Green material technologies relate not only to modern productions and applications but to ancient ones as well. This was very well demonstrated throughout last weeks of Deep Green Inno project first phase to the students of our partner Universiteti Polis.
Three large groups of architecture and civil engineering students 🏢 🏗 attended week-long workshops in the city of Gjirokastra getting training on the restoration of cultural heritage sites by using sustainable materials ✔ . The students have been introduced to 8 sites recognised as cultural monuments of the first and second category. Training sessions were focused on digitisation tools for measuring, analysing, sketching, and presenting key architectural elements, alongside detailed research on materials used for restoration and/or reconstruction. Led by professors of both the Architecture and Civil Engineering Departments 💠 students worked and will continue working with BIM/ hBIM technology to further optimise the research and design process. Following the workshop on site, they also attended lectures introducing the new equipment that is to be added to the Departments' existing laboratories in the framework of the Deep Green Inno project. The equipment will serve to test the durability of a variety of sustainable materials including wood, stone, and repurposed mixed materials developed by our industry partners.
Excellent job by this team, on expanding our mission on "greening" the Balkans material sciences !
