BRISE-Vienna - Building Regulations Information for Submission Envolvement
This is another important step on our way to becoming Europe's digitization capital. Digitization is a development that is meant to serve people and to make life easier. It is in our responsibility to design that process in a way that it will provide great benefits for all citizens.
Vienna is a growing international metropolis whose population has risen by around 300,000 in the past decade. This growing population has increased the demand for social infrastructure and led to an increase in the number of building applications, leading to higher costs for the authorities and longer waiting times for applicants. In addition, the complexity of the applicable technical and legal regulations is steadily increasing. Every year around 13,000 building applications are submitted.
The proposed solution of BRISE makes use of the paradigm shift that can be witnessed in the planning sector, changing the construction planning from 2D paper plans towards Building Information Modelling (BIM, 3D-Building Model). A modern ICT solution based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR) and BIM will be developed, increasing the quality level of submitted documents and shortening the approval process. The strongly social and service-related innovation of combining established construction elements with new technological methods will allow non-professionals to understand the impact of a construction project.

The aim of BRISE is to significantly reduce the duration and increase the efficiency of the construction approval process by establishing a BIM-based system that makes use of 3D building models, combined with modern technologies. This system will be able to process BIM-based data provided by applicants, match this with existing, applicable and relevant legal frameworks and give immediate feedback on planned construction projects.
Overall, it is expected that the quality of the building design will improve as well as the quality and quantity of blueprint information while reducing process time and costs. This should also improve the relationship between the building authority of the city of Vienna and the citizens.
