The Green Instruct Project

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

System Design

  • Optimization of material flow and CDW harvesting
  • CFD for thermal performance and volume optimization
  • Optimized weight and volume (Weight 40-80 kg per panel)
  • Easy to assemble, transport, install, maintain and recycle (15-20% faster installation) Scalable material processing through extrusion
  • Over 70% CDW per weight (on average 30kg of CDW per panel) Adaptable with variable thickness (126-286 mm)
  • Eurocode standard compliant

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

Project Objectives

Efficient, robust, eco-friendly and replicable processes

Cost efficient products and new supply chains

Safe and energy efficient buildings

Comfortable, healthy and productive environment

Sustainability and cost savings through CDW sourced materials & C2C

Project Impact

High CO2 and energy inputs savings during the fabrication and operation processes

High rates of CDWs recycle and reuse during building blocks fabrication

Reentry into production lines with coherent design strategies

Reduction of uncertainty linked to the use of recycled products

Incorporation of the safety-by-design approach
