Metabuilding Labs

Zero energy, zero emission buildings

Description

To reach the COP21 goal of nearly-zero energy, zero emission buildings MBLabs Labs strives to unleash the innovation potential of the SMEs of the Construction sector by lowering the entry barriers to test innovative solutions in a netowrk of testing facilities in RTOs and Living Labs in 13 countries, most EU member states (ES, FR, BE, IT, DE, TR, UK, LU, PL, SE, HU, AT, IE) allowing a adirect feedback from the end-users during the final development stages. 

CARTIF will lead the WP4 devoted to the design, building, commissioning and replication across Europe of 10 O3 Building Envelope Testbench (standarized, replicable, affordable, Digital Twin enabled): first fully replicable, standarised, cost-effective Open Source/Open Data/Open Access Building Envelope Testbed enabling virtual testing and made available (co-funded) to some of the project partners. 

Objectives

  • To unlock potential, enhance critical mass and internationalisation, improve market readiness, product competitiveness and market impacts of European construction SMEs.
  • To fully implement the integration of end-users/society and the natural environment in a new mainstream EU innovation pathway and related performance tests/certifications.
  • To help building up a future-proof, upgradable, competitive, sustainable and indusive European innovation Ecosystem and OITB for the Built Environment industrial sector, managed by a new, sustainable METABUILDING association, closely linked to the ECTP.
  • To harmonize and upgrade lab test framework and facilities in a holistic set of adapted services for a better readability of envelope materials technical characterization adapted to the new smart generation of technologies.
  • To develop a standardized, high quality, affordable, replicable, Open Source, Open Access, Open Data 1:1 scale, real conditions testbed.

Actions

  • O3BET requirement and specification definition. 
  • Design of the O3BET test bed for envelope components testing under real conditions at 1:1 scale. 
  • Building, comissioning and replication of 9 more 03BETS acros Europe. 
  • Development pf a digital twin for the O3BET. 
  • CARTIF testing laboratory will be integrated in the Metabuilding Labs Open Inoovation Test Bed (OITB) European network. 

Expected Results

CARTIF will have the first of the 10 O3BET wall testing facilities of the project, which want innovative SMEs to test their envelope components (windows, solar panels, opaque walls with innovative insulation, curtain walls, roofs and greens, etc.) real operating conditions, but unlike tests in real buildings, the interior operating conditions will be perfectly controlled. All the physical variables related to the performance of the tested envelope element (temperatures, humidity, wind, radiation, etc.) will be monitored in real time,integrating with the BIM design of hte installation, giving rise to a digital twin that will greatly simplify measure the integration work of the new solutions to be tested.
