Building Remediation

Use of vacuum insulation panels in the energetic building renovation

When renovating the community centre, energy efficiency should be a priority. The award-winning architectural design planned to insulate the walls of the community centre from the inside in order to preserve the exterior appearance. Vacuum insulation was used in the associated vicarage and on the floor of the kindergarten. The buildings were equipped with a ventilation system with heat recovery. Solar heat and PV systems were installed on the roof. The effects of the renovation measures were verified by a monitoring from 2005 to 2007.
