Innovative business models
BERTIM partners will analyse the possibility of increasing the density of existing urban structures by means of adding roof floors. The increase of density is already an urban strategy for sustainability of resources, and to foster this trend the model will allow to building owners to have at their disposal new dwellings to be sold. An investor could also be interested in investing in the renovation in exchange of the new dwellings. The technical social and economic barriers will be analysed, and a technical solution to increase one floor with timber 3D prefabricated modules will be proposed.
