The use of bio-based or natural materials has been indicated to have prospective reductions in energy consumption, emissions, and costs. Their beneficial impacts have been particularly studied in walls, insulation, and façades applications. On the other hand, industrialized construction refers to the adoption of manufacturing methods in the...

In recent years, the housing market has been under pressure due to growing demand for (inner-city) housing and a lack of supply. Housing is in high demand as a result of factors such as population growth, rapid urbanization, smaller households, the freezing of "mobility in houses, and so on. The low developing speed to cater to these issues...

Knuppe, Joep (author)
Increasing housing demand in Europe and the need to be more sustainable are asking the construction industry to leave the traditional pathways and innovate. An emerging construction method with volumetric timber modules potentially offers the solution. However little is known about the robustness of this new innovation. Therefore, this thesis...

With the acceleration of global urbanization, most of us will live in cities in the future. As the urban population grows, the shortage of residential buildings has become a more and more severe problem. In response to the rising demand for housing, more and more builders in Europe, East Asia, Australia and other places have begun to adopt a...

The housing market in the Netherlands faces two challenges which are the housing shortage and the climate crisis. Modular construction can help solve these challenges due to the many advantages that modular construction has over traditional construction. The advantages that are most related to solving these challenges are the reduced...

Glass is a fascinating material that has also been used as a primary construction material in various remarkable buildings since the last century. Unfortunately, a lot of carbon dioxide is released during the production of glass because of the extreme heat required. The construction industry accounts for ten per cent of global CO2 emissions. If...

With increasing adoption of modular construction in the residential sector, its adoption in the Dutch healthcare sector is studied. Whilst the initial costs can be higher, this method of construction claims to have cost benefits over conventional construction. These are the benefits of construction speed and residual value at the end of lifespan...

Heitkönig, Maurits (author)
The aim of this thesis is to investigate and quantify the efficiency of high capacity self-stabilising modules in mid-rise residential buildings. These modules have a higher stabilising capacity than modules that are currently being used in the Netherlands and other countries and can therefore be used for more storeys without requiring an...

There is a growing need for social housing in the Netherlands, especially in urban areas. The construction industry faces the difficult task of quickly responding to this demand while also reducing the embodied carbon emissions of new buildings. A proposed solution to these tasks is constructing mass timber buildings, leading to cheaper...

Indonesia is currently facing a housing deficit of 15 million units. In order to try and resolve this problem, 800.000 units of formal housing are being build every year and the most popular typology in this fast growing housing market is the Indonesian housing cluster. The goal within this project is to do a redesign of the housing cluster...

Sweden has a strong demand on the construction of student accommodations and consequently significant efforts have been taken to increase and streamline construction methods. In addition, the fluctuation on the number of students admitted at each year, in each university, lead to periods of house shortage or, in opposition to that, to...
