Build Solar – January 2019

Koha collaborated with Build Solar for their Dubai Expo 2020 submission and created a concept and images to showcase their innovative new solar squared product.

“Solar squared incorporates patent-pending glass block technology that enables electricity generation, bringing us closer towards net-zero energy buildings. It’s modular and attractive design allows seamless integration within building architecture.

The façade lifetime costs are lower than the equivalent glass block wall thanks to the benefit of free electricity generation and improved thermal insulation. Build Solar is supported by cutting-edge research, carried out at the University of Exeter.”

“Koha came to our rescue when faced with a very short deadline for submitting additional visualisation materials for a tender to install our new solar integrated building materials at the Dubai Expo 2020. The team got to work quickly and readily understood our brief whilst adding architectural value to the overall concept proposal”

- Jim Williams, Co-Founder Build Solar.
