  3. Deliver a Renovation Simulation & Assessment Toolbox for assessing energy, environmental and techno-economic aspects of the renovation scenarios;
  4. Deliver the Renovation Optimiser and Planner to support the renovation optimised decision making integrating the tools above and increase occupant’s acceptance of deep-energy renovations.

Work Package 4 sets up and proposes the different retrofitting process strategies and the retrofitting improvements.

Objectives:

  1. Design and propose modular construction strategies well-fitted to the RINNO off/on-site selected Modular, Plug-n-Play solutions
  2. Deliver a fast-responsive on-site renovation and monitoring toolkit
  3. Deliver a supply chain and renovation process optimization toolkit
  4. Implement AR “On-the-Job” training services for the efficient and attractive workers training and support
  5. Deliver a “Retrofitting Manager Environment” for managing and optimizing the renovation process

Work Package 5 is dedicated to the development of the RINNO Operational Platform with Augmented Intelligence.

Objectives:

  1. IoT-middleware for the management and control of the buildings;
  2. Algorithms for supporting the benchmarking and performance decisions for the optimal building operation;
  3. Personalized, dynamic and multi-purpose dashboard for visualizing building operational performance;
  4. Marketplace and social collaboration platform for improving the cooperation of the stakeholders at all renovation phases;
  5. Smart contracts and secure transactions for the supply chain;
  6. Introduction of an optional scheme for BPRs through the RINNO logbook.

Work Package 6 focuses on the integration activities, as well as the organisation and execution of the large-scale demonstrations.

Objectives

  1. Deliver the integrated RINNO Suite, followed by a series of acceptance tests for its validation in the pre-pilot site;
  2. Train stakeholders for using the RINNO Suite and its components;
  3. Deploy the RINNO Suite under real conditions at four (4) large demo sites;
  4. Define and evaluate the RINNO offered solutions, under real-time conditions, with the use of a KPIs list;
  5. Prepare a Replicability analysis based on the evaluation findings.

Work Package 7 is dedicated to the RINNO impact assessment and to the innovative RINNO business models exclusively.

Objectives

  1. Analyze different technical and financial references of circular economy procedures & strategies to present the most plausible future benefits from a business modelling perspective.
  2. Perform the impact assessment of RINNO technologies/solution from a circular economy perspective implemented in the business’ strategies in general, and specifically for the demo cases.
  3. Develop the anticipated cost-sharing business models in line with the above circular economy framework.
  4. Elaborate on the appropriate finance models and develop the crowd-equity/ crowd-lending scheme for deep renovation.

Work Package 8 facilitates the implementation of a joint exploitation strategy, on-going assessment, as well as dissemination and exploitation activities.

Objectives:

  1. Develop and implement a strategy for the individual and joint exploitation of the project;
  2. Openly and proactively disseminate and promote RINNO’s progress and results to a wide group of stakeholders;
  3. Raise awareness, build consensus, and create visible/measurable impact to exploit lessons learned and best practices based on the experience of RINNO;
  4. Implement an on-going assessment process to identify issues affecting RINNO’s exploitation;
  5. Align, liaise and promote the activities of RINNO with standardisation bodies, European clusters and complementary initiatives at EU and International levels.

Work Package 9 will facilitate the project execution by introducing project management, ethics managements, intellectual property rights protection and standardisation.

Objectives:

  1. Coordinate the technological and scientific orientation of the project, to ensure the delivery of the project on time and within the budget;
  2. Guarantee high-quality standards at all levels and to guarantee the accomplishment of the objectives;
  3. Manage resources, monitor the overall project performance and manage risks, ethics, and contingencies.
