The Internet of Things (IoT) offers great and new opportunities for services for use, operation and maintenance of buildings. Using the technology in a systematic way can, among other things, save energy, utilize the use of buildings and facilities more efficiently, increase operational reliability and reduce operating costs, facilitate business and community planning and give users better opportunities for service and influence their situation as a result. ex tenants. The technology used means that the physical components and networks are linked to data that they continuously supply and consume for digital services.

This project is further based on the feasibility study that linked IoT Reference Architecture according to ISO standard with the new classification system CoClass for built environment. The intention is to integrate with other accepted standards and thereby create a framework that within the project will also be verified against the requirements of builders and property owners and managers, and the need for a comprehensive digital description of construction works. The common framework should be based on standards that are general, open, tested and relevant.

Property owners, consultants, product suppliers, construction and installation contractors with several demand methods to describe IoT systems for different purposes - both requirements and design, production and use. Through a neutral and industry-wide framework, it becomes possible to collaborate between projects, companies and with society at large in an open information flow. Useful data for IoT services can be combined from many sources: open data, house and plant data, etc.

The project is at the forefront to the extent that it intends to apply the latest technology to describe objects digitally in a property. A machine-readable format used in the digital models enables the handling of large amounts of data in rational and innovative ways.
