Rezbuild’s partners put in common achieved advances after the first year of work

29 october 2018

The consortium of this European project, about Near Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB), has celebrated its 3rd periodic meeting on the occasion of the first anniversary of the launch of the initiative. This meeting, which took place at the facilities of Saint-Gobain Placo Ibérica in Madrid on October 22-23, has served as the stage to share their progress after the first twelve months of work, discuss the challenges which must be faced and determine what the next steps are.

During the first day, the thirteen partners explained the evolution of the different work packages that make up the project. And, during the second day, they visited the different prototypes and facilities of Saint-Gobain Placo Ibérica, and discussed the challenges and risks of the project.

Madrid is an important place in this European initiative, because it is where the Spanish demo site is located, and where tools and technologies developed by the project will be applied. Specifically, in the housing buildings of the neighbourhood of San Fermín, currently with energy rating E. The other two demo sites are in Oslo (Norway) and Martellago (Italy).

The goal of Rezbuild, funded by the Horizon 2020 Programme, is to define an innovative and collaborative renovation ecosystem to achieve near-zero-energy buildings in Europe. For this, it develops rehabilitation processes through a tool that optimizes the execution time of the works through BIM technologies, reducing the cost and maximizing energy savings with different types of innovative solutions and developments.

Tools and technologies developed by the consortium will be applied in the four main types of residential buildings in Europe. This project is aligned with European political strategies about the fight against climate change, the energy transition, the creation of quality and qualified jobs in sectors such as construction and social aspects such as energy poverty.

REZBUILD consortium brings together 13 partners from 5 different countries: Officinae Verdi Group (Italy), Vias y Construcciones (Spain), CARTIF (Spain), ESTIA (France), Comunidad de Madrid (Spain), Saint-Gobain Placo Iberica (Spain), ONYX Solar (Spain), SINTEF (Norway), OBOS (Norway), University of Nottingham (United Kingdom), Exploded View (Spain), Rimond (Italy) and Zabala Innovation Consulting (Spain).
