“Pre-fabricated facades – niche forever or mass market soon?” expert workshop

The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) together with the two EU funded projects EU-GUGLE and MEEFS will hold an expert workshop on:


Pre-fabricated facades – niche forever or mass market soon?”

  2 November 2015 / Vienna, Austria



There are 25 billion m² of useful floor space built in the EU27, Switzerland and Norway, of which nearly 75% are residential and 25% are non-residential. About 40% of our residential buildings are older than 50 years, with many buildings in use today that are hundreds of years old. The best way to engage in large-scale renovation activities with pre-fabricated facades is to explain step-by step the process, what is at stake (financially, politically, and socially) in each phase, and what is the triple (social, economic and environmental) impact.


The forthcoming event intends to bring together professional stakeholders from the construction and energy sectors to discuss the actual deployment of pre-fabricated facades based on the experiences of the two projects. The event will allow for exchange of views on the proposed innovative technologies, and facilitate networking opportunities and synergies with potential early adopters and users throughout Europe.
