Design workshop #1
London – February 28th, 2018
Design workshop #2
Rouen – March 13th, 2018
These two events enabled the partners to present their intentions regarding the design of the prototypes and to obtain feedback and technical recommendations from professionals such as:
The partners gave a progress update on the development of the prototypes, particularly concerning the testing carried out for the specification of the raw materials and the reflection carried out on the sizing of the prototypes. The discussion between partners and invited professionals focused on:
The SB & WRC project is thus fully in its operational phase, and more precisely in the prototype development phase (semesters 2 and 3), preceding their deployment on pilot sites and their evaluation (semester 4).
For the production of prototypes 1 and 2, which results from a combination of different raw materials (agro-resources and waste), UniLaSalle (leader of prototype 1) and University of Brighton (co-leader of prototype 2) has designed several mini-prototypes to test the material properties and select those with the best characteristics (depending on their composition) for the production of the final prototype.
By the end of October 2018, after having carried out the testing which will allow the universities to refine the design of the prototypes (composition, flammability, density, water absorption, etc.), ESITC Caen, University of Bath and UniLaSalle will have developed their final prototype ready for on-site deployment.
The next project partner meeting, which will take place on June 26th in Brighton, will allow partners to visit the Waste House, which will be one of the prototype deployment sites.
The synoptic diagram below gives an overview of the different phases of the project concerning the definition, design, deployment and assessment of the prototypes more specifically:
The SB&WRC project is supported by the European program Interreg VA France (Channel) England and receives financial support from the ERDF.
