Ideas of BERTIM will be presented during the forthcoming, 8th edition of ICAE: International Congress on Architectural Envelopes. The paper, commonly prepared by members of project's Consortium (TECNALIA, TUM), entitled "Assessment method for developments in building envelope renovation with prefabricated modules", is strictly connected with BETRIM achievements.
This paper, written by Nagore Tellado, Kepa Iturralde, Thomas Bock and Ignacio Gomis (representatives of BERTIM Partners) is dedicated to explaining of the method for evaluating developing technology. It can be said that for the analyzed case study, this assessment will guide the ongoing research and clarify the approach for future solutions. In the case of BERTIM, it has been pointed out the major needs for achieving the so called BERPM. It has to be noted that this method can be also used for evaluating research proposals within a certain context.
ICAE - International Congress on Architectural Envelops - is one of the most significant, scientific event, gathering experts in the field of construction from various countries. It has been organizing since 24 years by TECNALIA (formerly CIDEMCO), one of the most innovative Spanish enterprises in the area of modern buildings.
