Summary of the technology

The ECON4SD project is specialized in developing and promoting the smart specialization strategies for modern sustainable constructions. Our multi-group team works with national and international partners from academia and industry to develop components and design models for resource and energy efficient buildings, to realize a great modularity, flexibility, adaptability and upgradability of modern eco-structures spanning their whole service life, to develop destruction-free structures and design guidelines of their re-assembly. These will lead to a reduction of total resources-related footprint of buildings and infrastructures.

Details of the Technology Offer


Aiming at modern eco-construction, the ECON4SD works based on the investigation taking into account technical, ecological and economicconstraints imposed by planning, design, pre-fabrication and on-site operations, in-use consumption and emissions, requirements for refurbishment and demolition. The main tasks are to develop:

  • Architectural typologies and constructive principles for easy de- and re-construction;
  • Demountable technologies for components and whole structures;
  • Reasonable modelling & assessment of ageing behavior of materials / structures;
  • Optimization of developed structures based on energy and environmental efficiency;
  • Material and component banks for a complete 3R strategy;
  • Market supply chain strategy through a CE material/component passport;


  • Contribution of a holistic strategy towards a complete eco-construction technology;
  • Reduction of energy and resource consumption and CO2 production;
  • Strengthening of R&D capacities in sustainable construction industry;
  • Supporting to national political development in eco-construction and circular economy;
