The Horizon 2020 funded project AZEB (Affordable Zero Energy Buildings) aims to achieve significant construction and lifecycle cost reductions of new NZEB’s through integral process optimisation in all construction phases. Optimising construction processes to fully integrate available solutions in the areas of process, technology and contracting is seen as the largest potential in lifecycle cost reduction. The project will create a common methodology for cost effective NZEB.
The main steps of the AZEB project are to:
- evaluate available experience and solutions;
- create a common methodology for cost reduction;
- apply the methodology to demonstration projects;
- finalise the methodology including lessons learned;
- disseminate the results.
The project will pave the way for the process and organisational innovation in construction, to enable significant cost reduction and solid market acceptance of NZEB’s.
