• The European initiative consortium will gather in Venice-Mestre to share the main achievements made in the different work packages since the project kicked off

Two years after the European REZBUILD Project, backed by H2020 programme, kicked off, the leading consortium of the initiative will gather in the Italian city of Venice-Mestre in order to analyse the main advances achieved by the partners in the development of advanced technologies aimed to create an innovative renovation ecosystem for Near Zero Energy Building (NZEB) in Europe.

Between the 5th and 7th of November, the consortium members will have the chance of addressing the main challenges arisen within the initiative and discuss the next steps to pursue goals such as optimize the execution time of the construction works and boost rehabilitation processes using BIM technologies.

The three day event will include different presentations designed to allow the partners to explain the main achievements, opportunities and weaknesses detected in the different work packages that integrate the initiative.

In addition of these sessions, several technical workshops and discussion panels will address the different technological disciplines.

The consortium meeting will also include presentations regarding the three multiscale demo sites created for testing the developments and technologies of the REZBUILD project.

The demo sites are residential buildings located in Madrid (Spain), Oslo (Norway) and Martellago (Italy) and have been chosen to cover 3 of the most usual residential building typologies in Europe and represent the most prevalent European climates (North-Continental, Central-Atlantic and South-Mediterranean).

The REZBUILD Project, that started in 2017 and will continue until September 2021, is driven by a consortium led by Officinae Verdi Group (Italy). The initiative is also integrated by 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), Rimond (Italy), and ZABALA Innovation Consulting.
