FOSTERS RENEWABLE MATERIALS

The use of local renewable building materials (timber) – preserves the quality of life in rural areas, safes jobs and boosts the local economy. Its life cycle gives timber a competitive edge that is difficult to match: It is produced in the forest, its processing does not consume many resources, and at the end of the useful life it can even be used as fuel and energy source.

»School renovations: Quick – affordable – green and healthy«

Our mission is to downsize the energy use of schools significantly. At the same time create and secure comfortable and healthy conditions for the pupils and teachers. This should be done by school renovations using quick and sustainable technologies like prefabricated timber elements for the constructions and renewables for the energy supply. This will be reached by transfer know-how and promote prefabricated timber elements, intelligent ventilation, shading and renewable energy systems - all logical solutions of school renovations. We will facilitate networking, exchange and training activities between research, companies, school owners and financiers.
