Abstract

H2020 project PLURAL (Plug-and-Use Renovation with Adaptable Lightweight Systems) proposes prefabricated, modular and adaptable lightweight façade systems for rapid renovation of existing buildings providing high-performance, cost-effective and fast renovation solutions. This paper presents the early stage technology concepts of three different core systems representing Plug-and-Use (PnU) building envelope kits. The PnU kits couple the lightweight façade module concept with ecological coating materials, integrated energy systems such as photovoltaics, heating, cooling, and ventilation. The paper describes in detail technical solutions of three innovative core systems and presents real and virtual demonstration buildings. Also shows calculated energy performance for real buildings when one of PnU kits is applied for renovation.
