The Housing prototype is owned by Vinnova-financed ”Smart Housing Smaland”. Its a high-tech facility for the development of innovative solutions for digitizing, construction and housing.

    The test-bed is a fully furnished 2-piece volume-element that could house 2-4 persons. There is an unique opportunity to study one single element of what should form the base in a multi-family wood-based complex.  All possible conditions in construction and housing can be tested in this environment. Digitalization, circular economy and  all sustainable criterias can be addressed in this test bed.

     The test-bed provides a platform for all parties involved, such as wooden-house constructors, float-glass manufacturers, energy and universities / institutes.
