1 4 Thematic Networks of the 5FP In the construction sector Outputs, lessons learned, follow up Christer SJÖSTRÖM,, Univ. GÄVLE, KTH, SE Jean-Luc CHEVALIER, CSTB, Fr Summary Why thematic networks? Four 5FP networks in the construction sector: ID cards, main outputs CRISP LIFETIME PEBBU PRESCO Lessons learned from networking in construction Disseminating the results, enhancing the networking Why thematic networks? Share and pool knowledge and experiences > State Of The Art Reach a common level of awareness > Core set of agreed principles, methods, tools Demonstrate and Disseminate > Communication, Education, Training material 4 5FP TN s in the construction sector CRISP: Construction and city related sustainability indicators LIFETIME: Lifetime Engineering of Buildings and Civil Infrastructures PeBBu: Performance Based Building PRESCO: Practical Recommendations for Sustainable Construction 1

2 CRISP: : ID card (1/2) CRISP: : ID card (2/2) Coordination: VTT (Fi), CSTB (Fr) Members: 24 (16 countries) Budget: 0,75 M Duration: 3 years May 2000 > April 2003 Objective: Collect and organize in a data base the sustainability indicators already used and under development in the participating countries Structure: 4 clusters Product indicators Building indicators Urban indicators Process indicators CRISP: : Main outputs SOTA reports (national and summary) A data base containing 500 indicators and 50 systems of indicators Communication and follow-up actions: Presco - Crisp workshop Ostende (2002) Final Conference Cannes (2003) Web-site providing free access to the indicators data base Basis for ISO/TC59/SC17 work on indicators Basis for a wider performance indicators data-base (within PeBBu) 2

(more information on ) was implemented by the "Société Générale", in accordance with the political engagement subscribed by the Directorate-General of the bank as regards sustainable development. Reports on Lifetime Engineering best practices, best research results, data sources, generic model, and educational activities International SOTA report on lifetime environmental impact assessment Survey and analysis of national demonstration projects Hygrothermic comfort Indoor air Quality Energy management Visual Comfort Quality of spaces Acoustic comfort Management of maintenance Communication and follow up actions: actions: Integrated choice of the products, systems and processes of construction Quality of water Harmonious Relation of the buildings with their environment Olfactory Comfort Management of waste Building site with weak harmful effects Management of water 3 workshops Oslo (2002), Kuopio (2003), Lyon (2005) Public WebWeb-site with all the deliverables Dissemination kit (Translatable CD, flyer, summarised presentations) for National Dissemination Groups new Tower for the "Société Générale" Bank

5 Elaborating the Functional Concept Functional needs Solution Concept Performance requirements PRESCO: : ID card (1/2) Coordination: BBRI (Be) Members: 28,, from 16 countries Budget: 0,95 M Duration: 4 years Oct 2000 > Sept 2004 Hamburger Model PRESCO: : ID card (2/2) PRESCO: : Main outputs Objective: Bring together all parties involved in Building Construction for establishing and transferring into practice sustainability recommendations Structure: : 3 tasks European code of practice for sustainable building: recommendations data base Benchmarking of LCA based environmental assessment tools Dissemination Recommendations data base Report on the practical comparison exercise of the LCA tools on the Swiss Futura-House case Communication: Presco-Crisp workshop Ostende (2002) Public web-site 6 Newsletters Publication of the Code of practice 5

6 Lessons learned: burdens Diversity of partners, inducing: Differences and even confusion between approaches, concerns, languages,.. Need for time to easily communicate Low budget, for ordinary members, and consequently: Low involvement Little availability for specific tasks Lessons learned: benefits (1/2) Diversity of partners, providing: Diversity of approaches and concerns Complementarities of inputs and views Good interest and motivation European Integration National SOTA s to Int. SOTA Trend for a core common knowledge Involvement of NAS countries Benchmarking and comparison exercise Lessons learned: benefits (2/2) Knowledge and documentation availability through: Workshops Web-sites Dissemination, educational and training matter Demonstration projects compendia Excellent preparation for implementing harmonization and standardization work: Strength to Europe in ISO Time saving in CEN 6

7 Lessons learned: limits Time limits Almost 2 years are necessary for a good common understanding between members and of the goals Then very soon the Network ends! Budget limits The major part of the budget is spent in travelling and management tasks Dissemination limits The main difficulty is at the national level, from the network member to the expected users of the results: language, concern No budget is available after the end of the network for translation and maintenance of the web-sites Key-action action: Capitalize and disseminate the results Maintenance needs: at the human level (the network of experts) at the technical level (the communication tools: website ) National dissemination activity needs: a national take over is necessary (mirror groups, documentation translation, information seminars, budget! ) International follow-up needs: Up stream: : research actions according to research agendas and gaps identification Down stream: : application guidance, validation, follow-up in standardization Conclusion: Enhancing the networking Exploring a future to the networking: How to provide the ECTP with the major inputs from the above networks? How to keep alive and productive the existing expert network generated? The 5FP networks : a basis for a large Construction Sector network in the 7FP? 7
