Maria Saridaki is an Industrial PhD student, working towards new calculation practices on life cycle costing (LCC) at Vandkunsten Architects. Her passion for sustainable constructions motivates her to look for innovative approaches of including life cycle cost aspect in projects of architecture, engineering and construction, leading towards high quality and economic valuable construction projects.
During her master studies in engineering, Maria has worked with Life Cycle Management and Building Information Modelling (BIM). Her master project focused on Integration of LCC into a BIM concept by the development and application of dynamic tools with connection to design models.
During her previous research activities at SBi, Maria has worked closely with the developers of LCCbyg application, which supports the DGNB certification in Denmark.
The industrial PhD project has SBi as the academic collaborator.
The new sustainable building class in the upcoming Building Regulations 2020 is an important driver in achieving the 17 sustainability goals of UN. Sustainable design of buildings is however hampered by weak integration of data across different software tools from independent software vendors. Vandkunsten will in this PhD project investigate how an integrated approach to data exchange between commonly used design software can support a sustainable transformation of design practices that include life cycle costing (LCC)
