High Performance, Economical & Sustainable Biocomposite Building Materials

BioBuild Project wins 2015 JEC Innovation Award

The “BioBuild Façade System in Biocomposites” has won this year’s JEC Innovation Award Europe in the category “construction”. The award ceremony took place on 10 March in Paris.

Designed by Arup and GXN Innovation as part of the BioBuild project, it is the world’s first self-supporting façade panel for building construction made of biocomposites that reduces the embodied energy in façade systems by up to 50 percent compared to conventional construction materials with no increase in cost.
