iclimabuilt’s goal is to create an open access ecosystem for developing, upscaling and testing innovations in building envelope materials and technical systems via its 9 Pilot Lines (PLs) to reach Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB) balance. At the same time, iclimabuilt will support and help small high-tech firms to scale up and cope with the continuous rising of technological complexity, assisting in the transformation of research results into innovations.
Within iclimabuilt project, BioG3D will contribute to the design and on-demand production of 3D printed passive components for the improvement of indoor environmental quality, by adapting and upgrading existing facilities, materials and digital tools available under a dedicated Pilot Line. Sustainable, reusable and reconfigurable functional systems that accommodate occupants’ well-being will be developed, by pursing a modular approach to meet the individual requirements of building locations, in terms of interior lighting, acoustics and air quality, by encoding performance-driven rules for the generation of geometric design solutions of discrete subcomponents, which can be reused into multiple spatial configurations. BioG3D will also undertake the in vitro assessment & toxicological analysis of materials with unknown hazard profiles to be developed within iclimabuilt project, that will enhance decision-making throughout the material development and processing activities.
