Design & Performance

An example of a Design & Performance project:

Retrofit

A project that would fit within this theme would be around Retrofit, appropriate materials and sound principals for retrofitting existing buildings.

Retrofit is a major market sector and will continue to grow in the coming decades. Retrofit projects have been carried out in the past but there are significant gaps in the knowledge base of existing and future retrofit systems and their performance and market capabilities.

Some current retrofit solutions have led to further complications in building performance and quality of life for building occupants. If your company has an idea around retrofit or something else that would fit within our Design & Performance theme get in touch.

This innovative idea also sits within the following key project themes:

  • Advanced Construction
  • Energy & ICT
  • Environment

 

Here is another example of a Design & Performance project:

Volumetric export
 solutions to enable exports of 3D volumetric building systems

A Scottish company, as part of a UK group, has developed a volumetric building system that can be applied up to 16 storeys. Several patents are held and also granted protection overseas. International interest is very strong with projects already in Middle East and further Middle East projects to come.

To assist in the export into these markets and develop design and performance solutions for the client markets HEI partners would assist through R&D and value engineering for each market sector for the required building regulation and performance targets in each client country and also client specifications.
