    Giving breath to buildings

    The partnership for "Giving breath to the buildings" (GIBB) gives the chance to students and all participants to the project to have experiences in an european environment and in different european countries about the maintenance and the building of houses with ecological materials. Some partners of this Project are experienced in building with different ecological techniques because they have the formal and informal "know how" for giving theoretical and practical bases to the whole partnership. Below are listed some of the topics considered the focus for the experiences of this Project: 1) solar panel systems 2) natural plasters (lime and clay) 3) natural paints 4) wooden roofs 5) houses made of straw and clay 6) log houses 7) evaluating existing buidings made with these techniques and materials 8) evaluating benefits in buildings houses with ecological materials In this project we had, among others, the following final products: a) a DVD summarizing the experiences done by participants. b) a discussion in a Blog for all purposes of the Project c) a "Business Plan" concerning the start up and the management of a (simulated) company operating in the mainteining and repairing market for buldings. In this case the business has to be performed using only ecological materials and techniques in that specific market. d) various learning activities (during the seminars in Italy, Estonia, Turkey) e) a Final Conference for summarizing and debating the experiences and the results of the Project
