ProGETonE

New solutions for more comfortable, efficient and seismic-safe homes

15 European entities working together in the innovation project ProGETonE to deliver new ways to renovate buildings, by increasing their seismic safety, drastically reducing the energy consumption, while keeping a user-centred approach.

Do you missed the ProGETonE webinars’ cycle?

We present you a short summary of the different webinars published so far in the framework of the ProGETonE webinars’ cycle. Just in case you missed any of them…

Follow the installation of ProGETonE exoskeleton in Athens pilot

The next sequence of images shows the impressive progress of the exoskeleton deployment in our Athens’ pilot.

Interview with our Athens pilot development team

We want to share with you an interesting #video about the progress of our pilot in Athens to see in first person the evolution of the #seismic renovation of our pilot #building

The consortium developing the action is integrated by universities, technical consultants, manufacturers, SME’s, public authorities and associations from 8 countries.

NEW “EXOSKELETON” TO UPGRADE SEISMIC SAFETY

The project develops new external structures that are able to support earthquakes in line with current regulations. That means a great upgrade for most of buildings in Mediterranean seismic zones, where the existing stock is too often in unsafe conditions. This new structure will support the additional high performance envelope, in terms of energy savings, renewable energy and comfort systems, as well as the different design possibilities (balcony, sunspace or extra living space).

ENHANCED USER EXPERIENCE

The holistic solution includes the focus on the users’ needs, offering different possibilities for the homeowners to increase the safety and energy performance. Therefore, the targets can be reached by the integration of a balcony, a sunspace (extra space, non heated or cooled, so physically separated from the living space) or extra living space (the space addition in the façade implies the enlargement of the living area, so extra space and extra building value), according to users’ preferences and investment capacity.

ENERGY SOLUTIONS

Energy targets are ambitious in ProGETonE project, which pretends to be aligned with European climate targets. In this sense, a high performing envelope is a must (insulation, high performance windows, airtightness), altogether with on-site energy generation (PV modules as a basis and wind turbine as an option), looking for net zero energy balance. The retrofit needs to provide high indoor conditions, so efficient ventilation is also included.

MODULAR INSTALLATION

New integrated solutions will be developed, using the technologies already existing in the market. Different materials, fixation systems, prefab modules and mounting solutions will be studied to come up with an optimized solution that can rapidly be mounted, so as to decrease substantially construction costs.
