This project will gather and share up-to-date information on new techniques and critical points related to the construction of farm buildings and their sustainability. The project will comprise two steps:
Consultants will be invited to share the quality control practices they employ for site supervision. Finally, the best techniques will be selected and explained.
From 2019 to 2021
A new guide for monitoring agricultural building sites will help increase the sustainability of new farm structures.
