Sustainable Building Technology
Never before have social issues been so challenging! Challenges, such as climate change which is leading to the energy transition or industrialisation in the construction industry which will result in increased digitalisation -these challenges demand that the market provide new technologies and business models. And while the issues are all the more challenging, the expected changes are generating major opportunities for innovative products and completely new services.
The Saxion research group – Sustainable Building Technology and Material is, therefore, focusing its energy on providing methods and a resources such as digital tools. In doing so, we facilitate the reduction of construction-related greenhouse gas admissions during the construction and operational phase, combat climate change and support the market power of our project partners.

The insights and developments are meant to encourage local market entities to adopt and implement new products and services. In this way, the research group focuses on the interaction between the building envelope (materials), users and installations with a healthy indoor climate as a prerequisite.
The spectrum of existing skills and tools in the areas of environmental technology, architecture, building physics and installation technology provide the means to address cross disciplinary challenges. As such, the team has been involved in projects including: KONKREET (Raak MKB), BouwTex (Raak MKB) and THEAC-25 (TechForFuture).
