Task 2.3 “BERTIM prefabricated modules’ specifications” defines the general requirements of the prefabricated modules to be designed on WP 3, Task 3.1. The technical design to be done on Task 3.1 will follow the specifications and requirements that result from the work down on this Task 2.3.
Four different products will be developed in the BERTIM project for the energy renovation of the targetable buildings typologies defined: 2D module with insulation, 2D module with insulation + installations (or services), 3D residential module and 3D installations module.
The building branch and construction works are influenced with a relatively high degree of legislations, regulations and policies. Technical requirements on the EU construction marked are from an EU perspective harmonized. But on a national scale is the applying of EU building standards full of national nuances. The design standards allow a lot of national applications that influence the design buildings structures.
Within the BERTIM project Partners have analysed the differences in legislation and identified where national choices are made in the Eurocodes for the BERTIM countries.
