The main objective of the project is the development of innovative, sustainable façade elements and partition walls, based on earthen, wooden or cellulose materials as well as optimised, surface modified, cementitious materials, in order to improve the indoor environment with regards to health and occupant comfort.

The elements will be developed for both existing as well as newly constructed residential buildings that strive forward to minimise the energy demand in dwellings. The international consortium consists of 3 research institutes, including the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing BAM, 5 SME’s and 4 industrial partners. With our expertise about climate control of natural building materials we support the material development and –research and design based on the results construction methods.
