Project

Our projects so far include: A terra cotta effect BIPV roof on our show house at theBRE Innovation Park, Watford (www.bregroup.com) and (www.userhuus.com/park), a terra cotta effect BIPV carport roof at our premises (www.userhuus.com/carport) in Hergiswil, Switzerland, the BIPV “Swissness” façade at the Umweltarena, Spreitenbach, Switzerland, (www.userhuus.com/spreitenbach-switzerland) and the coloured and structured BIPV balcony balustrades at the NEST building at EMPA (www.userhuus.com/coloured-and-structuredpv), Dübendorf, Switzerland.

We also were involved in developing Terra Cotta BIPV roof tiles by Issol, testing by CSEM,installation by Solstis and sponsoring by ÜserHuus, Republic and Canton of Neuchâtel, State of Fribourg and the Federal Agency for Energy for a farmhouse in alisted building area in Ecuvillens, Fribourg, Switzerland (www.userhuus.com/userhuus-contribution).

Among the forthcoming projects is the facade retrofit of the ÜserHuus/Tigh Grian show-houses at BRE Watford. The existing traditional cladding will be replaced with multi-coloured BIPV cladding. This cladding is made in collaboration with LucerneUniversity of Applied Sciences and Arts HSLU (https://www.hslu.ch) and combines special colour printing on glass with more efficient mono-crystalline PV technology as a market ready product, tested and certified.

Another forthcoming pilot- and demonstration project are BIPV sculptures Greek goddesses at ÜserHuus’ premises  (www.userhuus.com/bipvsculptures) in Hergiswil, Switzerland.

We also envisage several multi-coloured and/or semi-transparent BIPV facades inSwitzerland, for example for an architectural practice near Lucerne and a bank’s administrative building near Geneva.
