Together with OsloMet, Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) and SINTEF, Staticus is working on a project aimed at reducing the construction industry’s share of greenhouse gas emissions. By substituting aluminum systems with timber and integrating IoT sensors, we seek to decrease the façade’s CO2 footprint to 70-75% and non-renewable energy consumption to 53-56%.
The development of a new product which reduces CO2 emissions and the operational costs of buildings by empowering IoT systems therein. (To create a minimally polluting, automated façade system integrated into a building’s management system).
Staticus is taking part in an international ConTech-type project with Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet), Kaunas University of Technology, Sintef AS.
Staticus is taking part in an international project with Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet), Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) and Norway’s SINTEF, aiming to reduce the construction industry’s share of greenhouse gas emissions and pave the way for sustainable habitation around the world. The project entitled “Developing a more environmentally friendly automated façade system that is integrated into the building’s control systems” (project code no. LT07-1-EIM-K01-003) will help us bring more sustainable timber-based envelope solutions to the construction sector in Europe and worldwide.
Our first partner – OsloMet – is the youngest university in Norway, dedicated to adopting new technologies and developing innovative solutions for the social welfare state in Europe. SINTEF is one of the continent’s largest independent research organisations, involved in thousands of projects each year. Kaunas University of Technology is one of the region’s largest STEM-oriented schools.
This project was funded by the 2014-2021 Norwegian Financial Mechanism Program “Business Development, Innovation and SMEs”. Project amount financed by NorwayGrants: 1 659 888.10 Eur.
According to official statistics, buildings in the EU are the single largest energy consumer, being collectively responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions. These figures encompass the entire life cycle of buildings, which includes construction, usage, renovation and demolition. Given the dire straits of the global environment, it’s safe to say that we could (and should) do better.
