Calling all building experts:

Have your say on the future of building certification and renovation with the TIMEPAC Survey

Help TIMEPAC define the next generation of building certification tools, methods and training needed to support the renovation of Europe’s building stock by taking part in the survey

As part of its mission to support Europe’s decarbonisation goals established in the European Green Deal,  the TIMEPAC project is calling on all building experts to take part in its “GETTING READY FOR THE BUILDING RENOVATION WAVE” survey to help identify any obstacles or barriers in the implementation of new Energy Performance Certificates in accordance with the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). 

The EPBD aims to establish minimum energy performance standards and includes tools such as building renovation plans to incentivise the private sector to upgrade the building stock.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) can be an effective tool for identifying which buildings need to be renovated and which measures can be taken. However, to make EPCs more effective, it is necessary to improve them through the use of more reliable data, such as actual energy consumption and performance, and better calculation and simulation tools, such as Building Information Modelling (BIM). Current certificates can be improved by incorporating a Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) and sustainability indicators such as Level(s).

Through this 10-minute questionnaire you can help us define the next generation of building certification tools, methods and training needed to support the renovation of Europe’s building stock.

*The survey is available in the following languages: Catalá, Deutsch, Ελληνικά, Español, Hrvatski, Italiano and Slovenščina.

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process supported by various tools, technologies and contracts involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. Building information models (BIMs) are computer files (often but not always in proprietary formats and containing proprietary data) which can be extracted, exchanged or networked to support decision-making regarding a built asset

Building Renovation Passport (BRP)

Building Renovation Passport (BRP) - consists of a roadmap indicating a sequence of renovation steps over several years instead in one go, with the objective to transform the building into a zero-emission building by 2050. It shall indicate the benefits in terms of energy savings, cost savings, greenhouse emission reductions as well as broader benefits (on health, comfort, resilience to climate change).

Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI)

Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) - is used, a new indicator that assesses the technological readiness of buildings, interacts with their occupants, co-operates with connected energy grids and operates more efficiently


Level(s) - provides a common language for assessing and reporting on the sustainability performance of buildings. It is a simple entry point for applying circular economy principles in our built environment. Level(s) offers an extensively tested system for measuring and supporting improvements, from design to end of life. It can be applied to residential buildings or offices.
