ACCORD - Automating the Building Permitting and Compliance
ACCORD is a Horizon Europe project (2022-2025) that focuses on automating the building permit and compliance processes using BIM and other data sources. ACCORD develops a Semantic Framework that will be demonstrated in five real-life construction projects around Europe: Finland, Estonia, Germany, UK and Spain. The framework includes semantic interoperability, a rule formalisation tool and integrated micro-services for building permit and compliance checking.
ACCORD’s main result is the semantic building permitting framework based on microservices that integrate many manual steps in the building permit process into a semi-automated workflow.
ACCORD will also develop
- a rule formalisation tool, based on semantic web technologies, allowing formalisation of regulations into a standardized rule representation format.
- a Ruleset Database allows for the storage and retrieval of rules stored in a semantic format for applications of various stakeholders when using building permitting and compliance checking services
Building Compliance Checking Microservices supporting various use cases
- open standardized Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) (D4.2) for building compliance and other information services to allow integrated dataflows between building permitting, building compliance, and other information services
