The Green Instruct Project

prefabrication for refurbishment from a modular perspective by way of a universal building block with customization potential

The Green INSTRUCT Mission

prefabricated modular wall panel
made from Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW) (over 70% of net weight)
incorporates Green Wall technology for the treatment of grey & storm water
improved acoustic and thermal performance
multiple functionalities
reduced weight
