The school group Chengdu has very high energy performance, it is part of one of the new eco-neighborhoods of the city of Montpellier, the Eco-districtThis 3,080m² school group he positive energy building school regroups a kindergarten and an elementary school, for a total of 11 classes. The school is connected to the wood trigeneration urban heating network of Montpellier and is built in constrained site (important effects masks linked to neighboring buildings) has 290m² roof solar panels that can produce 20% more energy than the total consumption of school.
The school was designed and built so that comfort is ideal in summer as in winter while reducing energy requirements. The school complex is equipped with various innovative equipment (room control, GTC for heating, solar shading, natural ventilation, CO2 probe, counts and under counts, lighting dimming, window contact on windows shutting down the heater in case opening ...) allowing it to guarantee such results.
Coaching of the various users of the building was carried out to allow an appropriation of operation of the building and to help optimize comfort and energy savings. A guide for users has been set up and an explanatory comic for pupils. This school was the recipient of the call for Ecocity project launched by the state.
Chengdu The school is part of the Eco-district Park Marianne
Sustainable development approach of the project ownerObjectives: Positive Energy Buliding + 20%, all energy in a stress plot: 2000 sqm plot and large mask (Ground floor + 12 and Ground floor + 8 in the south), very tight deadlines.
1- Heating needs of 13kWh / m2
2- Natural lighting Autonomy 70% minimum,
3- Renewable energy production: 120% minimum consumption
4- Level of air-tightness less than 0.8m3 / h / m2
This is the 3rd positive energy building built by the city of Montpellier; the first had been carried out internally by the services of the city of Montpellier and the second was carried out by architect contests and works contract in separate trades
Architectural descriptionThe Chengdu school group is located in the ZAC Parc Marianne of the city of Montpellier. It fits completely in the dynamic of the place by presenting an urban and attractive architecture.
The heights, the colors, the materials, and the stratified architecture participates to the integration of the building in its environment. Built in ground forces (small plot of 2000m², surrounding high buildings) this school has been able to be optimized to accommodate students of 11 classes of the school group, and presents an interesting compact to limit the heat loss of the building.
The school is built on 3 levels and has intermediate levels with playgrounds and a bioclimatic garden. Each element of the frame has been designed to optimize space and contribute to user comfort. Sunscreen premises is ensured by wide overhangs roof and adjustable sun breezes. The south orientation of the main facade of the school allows a high amount of natural light and heat in winter. Circulations are located in buffer zones north of the building.
The 300m² of photovoltaic cells were incorporated into the roof of the R + 2.

Throughout the phase of construction, Enexco accompanied all stakeholders concerned with good airtightness of the building:
1 - Step with educational slide show presentation of the importance of air sealing (including the smooth operation of double air handling units flows)
2 - Definition and trials with fellow responsible for the installation of glazing, good compribande seal affixed between the joinery and the frame (four tests were needed to confirm the right product)
3- air tightness test on a classroom test including smoke, with the room depressurization to visualize abnormal air inlets
4 - Test on a third of the building with the same procedures and measurements of air tightness (required value less than 0.8 V.h / m² under 4 Pa)
5 - Test the entire school and after various corrections obtaining a value of 0.5
Excellent contribution as a pedagogical and technical in particular to show the corrections to be made in phase construction as the choice of good materials and good procedures to get the right result

Génie climatique, électricité / Eclairage
Room by room management of lighting according to the natural outdoor light and the presence of the occupants: the lighting is switched on if these two conditions are met.
In the classrooms, the detectors are two areas (corridor side and side window) and also the auxiliary contact is controlled by the presence detector and permits in the absence of stop heating from 9.00
Remote control for the adjustment of these detectors and training for city staff responsible for its maintenance.

Génie climatique, électricité / Chauffage, eau chaude
1 - Establishment of a system of regulation and metering of all the school's consumption with control room by room regulation (indoor temperature, vacancy off, modulation of the air flow by CO2 detector probe stop in case of window opening). Measurement of all consumption of heating, electricity and school water: counters dealers (purchase and resale of electricity, district heating and two water meters (green space and building))
This regulation allows using a touchscreen boiler rooms drivers can know the time (locally or remotely over the Internet) the proper functioning of equipment, visualize on a block material in place and to be alerted in case of malfunction (by email). This tool set in particular the technician of the energy department of the city of Montpellier, enabled rapid appropriation of such equipment. The BEPOS control of the building is done monthly for all types of energy and verified that the building was well BEPOS + 20% on a full year.

Management / Implication des parties prenantes
SHI was chosen by the city (Izuba) to:
- 1 - Define the contractual performance as would ensure the MOE (four targets to achieve 20% of which BEPOS, airtight, light factor of the day and BBC - 20%).
- 2 - Each failure criterion was amenable to a penalty of 15000 (e) in case of non compliance.
- 3 - This AMO has accompanied the city throughout the construction phase and during operation the first years.
This support has been extremely beneficial for the city to ensure the quality and performance as the frame as well as equipment to help us start-up of facilities and monitoring of performance required

To be building positive energy + 20% the Chengdu school has 290m² of photovoltaic panels on two separate roofs. The 177 modules produced 75.8 MWh in 2015, despite a binding region (many masks). PV production is closely monitored. To detect an inverter default interface, available online, has not been established to monitor production in real time and check the efficiency of the inverters. Cleaning of the panels is carried out once a year to ensure better productivity.
Photovoltaic panels to ensure performance building positive energy of the school. A production monitoring is important.
This project wishes to integrate into its environment without being concealed from the public eye. It is indeed important that such equipment can be perceived and seen by everyone. A school is a vital program within a neighborhood. It is unifying, it plays a leading role in society.
The proposed site, relatively "landlocked" in the center of the BIA Marianne Park, located in the heart of a vocation of housing environment.
Rectangular in shape it has a building zone enough stress, both by its grip by its height. The buildable area in relatively small ground and architectural recommendations of the BIA have naturally led us to propose a project that is fitted to all available grip:
- Project Implementation on the entire floor area available
- Device Cradle "full" on the North and East facades
- Court and classrooms in the South
- Use of the possibility of semi bury rooms to offer for a perfect internal organization
This school project is rooted in a real urban neighborhood. It must meet its immediate environment as by its architecture and its volumes.

Reasons for participating in the competition(s)Energy & Temperate Climates : The Chengdu School Group, built in a constraint urban environment, is a real positive energy building, the photovoltaic production covers 120% of the total yearly consumptions of the building. Different technologies were used in this building to reach great winter and summer comfort while achieving low consumptions. For winter comfort, the building is insulated from the outside, the glass bays have reinforced insulation, the sub-station is linked to the SERM heating urban network using biomass renewable energy and hot water heaters; heating regulation is done room by room, depending on presence and indoor temperature. For summer comfort, the building offers strong inertia and automated orientable mobile sun-breakers to efficiently protect from the sun.
