SINTEF Community Architecture and Constructions
Architecture and Constructions
We possess expertise in architecture and building techniques, building processes, housing, the built environment and society.
The main theme of the SiteCast project is "increased competitiveness for in-situ casting of concrete constructions".
The vision of Sharing Neighbourhoods is digitalization towards a socially inclusive and caring neighbourhood. We will investigate the effects of digital collaborative sharing platforms on the social interactions in neighbourhoods, and the new economic models that these platforms enable in the neighbourhoods.
Researchers seek living quality in high-density housing
In Norway, apartment blocks are being built as never before, leading to a housing densification that challenges our ability to create habitable spaces – both indoors and out. So, what can we do to guarantee living quality?
NTNU will lead European sustainability project
Through the Research Centre on Zero Emission Neighbourhoods (FME ZEN) in Smart Cities, NTNU has received funding from the EU to research sustainable plus energy neighbourhoods in Europe. SINTEF and OBOS are partners.
