ACCEPT: Assistant for Quality Check during Construction Execution Processes for Energy-efficienT buildings

The main purpose of the ACCEPT project is to create a platform which will help minimise errors during construction works and improve the energy efficiency of buildings, through the use of Smart Glasses.

  • 36 months
  • 4.46 million Euros
  • 11 members in the consortium

Today, even the best components for energy-efficient buildings have one major flaw: namely, loss of efficiency through improper use during the building process.

And this is where the ACCEPT project steps in, focusing on minimising losses in the energy performance of buildings as a result of lack of technical knowledge or improper workmanship during construction. This will be achieved partly through the use of Smart Glasses. A series of processes and improvements have been developed and are as follows:

  • Improving the final thermal, acoustic and energy performance of buildings by providing sophisticated tools to ensure the required quality in the final product.
  • Measuring the contribution of each of the essential elements to provide thermal insulation and air tightness.
  • Reducing the energy efficiency gap between design and actual construction work, providing guidelines on how to apply the quality assurance tools.
  • Ability to provide guidelines and methodologies during the actual construction process for the various actors involved in the project.
  • Increasing the efficiency, reliability and productivity of the construction process.
