Case Study: Ecostruct

BECCI Project

Ecostruct proposed a new method of assembly for timber frame walls, with the potential of  reducing cold bridging in the structure and providing better thermal performance. However, Ecostruct needed support with thermal and product design capability, to research and evaluate the idea.

 

Support Ecostruct Required:

  • Thermal evaluation of the proposed idea
  • Market assessment - if the thermal evaluation is positive
  • Product design and testing
  • Exploitation (e.g. protection, partnering, marketing)

Support Delivered by BECCI:

  • Thermal comparison assessment
  • Target market identified
  • Product installation method identified
  • Potential partners identified

The Results:

  • Savings of 10-12% heating energy in buildings
  • Ecostruct are encourages to build a prototype and test/evaluate the mechanical strength
