South Poland Cleantech Cluster

is the initiator of the krk UrbanHub project - a sustainable CEE (Central- and Eastern European) urbanization hub
krakowurbanhub is a partner in the urbanhub europe consortium of European cities consisting of BLOXHUB in Copenhagen, KIRAHub in Helsinki, Munich Urban Colab, FACTORY Hammerbrooklyn Hamburg, FAKTORY Berlin, Urban Resilience Hub Barcelona
krk UrbanHub is a national and international meeting place that engages people in architecture, design and sustainable urban development. This is done through exhibitions, debates, events, business development and new partnerships.
krk UrbaHhub is an ecosystem for creating cities of the future, and at the same time a space to share ideas, skills and strategies for designing buildings and urban development based on a people-centered approach and high standards of sustainable development, and a membership-based community combining urban development, architecture, design, design, construction, circular economy and digitization.

South Poland Cleantech Cluster

SPCleantech is co-founder of European Alliance for Cross- Industrial Circular Economy Investments (ICEI Alliance) consisting of European clusters and universities. During 2020-2021 there have been held meetings to prepare the establishment of the European Alliance for Cross- Industrial Circular Economy Investments, hosted by the Circular Economy Centre at Digipolis, Kemi, Finland.

The ICEI Alliance has for ambition to make Europe the global industrial circular economy platform to accelerate the deployment of world-class circular economy solutions to industry. It acts as a pipeline of business-led circular economy investment projects. Alliance members support businesses with the structuring of their investment cases as well as with accessing funding and financing streams.

On 02.07.2018 a meeting of the working group was held at the SPCleantech headquarters as part of the SPCleantech members “CleanTech House” project. The design group consisting of architectural companies, manufacturers and institutions participate aims to develop modular prefabricated wooden houses based on the technology proposed by the PalettenWerk company.

PalettenWerk has developed a technology for the production of wooden houses based on a project financed by NCBiR in cooperation with the Cracow University of Technology – Małopolskie Centrum Budownictwa Energooszczędnego using a patentable polymer connection and prefabrication technology based on improved glued laminated timber panels (CLT).

Members of the working group are:

  • PalettenWerk
  • Horizon Studio
  • BLOK Architekci
  • Bjerg Arkitekter
  • SUMA Architektów
  • 123HOME
  • Małopolskie Centrum Budownictwa Energooszczędnego
  • SPCleantech

Houses and modular buildings

Houses and buildings are based on repeatable construction modules. Prefabricated walls are mounted on individually made foundations. The division of spaces inside the modules takes place through partition walls. The construction of prefabricated elements allows for the expansion of the facility at a later time, depending on the individual needs and characteristics of the plot.
