Deep renovation technology packages

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Concept:   Today, multi-disciplinary teams from all over the world have to collaborate in order to bring a physical product from idea to market. A professional design tool enabling them to work collaboratively in real-time, directly in 3D would ease this process.   But building a design platform for manipulating and rendering large 3D data in real time for such a wide range of users is an enormous technological challenge.

Before the refurbishment started, the local authority had around 1,500 bedsits right across the city. Known as zero-bed units, they were small – usually no more than 26 square metres – and as they aged, they became progressively less attractive to tenants.   Moreover, the more unattractive the location, the more ‘de-tenanted’ they became. So began a vicious cycle of vacancy, dilapidation and social deterioration.

Concept:   The EU’s building stock is relatively old. Half of all homes in most EU countries were built pre-1970 and before the first thermal regulations.   This is why upgrading the energy efficiency of the building envelope – the physical barrier between indoor and unconditioned environment – is important.

Introduction   3D printing (sometimes referred to as Additive Manufacturing (AM)) is the computer-controlled sequential layering of materials to create three-dimensional shapes. It is particularly useful for prototyping and for the manufacture of geometrically complex components.   It was first developed in the 1980s, but at that time was a difficult and expensive operation and so had few applications.

Concept:   Current architectural and engineering design programmes enable complex and creative designs to be easily and accurately modelled.   Using advanced virtual reality (VR) applications, designers can immersively perceive and interact with their creations.
