PLUG-AND-USE RENOVATION WITH ADAPTABLE LIGHTWEIGHT SYSTEMS
Start date: 01.10.2020
Duration: 48 months
Budget: 9.5 M€
The European Research & Innovation project PLURAL funded by the Horizon 2020 programme aims to design, validate and demonstrate a palette of versatile, adaptable, scalable, off-site prefabricated Plug-and-Use kits. The objectives of the project will be achieved through international cooperation of 17 partners from six European countries with overall budget of 9,5 million EUR.
The project partners are detailed here.
A Building Information Modelling (BIM) based platform and a Decision Support Tool (DST) will be developed within the frame of the project to enable the optimal component selection, and integration, best Plug-and-Use kit design, faster and low-cost manufacturing and installation. Renewable energy and smart control systems will be coupled with low environmental impact prefabricated façade components to create the integrated all-in-one Plug-and-Use kits for residential building deep renovation.
The PLURAL concept will be integrated at three different real demo building sites, located in Greece, Spain and the Czech Republic, featuring different climate conditions and heating/cooling needs and user requirements. PLURAL also includes three virtual building demos for simulating and validating the performance and operation of the solutions.
