currently being developed.
Bridging the performance gap will be critical to achieving and realizing ambitious targets for reducing energy consumption and emissions in the building sector. How do you determine the limits and reserves of an operating building? Many companies and researchers are working on this problem The BIM-based approach allows you to work with a digitized object (smart building). After a surge of interest in the use of BIM technology in design and construction, it becameclear that, on the one hand, only 5% of real estate companies use such a powerful asset as the BIM model in building operation (maintenance), and on the other hand, the costs of Operation and Maintenance (O&M) far exceed those of any previous phase, averaging 70% of total life-cycle costs. Wireless Internet of Things technologies (LoRaWAN) are opening up opportunities to connect the static Building and Instructional Design (BIM) model with a dynamic data flow (IoT) model for: - Digitize analog equipment - Diagnose control system failures and treat them locally - Manage both large and small engineering ecosystems, scaling rapidly - Build up the overall intelligence of an individual building with localized examples in the form of narrow AI - flexibly respond to customer demands and, on the other hand, manage their new experiences for responsible resource consumption - Establish sustainable building performance Challenge areas that were pre-defined from a range of industries dedicated to: Air Quality, Cleantech, Climate Change, Climate Emergency, Cooling Systems, Decarbonisation, Decentralized Energy, Dietary Footprint, Ecology, Energy Efficiency, Energy Storage, Energy Transition, CO2 Emissions, Green cities, Smart Devices, Smart Environments, Green Deal, Green Districts, Green Spaces, Heating Systems, Landscaping, Low Emissions Tech, Mitigation, New Energy Models, Recycling, Regenerative by design, Asset Management, BIM, Building Automation, Building Simulation, Built Environment, Community Facilities, Renewables, Smart Grids, Smart Infrastructures, Smart Street Lighting, Smart Utilities, Sponge Cities, Sustainable Garbage Processing, Sustainable Tech, Urban Management, Urban Services, Waste Management, Zero Waste.
