Test equipment developed in Groningen to become part of the BuildinG innovation center

While the construction of the BuildinG innovation center at EnTranCe on the Zernike Campus is in full bloom, the transfer of test equipment by QuakeShield to BuildinG has been taking place.

The test equipment developed by QuakeShield, which allows structural wall elements to be subject to various tensile forces, will get a definite place at BuildinG. BuildinG stands for ‘Build in Groningen’ and is the knowledge and innovation center for future-proof construction and infra. At BuildinG entrepreneurs, researchers and governments gather together to test and develop new products that can be used in Northern Groningen and beyond. With the aim of a safe and comfortable living and living environment. The innovation platform was founded by the Economic Board Groningen, Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen, Bouwend Nederland and TNO.

After the summer the cyclic fleece ester will be used. Ihsan Bal, lector Earthquake-proof building of the Hanze UAS, will be regularly at BuildinG with his research team and students. His specialty is the strengthening of historic buildings. The test equipment will be a prominent place in its research. In addition, companies can test their innovative products on QuakeShield’s equipment. The EPI Knowledge Center, an initiative of the Alfa College, the Hanze UAS and the University of Groningen, also has a role in this. This training center for earthquake-proof building will use the developed knowledge in practice to help residents of the province of Groningen to live safely.

QuakeShield is an innovative system of the Groningen companies SealteQ and Royal Oosterhof Holman. The applied method ensures that brickwork is preventative strengthened.
