Purpose and goal

The aim of the project is to develop prototypes for building fastener systems inspired by the furniture and interior industry and investigate them together with industry actors.

Expected results and effects

The furniture and construction industry have a lot in common. However, the furniture industry has a larger element of industrial production, which has resulted in lower production costs. Picking up production ideas from other industries can make it possible to radically renew and transform the (wood) construction industry and thus streamline the construction process. Historically, cross-sectoral spin-off effects have been shown to generate success factors.

Planned approach and implementation

A state-of-the-art analysis is performed and discussed with invited partners. The analysis should result in a prototype that provides a high precision assembly in a self-centered manner. The prototype is refined and presented to a larger group of partners. Key values to relate to are: value chains, production systems, products, services and methods. Evaluation should also be performed in the areas of: moisture, strength, fire and dismountability. A consortium will be formed that is interested in developing the potential solutions.
