FA 1.2 Utilisation of concrete in low energy building concepts

Objective:
To establish the basis for concrete to be an insulating and energy preservative material
Project manager: Olafur Wallevik
Disciplinary responsible: Adjunct professor Inger Andresen
International advisor: Otto During, CBI, Sweden

The project included the following activities:

  • Case studies on high energy efficient buildings using concrete as passive thermal mass or activated thermal mass
  • High insulating concrete "NanoCon"
  • Environmental calculation (LCA) of a concrete-based roof construction (Passivhous)
