CIMEDE2

HOW CAN ONE BUILD TIMBER FRAME CARE CENTRES FOR THE DISABLED, OR RETIREMENT HOMES, NURSERIES AND SCHOOLS?

GreenWin présente CIMEDE2 :

The CIMEDE project aims to develop a new construction concept based on industrially prefabricated wood panels. 
The system was developed in two phases : 
• the first destined for family homes (CIMEDE 1); 
• the second for the wider community (CIMEDE2). 
CIMEDE is a concept based on a social and circular economic model. 

One of the aims of this project is to allow potential new buyers, notably young 
couples, to achieve ownership of homes that can progressively adapt to their needs 
at competitive prices, while still maintaining optimum levels of quality, finish and 
comfort.
Technically, the CIMEDE construction system is composed of different elements 
that allow for a building to be conceived as flexibly as possible.

Les « + » :

  • Flexible nature of the building (easy displacement of internal panels with no impact on interior finish).
  • Possibility to expand (or reduce) the building in order to adapt to the real needs of the occupants.
  • Ease of adaptation over time (modification of interior and exterior finishes / relocation, adding or removing of window openings).
