Biobased houses in industrialized construction

Project: Research

Description

The aim of the project is to aid the timber house manufactures in their climate adaptation efforts by enabling for biobased products to replace the conventional
fossil-based materials. Building on the efforts of a previous BioInnovation project (FBBB, WP4.2), the aim is to bring biobased walls from feasibility studies to full-scale factory-produced walls. The strategy involves (1) survey of issues relating to implementation, (2) development of concept walls, (3) numerical and experimental analysis and (4) full-scale construction and monitoring of at least one wall under operational conditions. Based on previous studies, the new wall concepts are likely to perform equal to or better than traditional building systems, much due to the moisture buffering capacity of the walls coupled with excellent thermal properties. Further, it is anticipated that the new systems will be favourable with respect to indoor air quality as well as possibilities for renovation, re-use and recycling of materials.
