✔ Fulfillment of the plus-energy standard , the planning of the building technology takes place under application of a KfW-Effizienzhaus 40 Plus standard and fulfills the Plus package. It is assumed that in practice, almost a negative annual final energy requirement is achieved.
✔ Reduction of CO2 emissions
✔ Implementation of renewable resources implemented in the building envelope.
✔ Use of a photovoltaic system and battery storage . The battery system allows the use of more than 50% electric current .
✔ The heat is supplied by the in-house solar thermal system . Surpluses are fed into the district heating network. ✔ Decentralized water heating to further reduce energy consumption.
✔ Rainwater infiltration. All rainwater is in a combination of superficial infiltration and trenches.
✔ Low operating costs due to the high and future-oriented construction quality of the project.
✔ Resource optimization in the planning phase. The facade elements could be carried out non-supporting due to the Schottenbauweise in order to reduce their overall strength.
✔ The future adaptability of the apartments was considered in the floor plan design.
Achitecture / DESIGN
✔ Development of individual solutions according to the needs of the clients.
✔ Innovative façade system through the integration of PV modules in the façade.
✔ Integrative planning approach implemented together with builders, 3 architects' offices and specialist engineers and integrated into a research project of the DBU.
