Today's sustainable innovation for tomorrow's smart home

Innovative start up BBB Ltd. was born in 2020 from an entrepreneurial idea based on the international patent and the bold vision of the start up's Founder as well as inventor of the BioBuildingBlock module. R&D strategy is the basis of the technical development of the start up BBB, which confirms the design innovativeness and added value vs. competitors. The start up collaborates closely with leading national research centers such as the Strentgh Department of Engineering at UniSa and the ITC-CNR in Milan: this has enabled it to carry out a series of experimental tests preparatory to obtainingETA certification and the CE mark.

The start-up team is heterogeneous in terms of education but united by a strong green spirit and a desire to change the patterns of construction thanks to the high innovative value of BioBuildingBlock, which enables the construction of reinforced wood walls with increased earthquake safety and improved living comfort. The current solution of the housing module, makes it even easier, faster and cheaper to build single-family houses, tourist and accommodation facilities up to polyclinic health centers.

To date, BBB has another 2 patents in development always in "green" technologies and a patent in digital health already approved nationally and being extended internationally. All together the various patents best represent the values of Innovation and Sustainability encoded in the DNA of the young start-up BBB. The BioBuildingBlock biomass is covered by patents already approved in Europe and the US. Recently BioBuildingBlock won the international Innovation & Excellence Award 2022 for sustainability, seeing the start up's two core values of sustainability and innovation recognized.

How BioBuildingBlock was born.

The invention of BioBuildingBlock is the result of founder Marco Citro's passionate research in finding a building solution that could withstand even very strong seismic events and was environmentally friendly, thanks to his love for nature. The founder's personal experience of having survived the Irpinia earthquake of 1980, while still a child, determined over time the desire to search for a different and better way to construct the safest and most sustainable buildings, preventing deaths and damage to the environment. Upon the occurrence in recent years of very serious seismic events in central Italy, such as those in Aquila and Amatrice, the idea of creating the first reinforced wood wall through the mechanical joining of BioBuildingBlock bricks took shape.

Thus began the exciting founder's design and development project for the first BioBuildingBlock bio-brick to build wood walls
reinforced. The development of the project led to F.E.M. analyses to evaluate its static and dynamic structural properties and resistance even to high winds up to 250 km/h, with consistently surprising results and confirming the high technical value of the patented invention. Passionate development of the BioBuildingBlock module has continued unceasingly since its invention, allowing for continuous improvement of its characteristics and performance, as revealed in the latest technical experimental tests conducted in collaboration with top Italian research centers, such as STRENGHT, Department of Excellence in Civil Engineering at the University of Salerno, ITC-CNR in Milan, and IUAV in Venice.

The goal of continuous and unceasing research and development for BioBuildingBlock is to ensure safe and sustainable construction technology for new buildings to be built.
