Seminar on Ubuild at the University School of Industrial Design at the University of La Coruña. Part 10

In part 10 we talk about the assembly of the O Soutiño house, the first house built with Ubuild. All the components of the house have already been manufactured. Manufacturing took a long time, as we took the opportunity to finish perfecting some aspects of the construction system. Now there is no going back, everything is ready and we can only put into practice all the concepts that have been developed in recent years.

Seminar on Ubuild at the University School of Industrial Design at the University of La Coruña. Part 9

In part 9 we talk about the O Soutiño house, the first house built with Ubuild. The elaboration of the project, the dialogue with Manuel and Silvia, knowing their wishes and illusions. To know the terrain well to get the most out of it and enrich the project. The manufacture of the construction elements, the moment of truth, where something new has to be definitively materialized that has not been done until now. The moment for which so much has been fought has finally arrived! You have to work very hard so that everything goes well.

Collaboration between the University of A Coruña and Ubuild

The Department of Construction and Structures of the University of A Coruña is developing a research project on "Deployable and modular constructions for situations of humanitarian disasters". Those responsible for the research, led by the Professor of Structures Don Juan Pérez Valcárcel, have considered it appropriate to propose an Emergency Module using the Ubuild construction system due to the unique and special features that this innovative construction system provides. The Ubuild construction system has the added interest that has been conceived and developed entirely by a professional who has been trained at the University of A Coruña and has had the collaboration of Galician companies.

modular house, o soutiño part 9

It´s time to assemble all the fabricated elements in the building site. Everything has been thought and planned so that every piece fits in with the previous one, like a huge mecano, where there is no margin for inaccuracy.

sustainable house, o soutiño part 6

All the structure of the house has already been produced. We have got the skeleton of the house and the next we will produce the remaining components of the building. The elements forming walls, floor and ceiling must be placed with perfect exactitude between beams and pillars and of course they must fit in with one another with a millimetric precision.

green house, o soutiño part 5

While the works continues on the land, the production of the components of the house has started in the factory. First the structure, it is the frame-work and over it the rest fo the construction elements are fitted in. To produce beams and colums is necessary to use wood machining center, because the precision of each element is measured in milimeters, in order to fit it perfectly.

green architecture, o soutiño house part 3

The views from the land towards the east are spectacular, including a large valley covered mainly by Woods and some groups of dispersed houses on the horizon. There are also some elements that can spoil this interesting description and prevent from enjoyning the views clearly. We have to see how to avoid it.
