Forest based composites for façades and interior partitions to improve indoor air quality in new builds and restoration

Northern Europe

Tartu Demo site for the OSIRYS project is going to be Tartu Mart Reinik Gymnasium’s football stadium building.

The building is intended to improve sporting conditions at the gymnasium. The stadium is situated in the central district of Tartu within 15 minutes walking distance from the city square. The stadium is used by 3 different schools located next to the stadium with more than 1200 students. Starting from 6pm and on the weekends the stadium is used for recreational purposes and football competitions. The stadium has nearly 300 weekly recreational users.

The stadium building is a brand new 250 m2 building that is intended to improve conditions at the stadium. The building will include 4 dressing rooms, 2 shower rooms, 2 saunas, toilets, office spaces for athletics teachers and/or football referees. Currently the recreational users have to use the school’s dressing and shower rooms. The new building will provide separate facilities for recreational users and improve security. The new building will also provide dressing rooms for the school’s outdoor activities. This will improve cleanliness in the three schools buildings and the dressing rooms. Stadium building is going to be constructed mainly from the OSIRYS project materials. The glass façade facing the stadium will be assembled from the curtain wall element developed in the project. Outer perimeter of the building will be constructed from the OSIRYS multilayer façade element and all indoor wall surfaces will use the OSIRYS indoor wall element excluding the saunas and other wet rooms.


Together with the construction of the stadium building the stadium itself will be renovated. A brand new stadium complex will be opened during summer 2017. The stadium building is planned to be finished at May 2017.


This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 609067.
