Biolan, Modular Architecture by AmetsLab

Labels: Spain Construction

AmetsLabAmetsLab Modular Architecture Eco-technological SL is a new technology based company set up in 2009 by MetrĂ³poli Foundation and Tecnalia after working together for several years on projects involving intelligent territories and energy efficiency in buildings. Its project, Biolan, puts forward a new way of building, aiming for zero energy, zero water and zero waste. Thus, AmetsLab specialises in high efficiency in buildings and low environmental impact in the areas of energy, water and waste. It has developed an industrialised and modular construction process.

Modular construction consists of three dimensional finished modules which are produced in a factory, transported to the constructions site in trucks and assembled in situ with minimum impact on the surrounding environment.

Determinants

Barriers:

  • High cost and complexity of transporting modules.
  • Difficulties of changing the construction paradigm (architects, users, etc).

Drivers:

  • Less resource consumption.
  • Reduced lead time due to the industrialised and modular construction process.
  • Waste reduction because of modular construction process.

Sustainability

The building generates the energy it needs to work using renewable energies. Furthermore, it will minimise water consumption, reusing grey water and by an intelligent use of rain water. At the same time, it is optimising waste treatment during construction phases, life time and deconstruction.

Thus, the apparatus has the aptitude in a exclusive city at a special when finasteride online sent directly to the house buy propecia and send it to those who wanted to spot.
