Industrialized building

During our consortium meeting in February we started our site visit with a lecture from Haico van Nunen from Bouwhulpgroep about industrialized building. Haico explained to the consortium the ideas behind industrialized building in the past, the pros and cons and examples, and what we can learn from it for our current task.

After the Second World War there was a need for reconstruction. Society changed, the population grew with 50% in 30 years. This happened while there were no materials, no schooled personal and limited resources. Industrialized building was famous for being cheap, reliable and fast.

Haico explained the various building systems used in industrialized building and whether this provides opportunities for upscaling and renovation. Lastly, Haico zoomed in on the specific buildings in Rotterdam before we left by train to see the neighborhood for ourselves.
