Design and construction of two prototypes of instrumented models

After a year of working on the project, the design action begins to take shape. We have been working on defining experimental prototypes on a real scale and how we will build them. The two prototypes will be different and will respond to the demands and types of construction used in each region. One will be built in Tarbes and the other in Sant Cugat.

We are working on expanding the construction systems that we will use to be able to start work in February. Prototypes will incorporate a lightweight concrete wall system with sunflower peel. In Tarbes we will use projected concrete and in Sant Cugat we will use small and large format blocks. In addition, we will also use the pith as an insulating material to obtain enclosures with a high thermal performance.
