Management Summary

The BIM-SPEED library is an online database of components for building renovation. The components include parameters which are usable for running energy performance and sustainability (LCA and LCC) analyses.  The database is available at

Use Case Definition

Aim and scope

The aim of the BIMSPEED Library is to offer construction building stakeholders a catalogue of the most common BIM objects for building renovation, such as the components used for the building envelope (insulation materials and panels, facades and ventilated facades, windows, external doors), the HVAC systems (Water Heating System, Air/Water Conditioning System, Small VRF, Multisplit, Ventilation) and the DHW system. Each dataset is composed of a set of parameters useful for running energy performance and sustainability assessments, supporting the renovation design and the decision-making process.


The parameters included in the renovation objects are referred to the respective EN or ISO standard. Some examples are: the fire class which is referred to EN 13501-1:2019; the energy class, which is referred to the European Directives depending on the considered HVAC and DHW component (such as “Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1254/2014”); the LCA and LCC data, which are referred to ISO 14040, ISO 14044, EN.
