It was held last Thursday, June 30th, the technical workshop organized by Informest within the Renew School project, entitled "Innovative construction for high efficiency timber requalification".

The workshop was held  in the frame of the V Passivehaus Congress of Friuli Venezia Giulia organized by Regional Agency for Energy and was focused on passive house and on principles, opportunities and solutions for houses with high energy efficiency and was an important event for networking among professionals.


During the last years thanks to innovation it has been gained several solutions for prefabricated timber construction, used also on advanced school renovation. However, the current potential of technical and manufacturing feasibility is not yet exhausted since traditional planning processes, procurement issues and financial schemes hinder their broader application. Solutions for its wider application can come from an  adaptation of traditional approaches supporting the implementation within the existing process framework, up to “game changing” solution approaches, with application of innovative and technological solutions.

During the workshop the Renew school project was presented, and its activities illustrated. In particular it was given an overview of frontrunners involved in the project (Case studies of renovations/constructions of school builldings where timber elements have been used), and of cooperation models applied and financial funds used, with strengths and weaknesses. In addition, Informest experts presented the case of the Italian frontrunner and technical solutions applied.

The project Renew School, funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme, aims to promote the restructuring and energy efficiency of school buildings through the use of an external enclosure system consists of prefabricated modular elements made of wood.
