INDUSTRIALISED DURABLE BUILDING ENVELOPE RETROFITTING BY ALL-IN-ONE INTERCONNECTED TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS
Website: under construction
INFINITE aims at increasing the market penetration of industrialized all-in building envelope kits for the deep renovation, as competitive, reliable, stakeholders-accepted and life-cycle-based sustainable approach contributing to decarbonization of the EU building stock. INFINITE will work to narrow the gap towards the full adoption of an industrialized renovation approach developing a set of multi-user and multi-disciplinary tools, and all-in-one industrialised envelope technologies, based on robust business, meeting the demand side requirements, by keeping the focus on final users and all the stakeholders in the value-chain. The INFINITE development drivers are: (i) cost and timing reduction, (ii) Life Cycle perspective, (iii) design for assembly and disassembly, considering end-of-life residual value and the Construction-Demolition-Waste topics, (iv) low carbon impact materials adoption, (v) stakeholders-centered approach to assure concept acceptance. Moreover, INFINITE will setup an open structured knowledge hub and an organized network of entities as hard-facts based dissemination, for the demonstration of the coupling of digital and industrialised approach.
Thanks to INFINITE, EU construction sector can take the chance to move forward towards a long-lasting decarbonisation of the building stock, exploiting the advantages of the “Renovation4.0” (industrialisation + digitalisation) as new generation of industrialised renovation process. The underpinned ground-breaking technologies, tools and business models, will impact the whole value-chain, being able to trigger the deep renovation market activation. Demo-cases can validate the mentioned Renovation4.0 approach, while the consortium already well-established commercial channels in EU that will facilitate an extensive replication potential and effective results exploitation.
