Description of the construction: In this project, VIPs were laid onto fresh cement and held in place with a few anchors to produce prefabricated concrete elements. Due to the special design of the elements, VIPs can be replaced at any time, if necessary. The elements provide a very slim construction with few thermal bridges (U-value = 0.15 W/m²K) and due to the fact that they are prefabricated, installation is facilitated and a high degree of quality assured.

Figure 1: Plan of the house with prefabricated concrete elements. The horizontal and vertical framework necessary for mounting the VIPs is easily recognizable.
Figure 2: Intended design for the prefabricated wall elements. An average U-value of 0.15 W/m²K is achieved with a total thickness of only 27 cm.
