Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: High-performance wooden buildings

Acronym: BUILFROMFOREST
Main Objective: Design of prefabricated modules, transportable by lorry or marine containers, fully infrastructured (water, sewage and electricity),
coated and equipped, capable of being overlapped in height for large volume construction. The modules are transported from the
factory to the final destination, where only a crane and small tools are required for their coupling (‘plug and play’ concept). As an
example, a building with 200 rooms, spread over 10 floors, should be completed in less than 3 weeks with a team of 10 people
(except its foundations).
