Building Remediation

Renovation of an office building into a low-energy house

The 4-storey building from the 1960s has been structurally and energetically renovated. The building is used for administration and the vehicle fleet of a waste disposal company,  The primary energy value was reduced from 440 kWh/(m² a) to 86 kWh/(m² a) through the renovation. Despite the large reduction, there is still room for improvement.
Instead of decentralised ventilators, passive cooling was used. This system can be applied to the renovation of many (public) buildings.
