This final report contains the results and analysis of the project conducted for Garnica during 2016, 2017 and 2018 for writing the technical documentation of the G‑Brick SIP and G-Brick Deco products. After obtaining the “dossier technique” certification from the French FCBA Technological Institute, which tested the panels to European standard ETAG-019, we saw that…

XPS (extruded polystyrene), is a thermoplastic polymer with high compression resistance (higher than 300 kPa = 3.05 kg/cm² ), that once is combined with our plywood panels, improves their mechanical inertia and rigidity, creating Structural Insulated panels. In the development of the G-Brick DECO panels, we tested more than 20 different insulation cores, comparing mechanical resistance,…

ABS (American Building System S.L.), a manufacturer of industrialized modular dwellings, is continuing its policy of energy efficiency, by adapting all its catalogue of dwellings to Almost Zero Consumption. This commitment had led ABS to certify the –FIRST PASSIVE MODULAR DWELLING- in Europe. ABS uses G-Brick 12-120-12 (U= 0.31W/m) panels as a structural element in…

After the initial idea of developing innovative furniture to solve the current problems of the big cities of the world, where apartment rental is constantly on the increase, the MIT team of researchers, Hasier Larrea and Ivan Fernandez, together with their American work group, have designed a furniture concept that breaks with what has been…

In order to complete the technical development of the G-Brick SIP construction system and its application to various construction methods demanded by the sector today (traditional in-situ construction, prefabrication in 2 dimensions and in 3 dimensions), for the purpose of a technical document with constructive details and its structural calculation, the latest models in constructive…

After a few months of close partnership between the promoters of www.constructionsflottantes.com and Garnica´s technical department with the expert, Ugutz Arrizabalaga, we managed to define the set of unique projects that make up this holiday rental area in the North of France. These are several projects, which combine accommodation in unusual places, such as lakes and trees,…

  Garnica attended the event organised in Huesca for the presentation and promotion of the PassivHaus standard, buildings of almost zero energy consumption, as technical sponsor of the PBP platform (PassivHaus Building Platform), the Spanish branch of the German PassivHaus institute. The session was attended by architects, builders and people interested in this new standard…

The architectural team formed by Fernando Oiza and Eduardo Urdiain, and the Navarre company producing prefabricated houses, Casas del Irati, specialising in full 3D prefabrication, logistics and assembly, have begun work on a high-energy efficiency housing in Artaun, Vizcaya. The most innovative aspect of this project is that the G-Brick SIP panels are used as…
