SunRoof, an international start-up developing solar roofs and smart energy management solutions, has teamed up with BIMobject, the owner of the largest parametric objects platform, to hold a prestigious, international competition: "House of the Future. Best SunRoof Project 2020. Designing the House of the Future with a SunRoof solar roof using BIMobject". This is an opportunity for architects around the world to promote their visionary designs of houses which utilise innovative technologies to overcome the challenges of climate change.
At SunRoof, we believe that the way forward is architecture utilising sustainable energy solutions. We inspire others to build an ecological future, and we appreciate architects who boldly incorporate environmental friendliness in their designs. We want to reward such brilliant designers for taking on the challenges of today
- says Lech Kaniuk, CEO of SunRoof.
Combining SunRoof solar roofs with BIM methodology results in a bespoke sustainable solution. Designing with BIM allows the architect to detect errors and collisions even at the simulation stage, which helps avoid unforeseen material and energy losses. This is why tapping the potential of this technology now is so important
- says Maciej Olczyk, Project Manager at BIMobject.
SunRoof manufactures 2-in-1 solar roofs and innovative façades that generate electricity without having to install traditional photovoltaic modules. This is the best investment replacing the need for installing solar panels on top of a classic roof - the most efficient solution, the lowest carbon footprint, uncompromising elegance.
Our mission is to speed up the global transition to renewables by developing beautiful roofs that, by generating electricity, will cover the energy demand of the entire building.
