This project aims to contribute to the circular agenda in the construction industry and help establish a practical method to promote the use of recycled materials in building constructions.
The housing association, Plus Bolig, aims to emphasize sustainability and community by constructing a sustainable Orangery that will serve as a shared meeting place for residents. As the Orangery for Plus Bolig is considered a secondary construction, it is an appropriate project to build a foundation of experience upon.
The project aims to investigate the possibility of addressing the fire-related challenges associated with using recycled materials in new constructions, with focus on the load-bearing structures. The objective is to develop a non-destructive fire engineering method that enables the use of recycled materials in new construction.
The project is carried out in collaboration with Frandsen & Søndergaard K/S, Titan Nedbrydning A/S, Arkitektfirmaet Nord A/S, Plus Bolig, and AAU Build. DBI is the project leader, and the project is funded through WE BUILD DENMARK with resources from the Danish Ministry of Education and Research (Uddannelses- og Forskningsstyrelsen).
The project will run until March 2023.
