The context for this paper is the meeting point of three different phenomenon that are arising at the very early 21st century society. The spread of IT technologies and worldwide economic and energy scenarios require to take advantage of the synergies of may appear among multiple application domains. Since the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive was released in 2002 (Directive 2002/91/EC,EPBD) the energy efficiency in building domain has been a pretty big challenge for all EU Member States and specially for the stakeholders involved in the construction industry. This challenge has been faced, in most of the cases, in a monolithic approach. In the most common scenario, building designers are not aware about the building control strategies that will be applied during the operation time and how the building envelope will perform with them. In parallel, the control engineers do not know about the building thermal inertia and its impact into the control routines. Our work tackles this parading that has been a key factor for unnecessary energy consumptions and users discomfort.
