Building Remediation

Energy concept with ecological heat and cold generation for the remediation of a commercial building

The project comprised the renovation of a building from 1930, in which an optician's shop and an oculist practice were operating next to a long vacant movie theatre.
The commercial building, which has not been renovated for a long time, was covered with facade, roof and basement insulation, new thermal insulation windows and doors were installed and the roof was completely covered by a solar system and a roof planting. The gas heating was replaced by a heat pump. The water required for this is obtained from a newly built well, which also supplies the necessary amount of water for air conditioning. The effects of the renovation were recorded by means of data acquisition via the modern building control system.
