Idea to re-use mix floor wood-concrete by separating the concrete from the wood without breaking it. Thus, it would be possible to re-use both materials separately and it opens more possibilities for re-using (grand dimension elements). For this project, we choose pre made concrete, as it's possible to mold it as we want and there is no need of formwork bottom anymore. In addition, no more issues about drying anymore because there is no contact between wet concrete and wood.
Moreover, nowadays building still use a lot of concrete, thus this technology may be another way to introduce bio-based materials in building.
Main part of the project was to work on connectors ideas to attach concrete to wood and to enable a separation.
Re-use by removing material from each other and use less materials
Concrete Wood Kerto Metal connector
- Need of less material, no use of formwork bottom anymore
- Opens more possibilities to re-use the wood and the concrete thanks to the grand dimension of the elements (2,5m x 6m in this example but may be more)
