The general purpose of this research project is to create a Construction Building Guide for professionals and technicians that could be applied in all climatic zones of Italy by introducing flexibility issues as a new standard. The first part of research is focused to design a prototype of low-cost prefabricated apartment block. The building should include some concepts as: efficiency, flexibility respecting changes in the nuclear family, modularity, high-energy performance and, at the same time, high quality of life and low environmental impact. Moreover, according to family needs, flexibility should allow modifying a dwelling surface and internal functionality by joining together rooms or service without limits on the part of plant engineering. The paradigm of flexibility is strictly linked to modularity and prefabrication issues, so the choice of glue-lam timber system with sandwichpanels appears the best compromise. In the second part, the hygrothermal performance and dynamic thermal characteristics of building components and junction details was simulated and verified for three main Italian climatic zones, based on: UNI 6946:2008, UNI 13788:2003, UNI EN ISO 13786:2008 standards.

Abstract

The general purpose of this research project is to create a Construction Building Guide for professionals and technicians that could be applied in all climatic zones of Italy by introducing flexibility issues as a new standard. The first part of research is focused to design a prototype of low-cost prefabricated apartment block. The building should include some concepts as: efficiency, flexibility respecting changes in the nuclear family, modularity, high-energy performance and, at the same time, high quality of life and low environmental impact. Moreover, according to family needs, flexibility should allow modifying a dwelling surface and internal functionality by joining together rooms or service without limits on the part of plant engineering. The paradigm of flexibility is strictly linked to modularity and prefabrication issues, so the choice of glue-lam timber system with sandwichpanels appears the best compromise. In the second part, the hygrothermal performance and dynamic thermal characteristics of building components and junction details was simulated and verified for three main Italian climatic zones, based on: UNI 6946:2008, UNI 13788:2003, UNI EN ISO 13786:2008 standards.
