1   1.       RetrofitBIM Resarcher Links Workshop (April 2016), funded by British Council (£32K): This workshop focused onhow Housing Retrofit focused Building Information Modelling (ReBIM) can address key existing housing challenges in: environmental sustainability (energy efficiency, CO2, lifecycle cost); social sustainability (health and quality of life); and physical sustainability (earthquake / flood resilience). The predicted real benefits of BIM for building owners and occupants can be reaped at the maintenance stage, but current focus is on new design and construction instead, even in the UK. Collaboration and communication tools, common standards, protocols and methods are needed to examine and simulate what–if analysis of various housing scenarios.
2.       Heritage Building Information Modelling and Smart Heritage Building Performance Measurement for Sustainability (October 2015- October 2017) funded British Council through Institutional Link Programme, £225000 for two years. This project examines how “Building Information Modelling” (BIM) could be developed to address the challenges of the Heritage Sector (HBIM) in terms of smart heritage building performance measurement for Sustainability. This Project: is developed as an international collaborative HBIM project employing UK and Egyptian research and expertise in: 1) state of the art data collection and documentation (using laser scanning, thermography, pressure testing, with long term real-time low-cost sensor systems installed in selected occupied Heritage buildings in Egypt), 2) analysis and planning online; 3) Post Occupancy Evaluation; 4) targeted heritage specific and sensitive refurbishment to meet the demands of climate change while preserving cultural values and enhancing quality of life; 5) This research can also assist and inform a future planned GPRS  for Heritage, refurbishment & Post Occupancy Evaluation, for which there are few if any exemplars
3.       HeritageBIM Workshop (March 2015) funded by British Council (£40K): This workshop focused on how “Heritage Building Information Management and Modelling” (HBIM) necessarily differs from the commonplace applications of BIM to new construction. Trends in Heritage focused Building Information Modelling and Collaboration for Sustainability, funded by British Council through researcher links programme, £40000 for the workshop held in 13-16 March 2015 in Luxor. I organised and run the workshop in partnership with University of West England, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Cairo University and British University of Egypt.
4.       MAPS-LED Project (Horizon 2020) (April 2015- April 2019): the research project aims to examine how Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3) can be implemented, according to the new agenda of Europe 2020, by incorporating a place based dimension.It considers local needs and opportunities driving regional policy interventions not only to emphasize “Key Enable Technologies”, but also to underpin local innovation process – tacit knowledge, embedded social networks, innovative milieu. The project intends to apply a Multidisciplinary Approach to Planning of S3 in a prospective to enhance Local Economic Development (MAPS-LED). The MAPS-LED starts from place-based framework to include two important drivers: 1. Cluster policy and cluster-based analysis, 2. Innovative milieu in terms of local value chain based on the urban-rural linkages. The MAPS-LED will be built to connect three important key-factors around S3: Governance – in terms of cluster policy; Localization – in terms of place-based approach; Territorial network – in terms of innovative milieu based on urban-rural link. The S3 in a MAPS-LED perspective will be configured as “designated areas”, overcoming the constraints determined by the locally-bounded concept of the “district” through the rationale of the networks and flows activated by governance dynamics. The core of this network regards: 1. innovation approaching the S3 concept through a spatial planning practice (city-region and S3); 2. Innovation in assessing the potential S3 (cluster policy and territorial milieu).
