A team from the Centre for Cultural Heritage Preservation (CCHP) and the NGO Palestine Solar and Sustainable Energy Society (PALSSES) visited the Palestinian pilot building in Bethlehem on 30 April 2020 to prepare the heritage building information model for the energy and environmental analyses within the framework of BEEP project.

This visit was made after a meeting of the working group of the BEEP project, which was held on 28 April 2020, where the team discussed the developments in the project, arranged for the upcoming activities, and the potential challenges that the project will face during the work.

The team inspected parts of the building familiar with the components related to all forms of energy in addition to the architectural and mechanical aspects, such as the ventilation, insulation, lighting, and the condition of the building components.

As a result of the field visit, the team suggested energy efficient solutions which will be taken into consideration in developing the 3D model, which helps get the appropriate energy and environmental analyses as a description of the existing condition of the building.

Renovating and making Mediterranean buildings smarter is of utmost importance to reduce the carbon footprint of our homes. BEEP (BIM for Energy Efficiency in the Public Sector) project is implemented under the ENI CBC Med Programme to strengthen the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) – a process supported by various tools and technologies involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places – to enhance energy efficiency in buildings.
