A Cloud-Based Platform for IFC File Enrichment with Second-Level Space Boundary Topology

Abstract: To facilitate the automatic generation of building energy performance simulation models from BIM data sources and support multiple building designs almost simultaneously in a district environment, a cloud-based platform which uses containerized micro-services for the generation of the required building’s second-level space boundary topology from IFC geometric data, is introduced. The platform uses as input, in a parallel fashion, multiple IFC files, and executes the Common Boundary Intersection Projection (CBIP) algorithm, for the generation of the enhanced IFC files containing the second-level space boundaries of all buildings. The platform utilizes auto-scaling feature that automatically adds and removes CBIP instances depending upon actual usage. In order to test the functionalities of the platform, certain IFC data files have been uploaded to its repository.
