Simon: We teamed up with partners along the value chain to create an innovative and sustainable construction solution. Together, we brought it from idea to proof of concept and finally to real-life implementation, combining many of today’s best practices that can drive the green transformation.
Sandra: This project is disruptive in nature. It is a rethink of how we build floor today. To implement the smart design of the floor system, the starting point is: ‘what is the design and minimal amount of products we need to implement to meet the load-bearing requirements?’ We then develop the appropriate product and process to manufacture the solution, double-checking at the end that we met local building codes.
This approach is a radical shift from traditional methods of building. Builders very rarely start from the question of optimizing material use. This way of looking at it revolutionizes the flow of innovation.
