1. BACKGROUND PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The main goal of PLURAL H2020 project is to design, validate and demonstrate a palette of versatile, adaptable, scalable, off-site prefabricated “Plug and Use” (PnU) façade kits for deep renovation of residential buildings. The PnU kits will incorporate renewable energy technologies in prefabricated façade components with optimized performance for different building types, climates and socio-economic conditions.
The project has the following objectives: Design and manufacturing of optimized PnU kits; Development and validation of IT tools; Pilot validation and real scale demonstration; Multi stakeholder “Go-to-Market” strategy. For more information, please visit
As a building user/owner or relevant stakeholder, you have been selected to participate in this study to provide feedback on preselected impacts during the PLURAL trial phase.
The questionnaire aims to provide a better understanding of the renovation requirements of the PLURAL demo sites. Also, the collected answers will provide a useful reference regarding the parameters that affect the decisions made for renovation.
2. WHAT WILL I BE ASKED TO DO?
Feedback will be collected via the attached pro forma. The following precautions are taken to protect your anonymity and confidentiality: No personal information is requested. You are under no pressure to provide feedback and you are free to decline to answer questions. Any information collected will be destroyed after the end of the study. Only, statistical data will be presented.
3. WHAT TYPE OF INFORMATION WILL BE COLLECTED?
You will not be identified in the research findings either directly or indirectly unless we have your permission to do so. Even after receiving your permission, we will not identify or quote you in any publication (e.g. direct quote or paraphrase your comment) without allowing you to verify the accuracy of quotes that are being used. Information collected will be restricted to questions relevant to the nature of your use of the building (number of hours per day, number of days per week, etc; rooms occupied).
4. CAN WE CONTACT YOU FOR FURTHER RESEARCH?
You may contact me in the future for further research related to the PLURAL project.
5. ARE THERE RISKS OR BENEFITS IF I PARTICIPATE?
Since confidentiality is being provided, no risks are foreseen in relation to participation. Benefits would be restricted to the contributions of the study towards understanding any impacts on the internal comfort of building users caused by PLURAL during the trial.
6. WHAT HAPPENS TO THE INFORMATION I PROVIDE?
All information collected will be stored electronically in password-protected electronic files. All personal information (e.g. name and contact details) will be destroyed after the research study is completed in September 2023. Summaries of feedback may be provided to other researchers in the team, but this will be provided in a format that will ensure that your identity cannot be ascertained.
7. WHO IS ORGANISING AND FUNDING THE RESEARCH?
PLURAL has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme EC Grant Agreement No. 958218
