Penners, Jorgi (author)
The transverse stability of timber terraced houses can be provided by CLT stability walls where decoupled timber terraced houses are preferred to meet acoustic requirements leading to rather large thicknesses for the CLT stability walls and many large connections for anchorage to the foundation. The main goal of this research was to investigate...

Consider a random vector y = Σ <sup>1/2</sup> x, where the p elements of the vector x are i.i.d. real-valued random variables with zero mean and finite fourth moment, and Σ <sup>1/2</sup> is a deterministic p × p matrix such that the eigenvalues of the population correlation matrix R of y are uniformly bounded away from zero and infinity. In...

The Netherlands is grappling with a substantial housing crisis, marked by an estimated shortage of 380,000 houses. To address this issue, an annual creation of 100,000 new housing units is deemed necessary. However, the current construction rate stands at only 70,000 houses per year, indicating a considerable gap in resolving the housing crisis....

Climate is changing. The average temperature on earth is rising due to excessive emissions of greenhouse gasses such as CO2. In the meantime the economy is a linear economy where a produced from exhaustive materials are consumed and turned into waste. In order to fight climate change and exhaust the earth less the greenhouse gas emissions need...

Currently, the building industry contributes to up to 50% of climate change. A way to reduce the impact is by replacing current building materials with more environmentally friendly materials, such as timber. Engineered wood products, such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, have increased strength, stiffness, and stability which enables...

With the building and construction sector accounting for a significant portion of final energy use and emissions, and society’s increasing focus on environmental awareness and improvements, the impor- tance of sustainable construction has never been greater. The utilisation of timber in construction offers clear sustainability benefits and has...

The construction industry contributes significantly to global emissions. In response to the growing concern about climate change, new methods are being developed to reduce these emissions. Building with timber is one such approach, as it can be CO2 neutral if reforestation is practiced. Timber is a lightweight and flexible material compared to...

This thesis report provides an analysis of the structural behavior of façades made of CLT panels with openings. These openings will have a significant influence on the transfer of forces in the panels, as well as the stiffness of the façade. The connections required to transfer the forces between the panels are designed. Deformations of the...

The Netherlands has faced rapidly increasing housing prices over the previous years. As a counter measure, the government is aiming to increase the construction of new houses from around 70 thousand annually to 100 thousand annually, to achieve 900 thousand new houses by 2030. At the same time the world is facing a climate crisis and the...

ReCoNet is a housing complex which is designed to reconnect in three scales: Marco, Meso and Micro. The composition of ReCoNet is designed around the concept of a recycling community. Taking social, ecological and economical sustainability as its key point, ReCoNet aims to create a well-balanced and versatile contemporary solution that maximises...

Low-frequency sound transmission in a cross-laminated timber apartment building can result in annoyance, even if the acoustic requirements of the building code are fulfilled. Cross-laminated timber is an upcoming material in the building industry. But there are also problems arising when building with this relatively new material. CLT is a...

The building industry consumes a lot of material, which causes depletion of material stocks, toxic emissions, and waste. Circular building design can help to reduce this impact, by moving from a linear to a circular design approach. <br/>To reach a circular build environment, all disciplines should be involved, including fire safety design....

This research focused on the role of cross-laminated timber (CLT) in the transition to a circular and bio-based housing sector in the province of Zuid-Holland (PZH). A scenario-model framework was used to assess the socio-economic and environmental impacts on the construction sector, as a result of CLT construction in general and as a result of...

Design of a cohousing project based on partially existing structure of a former 50ies shopping mall. The existing structure is evaluated and freely approached with the open mindset of the bricoleur. The bricoleur as defined by Claude Levi Strauss works with the existing and uses what is at hand. The result is the formation of a new urban...

“In which way can the design of the residential environment contribute to the social self-reliance of young people with a mild intellectual disability?” We are facing a huge challenge in the Netherlands: we have to build up to ‘1 Million Homes’ by 2030. But such a huge assignment raises the question if those new dwellings will be inclusive...

This graduation research report is part of the Dutch Housing studio, Dwelling. The studios brief is to design a large residential building in the Merwe-Vierhavens (M4H) in Rotterdam, a former port area that is being redeveloped by the municipality. The guidelines from the municipality are to create a dense, dynamic urban area consisting of a...

WeGrowCo, reintroduced the open-building ideology of John Habraken and Frans van der Werf within the organic design proces of a new neighborhood at Strandeiland, Ijburg. WeGrowCo proves that open-building has a large potential to grow, make and build adaptable and self-sufficient neighborhoods together with inhabitants. Before buildings are...

Timber and complex designs are making a move in the building industry, as the building industry is on the brink of a significant change toward a 100% customized, more sustainable architecture. Robotic fabrication and Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) can play an important role in this change, but there is a lot of uncertainty and ignorance about the...

Cross-Laminated timber (CLT), and other engineered timber products, are under high demand due to their prefabricated nature and environmental benefits. A key concern surrounding the application of CLT in buildings is its combustible nature and subsequent contribution to a compartment fire. Previous research has shown that exposed CLT, under...
