Digital developments have given designers, engineers and architects access to a wide range of new tools and production methods, pointing to new and better solutions in design and architecture. Natural science is also developing rapidly. Within biology, chemistry and physics, it is now possible to design materials to meet very specific needs and characteristics.
Working with applied research aimed at creating new materials and digital technologies to the construction industry, we are not only on the forefront of the development - we are shaping it. For example, GXN is examining the possibility of using mushrooms as an insulation material. The advantage is that mushrooms are self-growing natural organisms which unlike traditional insulation material does not require energy in production and has no negative effects on the environment. Another example is our longstanding development of biocomposites, which are lightweight, strong and durable materials which consist exclusively of biological ingredients.
