The digital transformation of the building industry is underway 
- keyword “Building Information Modelling – BIM”. The added 
value of digital models extends far beyond the traditional 
methods of building planning. The SimXp seminar on 24 and 25 
September 2019 in Holzkirchen, Germany, will show how to 
combine simulation and experimentation to benefit from 
digitalisation successfully.

SimXp focusses on digital planning tools for optimising energy 
efficiency and indoor climate. The seminar is organised by the 
Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP and the 
simulation specialists of ISimQ. Digitalisation and the 
resulting information density are the prerequisites for life 
cycle-oriented, integral building planning. Thanks to BIM, 
interdisciplinary project teams will be able to link the 
requirements from architecture, building physics, technical 
building services, facility and energy management to an 
unprecedented degree and develop comprehensive solutions based 
on this information. Digitalisation is taking place across all 
phases, from drafting to commissioning and operational 
optimisation. Early simulations of the thermo-energetic 
behaviour and computer-aided models for evaluating the 
resulting comfort and user acceptance are the starting point 
for innovative building system solutions. They form building 
blocks of a digital building twin, i.e. a virtual building 
image for planning and operation.

SimXp aims at engineers, project managers and executives 
responsible for research and development, innovation management 
and business development in the construction sector.
