> RETROFITTING THURSDAYS Industrialisation and prefabrication of building systems

On Thursday 3 December 2015, the strategic platform Brussels Retrofit XL organises a KNOWLEDGE SESSION on INDUSTRIALISATION AND PREFABRICATION OF BUILDING SYSTEMS FOR RETROFITTING.

In an era where speed, accuracy, health, flexibility, ease of use and automatization are getting more important every day, new building methods focusing on industrialisation and prefabrication gain interest. Systems that are predominantly manufactured and assembled in a factory can speed up the renovation process and reduce nuisances, lightweight systems can improve the workability during the renovation phase and components conceived to be assembled and disassembled on site can increase the flexibility during the re-design and use of existing buildings.

This knowledge session discusses the potential of industrialisation and prefabrication techniques in renovation, through cutting-edge research results and practical case studies. There will be ample opportunity for discussion and networking.

Place to be is the Buildwise Brussels meeting center (Avenue Poincarélaan 79) in Brussels. Start at 14:00.
Participation to the event is free, but registration is required before November 27th, 2015 under ‘Upcoming events‘ on this website.
