Taking complexity out of the building site

17 Jul 2019 - Researchers in Europe are developing a new kind of prefabricated energy efficient building façades, equipped with special insulation and solar panels. These solutions are built far from the construction site, in an industrial environment, and can therefore be installed quickly and painlessly for homeowners or tenantsTackling energy consumption in the building sector in Europe is a real necessity, and researchers in many countries are studying the development and dissemination of ... read more

Energy efficiency: adding architectural value to prefab solutions

4 Jul 2019 - Architects don’t usually like prefabricated solutions. But they concede there are upsides, and when time is of the essence, saving the planet becomes the priorityPractical or beautiful? The question doesn’t seem to be relevant when it comes to retrofitting buildings for energy efficiency. Prefabricated solutions are considered to be both efficient and aesthetically pleasing.However, architects don’t usually agree: to begin with, they feel prefabrication limits their ... read more
