Research projects co-financed by the European Union

I. Warbud SA will implement a project co-financed from European Funds called "Innovative system for obtaining thermal energy from underground structures of large-volume buildings"

We are pleased to announce that the project called "Innovative system for obtaining thermal energy from underground structures of large-volume buildings" received EU funding under the Intelligent Development Operational Program 2014-2020 in the field Intelligent and Energy-Efficient Construction. The competition was organized by the National Centre for Research and Development and the project we submitted was ranked second among those submitted in that category. Warbud invests in development and hereby opens its wave of R&D projects receiving public funding. The success in the form of obtaining funds for the implementation of the R&D project is the result of synergy between the work of the Geotechnics and Foundations Design Team and the Innovation, Research and Development Department..

Project implementation period: 01.11.2020 – 31.10.2022

Project value : 2 009 562,50 PLN

Co-financing from EU funds: 68%, i.e. 1,366,606.25 PLN

The two-year project which we will have the pleasure to launch at the beginning of November 2020 will be implemented in cooperation with the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering of Warsaw University of Technology. Its life cycle assumes 4 phases: from industrial research in a laboratory to the implementation of technologies for common use. The idea of the project is to introduce an intelligent system for managing the heating and cooling systems in buildings with the use of a heat exchanger located in the structure of their diaphragm walls and utilising the phenomenon of an inter-season ground heat storage controlled by a specially developed system. 

We hope that within a short time a product will appear in Warbud’s portfolio which will be characterized by the rules of sustainable development and which will bring not only enormous non-material benefits for the sake of the future of our planet, but also specific financial benefits for environmentally oriented Investors. 

II. On December 14, 2020, Warbud signed an agreement with the National Centre for Research and Development for co-financing of the project entitled "Automation of design and monitoring of prestressed excavation shoring systems along with the production and technological process related to such systems".

Project implementation will take 2 years and will include industrial research, research in real environment, i.e. on construction sites, as well as final implementation of the technology for general use at Warbud SA. The aim of the project is to develop an automated process of designing and monitoring a compressed shoring system for deep excavations as well as the production and technological process associated with the system. Each construction site will be approached individually which thanks to the new design tools will be characterized by the highest level of safety for people and structures. The environment will also benefit from the reduction of materials used and the impact on site surroundings. Safety of the construction site neighbourhood will improve. In addition to that, implementation of the project will have a positive impact on the construction process, streamlining and reducing construction time and costs.

Departments responsible for the acquisition of funds and then implementation and settlement of the project are Warbud’s Innovation, Research and Development Department and the Geotechnics and Foundations Project Team (ZPGiF). The research part in the form of prototypes will be developed in cooperation with the Foundations Division. Mr. Paweł Kryński is Manager of the Project, Mr. Grzegorz Kacprzak is Research and Development Manager and Mr. Mateusz Frydrych will be responsible for project coordination on the part of ZPGiF.  

‘Thanks to the projects currently implemented with the National Centre for Research and Development and the activities of DIBR and ZPGiF, Warbud is firmly rooted in its position among the few Polish construction companies who carry out research and implement advanced technologies in construction, following the sustainable development path,’ said Mr. Paweł Kryński.

‘The construction industry is developing largely due to digitization and optimization of processes already at the stage of planning and designing an investment. In bridge projects, tensioning systems are widely used, thanks to which it is possible to achieve impressive spans or reduce the amount of materials needed. The newly won project will allow us to combine knowledge in the field of bridge engineering and the latest digital technologies to create a design methodology for prestressed diaphragm walls. This new venture will change the design and implementation methods known so far, giving us the opportunity to gain significant competitive edge on the market,’ added Mateusz Frydrych.

Time for implementation: February 2021 - January 2023

Total cost of project implementation amounts to: PLN 9,112,160.00; subsidy 55.65% PLN 5,070,560.25
