Building is in our DNA. Innovation is our driving force.
Brensj – rooted in 20 years
of expertise from Ecohuis
Brensj is not just a new modular construction concept. It’s a total solution with its roots in the philosophy of Ecohuis, a pioneer and market leader in ecological and energy-efficient building for the past 20 years. With Brensj, Ecohuis is seeking to evolve even further and stand out on the market as a sustainable, innovative and forward-looking market player.
Energy-efficient, modular, unfixed and circular
Each Brensj starts with industrial and energy-efficient basic modules, which are manufactured in the assembly hall as much as possible. Modules can then be flexibly linked to form mobile units. Mobile means that the unit is not fixed permanently to the ground, so you can always move it and completely re-purpose it, even in another location if you wish. You can also upgrade or customise a unit.
Buy or rent?
Plus all the services you need
You can rent or buy an eco-unit and add the services you need. But needs change over time.
That’s why you can adjust your service package along the way.
A look back
A total solution like Brensj isn’t plucked out of thin air. There’s a lot of hard work between developing the concept and getting your eco-system up and running.
An idea is born at EcohuisAn innovative idea, a concept with a societal impact, a valuable network and a drawing board. Our specialists and architects from A³M draw up the first sketches of a brand-new ecological modular living and working concept.
Market researchTogether with build2grow, the concept is tested on the national and international market. What are the trends in mobile, modular, circular and energy-efficient building? Who are the key players? Which target groups benefit most from Ecohuis’s concept? What are their expectations? The pieces of the puzzle are put together and a strategic plan is set out.
A forward-looking solution for informal care and remote workingEcohuis decides to focus on informal care and remote working – two segments that are evolving rapidly. Together with Licalab, we develop a solution for informal carers that’s fit for the future. In response to high demand from stakeholders, we do the same for companies wishing to shift towards more remote working.
Green light from VLAIO – ecosystem of partners establishedThe application for a grant to develop mobile housing and work units gets the green light from Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship (VLAIO). We form various partnerships to help produce a complete service package that gives informal carer and homeworkers peace of mind. And each partner enriches our ecosystem with its particular expertise.
