Certification of BERTIM modules is intended to attest timber structural systems achieving common use in retrofitting buildings described in BERTIM project. This certification is based on a technical description, which respects the actual regulations in Europe. The building retrofitting modules for BERTIM have to be validated considering all of the points in the repository: 2D modules and 2D modules with installations.
The BERTIM prefabricated modules for building façade retrofitting, as well as the BERTIM building renovation holistic approach, will be tested in 3 building demonstrator, two real, in Charité sur Loire (France) and Oslo (Norway) and one virtual, in Madrid (Spain) managed by the partners POBI, Omsorgsbygg Oslo KF and EMVS respectively.
Tecnalia´s full scale experimental facility KUBIK has been the first demonstrator for BERTIM modules where they have been installed in order to make a validation of the new envelope made of timber to refurbish existing building prior its implementation in an existing building.