5.       Design4Energy (October 2013-October 2017):UK Government’s BIM task group promotes BIM use in level 2 in the UK construction industry for energy efficient building design and more broadly for sustainable design, construction and facilities Management. However, interoperability is the biggest challenge for level 2 and level 3 BIM implementation to facilitate sustainable design and construction through collaborative BIM. Interoperability via neutral environments such as IFC is critical to provide a comprehensive specification of the information exchange throughout the AEC/FM project lifecycle, globally, across disciplines, and software applications. It does entail a common perception of the business processes and the information required for exchange and sharing through this cross-organisational business processes. However, the interoperability schemas like IFC do not capture the ways in which information is created and shared by practitioners. Use of IFC compliant BIM tools is disadvantaged by the lack of definition of specific exchange requirement by actors or stakeholders.  In this EU funded research, as a respond to the interoperability challenge, IDM (Information Delivery Manual) as a method will be utilised for the interoperability specification development for the Design4Energy collaborative design platform that aims to enable stakeholders to consider the building lifecycle issues in a collaborative manner such as building performances analysis, energy efficiency and neighbourhood level issues for the sustainable building design. Thus, I aim to develop the interoperability specification framework using IDM for BIM enabled cross-organisational business processes and stakeholders to collaborate and exchange information intensively at the early design stages through a streamlined cross-organisation business process
6.       Commercial Local Urban Districts (October 2012 –October 2013) : to explore the potential of a new tool for renovating degraded public spaces and improving the attractiveness and accessibility of deprived urban areas by focusing on the high potential of local commercial activities. The exploration is oriented to the implementation of an innovative tool: CLUDs, Commercial Local Urban Districts, aimed at emphasizing the strategic role of small retails -handcraft and typical food- in reinforcing the sense of community, reducing transportation costs andcontributing tothe creation of attractive urban environment, thus producing increase of privateinvestments. The CLUDs are designated areas, reflecting the rationale of EconomicOpportunity Zones. In particular, the thematic specification of the CLUDs is related tolocal small retail associations that can be occurred on typical local production. Theimplementation of the programme is based on a networking of four EU universities(Reggio Calabria, Salford, Uppsala, Rome) and two USA universities (Boston andSan Diego), which all hold the leading positions in planning education, training andresearch in their countries. Partners will exchange staff members, Early stage and experienced Researchers, around yearly seminars/meetings, workshops, and a finalinternational symposium. The core of this network activity regards: Jointresearch andtraining activities on two main topics - public/private partnership (PPP) and urbanregeneration; an international symposium on PPP in urban regeneration process
7.       BIM Adoption and Implementation via Knowledge Transfer Partnership (January 2009- January 2011): The KTP project aims not only to implement BIM and therefore assess the degree of the successful implementation, but rather to position this within the context of value-adding offerings that can help the partner architectural company place itself at the high-end knowledge-based terrain of the sector. The KTP adopts a socio-technical view of BIM implementation in that it does not only consider the implementation of technology but also considers the socio-cultural environment that provides the context for its implementation. Within this context change management and adoption strategies will be a challenge. The KTP will enable the company to establish itself as the vanguard of BIM application giving them a competitive edge because BIM can enable the intelligent interrogation of designs; provide a quicker and cheaper design production; better co-ordination of documentation; more effective change control; less repetition of processes; a better quality constructed product; and improved communication both for the company and across the supply chain. The impact of the KTP will be also to improve the process at every level and stage: eliminating the risk of calculation, misinterpretation of design, improve communication, provide interoperability between stakeholders and, ensuring control and sharing of documentation. This is because BIM is a foundational tool for implementing an efficient process and invariably leads to lean-orientated, team based approach to design and construction therefore BIM will allow the company to demonstrate the entire building life cycle including the construction and facility operation during the design phase
8.       Knowledge Intensive Regeneration for Improving Sustainable Communities (October 2009-August 2010): aim of the research is to use BIM in Regeneration through the MediaCity Case Study Project in order to measure to the extent to which BIM can support the creation of sustainable communities and community engagement and localism and to improve understanding and awareness towards the establishment of a new field coined ‘digital regeneration’, that will consider a Regeneration Information Model (RIM) augmented by BIM through the MediaCity Project to tackle regeneration aspects holistically in an integrative manner, leading to achieving knowledge society and cities.
