STRONG POINTS From the energy point of view
-In roofs for resale.
-In acroterium for self-consumption and storage
-In the shade for resale.
-Heating and cooling is provided by a complex of active slabs and a PAC system on vertical probes in geocooling.This mode of emission ensures a very high comfort for the occupants (no draft, exchange by radiation) .
- Annual global energy balance Annual photovoltaic production is estimated at 520 MWh of primary energy when the annual consumption of the building (all uses) reaches 476 MWh of primary energy.
- Smooth on the year, the building is autonomous in energy and even surplus.
HIGHLIGHTS From an environmental point of view
From a digital point of view (BIM, etc.):
- A 10-month fine job to highlight this unique concept by modeling the whole building under a BIM model.
From the point of view of uses, practices:
- A system of centralized technical management of the building (GTC) ensures the control of the building, the management of the equipments, the measurements and controls of the data which allow the follow-up of the site in an optimal way to reach and optimize the expected performance in a logic of permanent improvement.
-A "Welcome Home" user's guide, intended for all users.
-A home screen that informs users and visitors in real time about the energy data of the building accessible remotely
