Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The technical objective of the DryConDis project has been to effectively assess, develop and disseminate information about the use of steel-intensive dry construction systems in housing gained from previous ECSC-funded projects during 1997-2003. The project partnership has produced a text document and PowerPoint slides on dry construction system items, including a general description and design guidelines for light-weight steel floors, walls and facades and roof systems. Design examples and construction details are also included and a series of completed building projects with steel-intensive dry composite products and systems has been introduced. All documents and PowerPoint presentations were translated into Estonian, Finnish, German, Greek, Italian, Polish and Swedish, concluding with English versions in a total of over 1 400 document pages and 1 700 PowerPoint slides. Seminars on dry construction systems have been organised all over Europe targeting mainly design engineers, architects and constructors. More than 500 people - many of them researchers, teachers and staff of building authorities - also participated in the seminars.
