CobBauge

The CobBauge project is part of the European Union to reduce carbon emissions of the FCE area by 2020 by 20% (2012/27 / EU). The energy consumed for the building sector currently represents 40% of the total energy produced (UE2010), 60% of which is used by occupants to heat buildings.

The cob houses are commonly found in the Channel Regions of France and Great Britain. So the objective of the CobBauge project is to create new techniques and methods for the preservation of buildings.

The INTERREG VA France (Channel) – co-funded by the ERDF and involves 6 French and British partners.

 

 

Duration of the project : 07/2017 – 06/2023

Total budget : € 4,097,365.07

ERDF co-financing : € 2,827,181.91 (69%)

 

 

 

Cob is a mixture of earth and fiber, such as straw, which is then mixed with water and used to construct buildings.

These included an overview of the innovation and ambitions of the CobBauge research project, its guide for designers, the standard detailing and design as well as the tour of the first CobBauge house in Fakenham.
The Open Days was incredibly rewarding, giving the whole team the opportunity to meet and keep in touch with new stakeholders in the field of natural building materials and a real for CobBauge’s construction potential in the future
