AHR Award Goes to BCxA Corporate Member


Semantic Modeling & Tagging

BCxA Corporate Member DLR Group was honored by Project Haystack at the Control Trends Awards Ceremony during the AHR Expo in Atlanta. The award was based on DLR’s adoption of semantic modeling and tagging methodology for smart building design strategies, monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx), and smart energy management.

Project Haystack is a “collaborative community addressing the challenge of utilizing semantic modeling and tagging to streamline the interchange of data among different systems, devices, equipment and software applications.” Project Haystack’s ongoing discussions with ASHRAE (originators of the BACnet standard) and Brick (a Uniform Metadata Schema for Buildings) have also begun to co-develop data strategies for the future as ASHRAE Standard 223P: Designation and Classification of Semantic Tags for Building Data, which provides a dictionary of semantic tags for descriptive tagging of building data including building automation and control data along with associated systems. Ultimately, ASHRAE Standard 223P is intended to be adopted as an ISO standard. For more about how semantic tagging will affect commissioning, see BCxA 2018 Blog article, “Tag, You’re It!”
