What information is shown here?
The information shown here is based on the active source files uploaded with this building. The table is divided horizontally into a material classification. Vertically, a subdivision is made into the different building shells (“Layers of Brand”).
The first column ‘Totals’ shows the quantities (mass) and the number of products (pieces) per type of material, and the percentage in relation to the other materials used for this building. In addition to this percentage, the weight and volume per type of material are also visible.
‘Layers of Brand’ The other columns show per ‘layer’ of the building, by means of the so-called ‘Layers of Brand’, which material has been used in the building envelope in question, and the percentage in relation to the other materials in this building envelope. In addition to this percentage, the weight and volume per type of material are also visible.
If you have chosen to display the seven material families, the material family is ‘unknown’ if there is no match between the element and the database of materials and products. These elements will appear in the row ‘Unknown’ under the building layers. If you have chosen to display according to a material classification, such as NL-SfB Table 3, materials will not be displayed if there is no match between the element and the database of materials and products.
You can obtain more information about the materials used by clicking on one of the circles. A new screen will open, explaining which materials and products have been used. For example, the material type ‘brick’ can be specified to the materials ‘concrete’ and ‘brick’ and to the products ‘reinforced pillar’ which in turn consists of ‘brick’. You can see in what volume each material occurs. If you have opted for the material classification based on NL-SfB Table 3, you can further open the different types of materials in the column on the left by clicking on a type of material. In this way you can further zoom in on the material classification.
Filter In this overview a filter can be used. In the filter materials can be entered, and only these materials are shown in the table. The search results in the filter can be turned off by clicking on cross.
View By the ‘view-switch’ the material families are positioned horizontally and the building shells vertically. This gives you the same data in a different overview. The percentages now add up in the material classification column.
Source files By clicking on ‘Source files’, a pop-up window appears in which the quality, completeness of information of the active source files is shown.
To gain insight into the products present, it is possible to click on a ‘building envelope’, for example ‘Construction’ or ‘Technical installations’. You will then go to a new screen where you will gain insight into the applied products of this specific building envelope. On this page you can filter by keyword, Classification method (left column) or level (floor).
If a product is selected, you can view more product information for that specific product on the right side of the tabs ‘Material’, ‘Product’ ‘Circularity’ and ‘IFC’. In the ‘Product’ tab you can then add a document to this product, such as a manual, a certificate, warranty statement or a ‘Product Passport’.
