Sustainable places 2018​​ (SP2018, Aix-Les-Bains, France)

27-29 June 2018

What a great and successful edition of the Sustainable Places Conference​ in Aix-Les Bains, FR last June! And we are so proud to have been part of it again with our contribution during two workshops and presentation of the "to be submitted" paper.

This SP2018 edition was hosted by INES Research & Development in Chambery, France and aimed to foster innovative market solutions and empower synergies between Energy-efficient Buildings (EeB) and the interdependent smart grids, policies, construction actors, and forward-thinking communities. More than 165 delegates from different stakeholder segments representing countries all over the world participated, among which INSITER project as well. The symposium comprised several scientific posters being displayed, 13 clustering workshops organized (most notably 2 events organized by the European Commission, and an official public debate on the multiannual energy program), 8 presentation sessions of papers and briefings, as well as 8 keynote speeches delivered.​

INSITER workshop Enschede

28 May 2018

​The INSITER Stakeholder workshop was a great and efficient hands-on experience where all participants were able to get a clear (and closer) picture of how the applications developed within INSITER (BIM-based Augmented Reality solution and Mobile App) work and are used for on-site activities (e.g.  Self-quality checks during construction).  These have been demonstrated live at the large-scale building renovation project in Enschede.

The live demonstration planned during the Stakeholder workshop consisted of two different demonstrations that allowed participants to experience from close by the INISTER developments. Thus, two groups were organised with the focus on demonstrating:  the Guideline App developed in INSITER while checking the glazed façade installation and the Augmented Reality application on MEP/HVAC installation using the HoloLens.

The organisations attending the workshop were:

  • Camelot Europe (NL)

  • BAM (NL)

  • Volker Wessels Digibase (NL)

  • Bruil Prefab (NL)

  • Brüninghoff (DE)

  • Mostostal (PL)

  • Plannen & Bauen 4.0. (DE)

  • Architectural Spies (BG)

  • European SME Builders Confederation (BE)

  • 13 BIS (FR)

The on-site live demonstration was followed by an interactive plenary setting engaging all stakeholders in discussing about the challenges and needs coming from practice and a practical session  on mapping and matching these with the INSITER solutions by making use of the Strategyzer value proposition canvas (Customer Pains & Gains versus Pain relievers & Gain creators). 

See hereunder some impressions of the workshop. More will come soon.