9.       SURegen Project (October 2007-October 2012): EPSRC funded Project for development of Integrated decision Support System for Sustainable Urban Regeneration, Project budget is £2 327 051 for four years starting October 2007 to 30 September 2011. I have involved in the project as a co-investigator.  The overall aim of the SURegen consortium is to undertake research to develop a prototype Regeneration Simulator Workbench (RSW) that meets the decision-making challenges that Sustainable Urban Regeneration (SUR) poses, i.e., multiple stakeholder interests, complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity. It will form a multi-perspective collaborative digital workspace providing a learning laboratory and library of good practice for regeneration actors. Past experience shows that 'simulation' of SUR activity requires an open-ended, process-based, learning and gaming-like experience.
10.    VEPS Project (January 2005- August 2006): The VEPS (Virtual Environmental Planning System) project is an INTERREG IIIB funded project undertaken by a European Consortium in North-West Europe. The goal of the project is to share technical advances in 3D visualisation, ICT applications to promote public consultation, environmental modelling, data collection and use for e-planning in territorial development in North-West Europe. My research is the extension from the INTELCITIES project. I will be mainly focusing on the data modelling, integration and automation for the laser scanned data for the building and urban data integration for the VEPS system such as defining IFC and IFG information from the laser scanned data by means of object recognition approach, which will provide real world information to the building and city systems at standard formats.
11.    International Review of UK Engineering Showcase (November 2004):Within the built environment, the use of the 3D laser scanner enables digital documentation of buildings, sites and physical objects for reconstruction and restoration. It also enables the creation of educational resources within the built environment, as well as the reconstruction of the built environment. The use of the 3D scanner in combination with the 3D printer provides the transformation of digital data from the captured CAD model back to a physical model at an appropriate scale – reverse prototyping. The use of these technologies is key enablers to the creation of new approaches to the ‘Whole Life Cycle’ process within the built and human environment for the 21st century.
12.    INTELCITIES Project (January 2004 –December 2005) it is an EU funded project undertaken by European researchers and practitioners in the built and human environment as well as in the IT industry. My main duty is to build a concept nD modelling system of urban and building data integration system: 3D laser scanning technology for built and human environment is investigatedin order to develop virtual reality models of the built environments for environmental and context analysis, planning and generating CAD models from VR models. Furthermore, integrating with various other systems such as GIS, virtual environment displays, and nD modelling database to enhance the refurbishment process for the regeneration of cities such as Manchester.
13.    The DIVERCITY Project (October 2001-December 2003): (it forms the main part of my PhD study, started on this project after the completion of MSc in October 2001 and concluded in October 2002) DIVERCITY is a large project in the area of construction IT undertaken by a European consortium of researchers and practitioners from the construction industry; it is the acronym for Distributed Virtual Workspace for enhancing Communication and Collaboration. DIVERCITY aims to supply a shared virtual construction design and briefing environment that enables the construction industry to better undertake the client briefing and design review phases of a project.
The DIVERCITY system consists of six components: Client Briefing, Lighting, Acoustic, Thermal and Heating Simulations, Visual Product Chronology, lastly Site planning & Analysis, how each of them handles different aspects of a construction project in a construction supply chain and how they complement each others to constitute a seamless integrated computer environment for the sake of excellence of briefing and design and construction planning.
14.    Integrated Computer Environment Away Forward to Better Implementation (May 2001-October 2001): (it is the MSc dissertation research subject). This study proposes an integrated framework for construction planning and design that has high buildability rate; the integrated computer environment is capable of exchanging information across the construction disciplines, design visualization, generating and scheduling planning tasks and construction simulation. Basically once designer upload the design into object-oriented central project database, any of the other participants can request the VRML view of the design to understand it visually and easily, planner generate the planning lists from the central database and schedule them by adding dependencies, durations consecutively subject to the documentation available to the planner. By combining the VR tool with the schedule, construction simulation will be able to be obtained belonging to any period of construction, which will crucially help the participants decide on the most buildable design and applicable construction planning.
