Funding from Vinnova SEK 30 000
Project duration December 2016 - June 2017
Status Completed
Venture BIO Innovation - strategiska projekt
Call Pre-studies to develop new "Innovation Projects" within BioInnovation

Purpose and goal

The goal of the study is writing a project application for to develop a concept of appealing functional facade systems for higher houses in urban areas, thereby increasing the market for wooden facades. The facade system will be characterized by great architectural space, long maintenance intervals, competitive cost and environmental profile. The wood´s positive forces will be combined with new methods of manufacturing, finishing, assembly and sensory monitoring. The goal is a façade system with good aesthetics and longevity, 20-year maintenance interval is one milestone.

Expected results and effects

The breakthrough is a concept with a defined set of requirements, significant technical functions that meet society and builders´ needs and desires and uses smart sensors, both during production and during the use stage for good control. The market potential is great, both nationally and internationally, demographic changes, demand for multifamily. The hypothesis is to be able to compile and combine known knowledge in a way that meets the requirements of a competitive facade solution for large buildings.

Planned approach and implementation

Through regular Skype and telephone meetings, we have worked out an application with eight work packages. On February 9, we had a physical meeting at Lindbäck in Piteå.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
