Sustainable NORFAC solutions

The NORFAC facade system must be Sustainable in social, economical and

environmental terms.

To substantiate the sustainability the facade element should be developed with a

lifecycle perspective for the whole building, not only for construction but also for use

and maintaniance. Like wise a holistic approch must be considered for the building

architecture as a whole including the context and the social aspects of the building in

the local society.


The three aspects of sustainability:

1. Social sustainability: Security, Health and Comfort

2. Environmental sustainability: Energy, Ecolocical and Life cycle.

3. Economical quality: Total economy , Robustness and Efficient use.



The three aspects are further described in the Conceptual Design WP 2 report and for further information about the sustainability solution in the NORFAC facde solution, contact one of the two experts in the NORFAC network:
