The Spanish pilot is located within a new eco-district being built on the site of a decommissioned Mercedes-Benz car factory and that will include residential, office and university buildings. The pilot is about decontamination of heavy-metal polluted soil in the area and the maximum reuse and recycling of the disassembled structures for the new district being built.
Аchieve more than 90% of removal of petroleum hydrocarbons and heavy metals from anthropogenic soil on demolition sites
Increase by more than 40% the recovery of structural members for reuse; and to successfully implement material traceability via wireless sensors
- M6 – M18: development of a BIM-based Digital Twin with advanced features enabling multi-criteria decision-making regarding disassembly and construction protocols
- M6 – M24: on-site soil decontamination with novel bioremediation and nanobubble water treatment techniques
- M12 – M36: deployment of near-field communication wireless sensors for material traceability
- M18 – M42: construction of a prototype structure out of reused and recycled materials from the pilot site
Through the use of BIM-based Digital Twins for selective demolition and end use of existing elements, the buildings are converted into material and element databanks and the “building from a stock” principle will be facilitated. By integrating all three pillars of sustainability into the multi-criteria decision-making tools, the pilot guarantees a more sustainable outcome for the construction.
- fully safe and decontaminated environment for the residents of the new district while minimizing the impact (i.e., pollution and heavy traffic) during the decontamination process
- more economic, and sustainable structures through the use of existing materials and elements
- maintenance of cultural and architectural heritage of the industrial zone by reusing and repurposing the old structures of the site
