Aspects such as access to employees, simulation and modelling concepts used together, determination of stakeholders to be interacted while defining work area boundaries and local laws and regulations that affect work areas were listed among priorities.


While addressing to the question "What does Turkey understand when it comes to simulation?" in accordance with its goals increasing the efficiency and quality of work carried out to increase building performance, rendering these work compulsory in certain projects and becoming an authority in related matters were listed as goals of priority.


Within the scope of the foreseen duties and responsibilities; actions such as monitoring the buildings where simulation is carried out, enhancing information on user behaviour, creating a software library to provide software support, and increasing the number of well-versed people in the sector thanks to the new certified trainings hosted by the TTMD Academy, have been given priority.

At the end of the workshop, a consensus was reached on the identification of stakeholders who would experience intersections in their work and the creation of a sector meeting platform to manage the intersection of these stakeholder groups.


IBPSA Turkey will be a union that includes all the simulation work and employees working to improve the building performance by working under the TTMD umbrella. With the support of IBPSA, it is aimed to be the centre of the simulation industry in Turkey and in the Region. In this centre where the right information and training will be presented, bringing together sector stakeholders, establishing a joint work platform and introducing the dynamics of the simulation industry to other sectors are aimed.
