A new system of green building
Design, validate and implement a new green building system to improve the energy efficiency of public buildings
The main objective of IMIP is to support the transition to a low-carbon economy by using bioproducts (wood and cork) for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, with a particular focus on the public construction sector.
The consortium will start building the way towards a low carbon economy in the construction sector, demonstrating the benefits of the innovative, constructive and ecological system developed.
IMIP will create an international network of researchers, professional associations and public entities in the SUDOE region to design a new ecological building system based on wood and cork products.
This system will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the life cycle of construction products.
The result of this project is an interconnected modular system of wood and cork insulating parts to improve the energy efficiency of buildings, including their complete life cycle with mechanical, acoustic, thermal and hygroscopic characteristics.
In addition, a BIM plug-in will be created to be able to analyze the environmental benefits of bioproducts used in construction (carbon storage and substitution effect).
Energy efficiency policies
Improving energy efficiency policies in public buildings and housing through networking and joint experimentation
The lessons learned will be useful for public entities to encourage the use of innovative green building systems to increase energy efficiency in the construction sector during the processes of raw material extraction, industrial processing, use and removal of waste.
Researchers, industries, architects and public entities, among other actors involved in sustainable construction and energy efficiency, will participate in the project by designing, producing and promoting the use of insulating parts.

Innovative Eco-Construction System Based on Interlocking Modular Insulation Wood & Cork-Based Panels
Design, validation and implementation of an ecological construction system based on natural biological materials to improve energy efficiency in public buildings, contributing to the mitigation of climate change.
Modular interconnected wood and cork insulating panel systems can replace traditional systems, generating technical, environnemental and socio-economic benefits for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, through the implementation of networks and joint experimentation.
