SDU Civil and Architectural Engineering receives two research grants from Innovation Fund Denmark and Realdania

Circular Transition of Social Housing: generating environmental, economic and social co-benefits by design 

This project will study the generation of social co-benefits through the circular-economy transition of social housing. The PhD candidate Vibeke Grupe Larsen will be supervised by Professor WSR Nicola Tollin, with co-supervision of Professor WSR Morten Birkved from SDU Life-Cycle and Peter Andreas Sattrup Chief consultant on Sustainability from the industrial partner in the Danish Association of Architectural Firms.

3DWaxForm - Circular Wax Formwork through High-speed Robotic 3D Printing 

This project will develop a novel approach for advanced concrete formworking based on reusable wax material. The work will be supervised by Assistant Professor Roberto Naboni from the CREATE Group and by Asbjørn Søndergaard CTO of the industrial partner Odico A/S, with co-supervision of Professor Christian Veje from SDU Center for Energy Informatics and Associate Professor Ivar Lund from SDU Mechanical Engineering.

The two projects (2021-2023) are part of a larger practice-oriented, interdisciplinary research team – consisting of approx. 15 industrial researchers and their university and business supervisors – supported by Innovation Fund Denmark and Realdania, under the auspices of BLOXHUB

The research team will work on accelerating the shift to the circular built environment, with the purpose of reducing CO2 emissions as well as resource and energy consumption and to minimise environmentally harmful materials and processes, without compromising the quality of the materials and buildings and without generating new environmental and climate challenges.
