A bioclimatic project, pragmatic, simple, focused on quantifiable results:
Our experience feedback on various projects shows that the expected results in terms of energy savings and durability of the works are not always obvious, often due to the complexity of the technical systems proposed and the resulting operating difficulties.
Our approach is both simple and pragmatic: as the cheapest energy is the energy that is not consumed, we choose a passive design: strong insulation, cladded facade, collection of solar radiation, airtightness, and relevant technical choices:
– Natural ventilation by windcatcher equipped with energy autonomous auxiliary fans,
– Four carefully distributed boiler rooms,
– Q.RAD. digital radiators.
We propose an energy mix by using renewable energies (photovoltaic and aerothermal), fatal energy by QRADs and by minimising the fossil fuels used by boiler rooms.
The orientation of the buildings, the dimensioning of openings, the choice and design of solar protection for the walls and technical components are the result of contextual research.
This approach applies as much to new buildings as it does to restructured areas: from solar protection to air treatment, insulation and heating, the energy renovation is global and the technical management of the complex is centralised.
The boiler rooms and the ducts for the students’ sanitary facilities are accessible from outside the building, by road, thus facilitating maintenance and possible outsourcing. All the technical rooms are accessible without interfering with the school’ s operations
