Opening of the Showcase
To demonstrate what the INDU-ZERO renovation packages consist of and to experience what it feels like to live in a renovated house, three houses were renovated within the project.
One of the renovated houses, the INDU-ZERO showcase, was officially opened on 12 November 2021 in Enschede (the Netherlands). The showcase provides a good impression of what is already possible in the field of renovation. It also shows what is needed to speed up the necessary renovations at a lower price. You can visit the showcase during a few open houses. The first date being Friday 14 January and the second date Friday 11 February, both between 9:30 and 14:00. Read more about the possibilities to visit the location.

Preparations are being made to install several INDU-ZERO renovation packages in a number of houses this summer/autumn. Housing corporation Domijn together with RC panels and Buro de Haan in the Netherlands are transforming three terraced houses into a showcase. Different installation packages will be installed by Comfort Partners in all three houses. One of the houses will not be inhabited, but open to visitors. In this so called INDU-ZERO house you can see, feel and experience the renovation yourself. This way the performance and experience of each possibility can be measured in an inhabited and uninhabited state.
The showcase houses are interesting for varied parties interested in the renovation products and the outcome of the INDU-ZERO project. The information is also beneficial for national and regional authorities: could INDU-ZERO be a possible solution for parties in your country or region, is building a factory an option in your country or region?
Housing corporations, potential investors, DMU’s (decision making units) and construction companies will find lots of information about our response to the sustainable challenges we are facing. We are looking for other housing corporations who embrace the idea of being an innovator or early adopter as launching customers give the confidence to actually build the factories. We also invite investors and construction companies to come and have a look in the INDU-ZERO house. This could be the starting point for actually building a factory for renovation packages with the help of the INDU-ZERO Blueprint.
So please be patient for a few more months. Meanwhile we will keep you updated.
