Energy-intensive building

This is the reconversion of an old farmhouse in order to install there the House of Students of Paris Est Marne-La-Vallée. The main buildings have been preserved except the East Wing whose condition did not allow the conservation. The reconstructed parts respect the initial morphology of the frame. Conserving these buildings is primarily afford the luxury of large volumes and beautiful frames. The first step consists in taking up the building underpinning work and to cover a unitary roof over the entire length. This unitary unit covers old and new construction, provides light, gives thermal and acoustic comfort. The roof acts as a regulator: it is covered with an expanded aluminum mesh whose geometry allows effective sun protection in summer and let the light penetrate in winter.

It is a tchnical roof under which circulate ventilation network and cable ducts. This principle allows the walls to keep their massiveness without having to rip them again. This takes advantage of their tremendous inertia. Lined with concrete of hemp complex and with lime-hemp coating, walls also act as regulators and allow hygric exchange between inside and outside: the walls breathe.

This lining coverage fits well with the walls and contrasts with the correctness of the roof. Extensible, lime allows the deformations of the frame associated to all these transformations.

In new parts, pumice stone blocks and the use of raw and natural materials complete the structure.

At the time of the «throwaway society», the project is designed as a tool for students capable of evolving with the practices and changes in allocations. The result is a building for a very long time.

This is the reconversion of an old farmhouse in order to install there the House of Students of Paris Est Marne-La-Vallée.

Life Cycle Analysis

Indoor Air quality

    Insulation and finishing work products improve the quality of indoor air: The hemp concrete and hemp-lime plaster, and partitioned space and suspended ceilings CLINEO type Knauff participates to a decrease of VOC in the building throughout the life cycle.

Health & Comfort

    The light quality has been checked by FLJ calculations by local and according to occupation modes (offices, multifunctional hall, dance hall ...). The summer comfort is ensured by the expanded aluminum mesh which protects the roof of sunlight in the summer period. The buildings are all through and the natural ventilation is optimized.

    Voir RT jointe

    The acoustic comfort target reaches the level « efficient» with an improvement of 3dB: offices have suspended acoustic ceilings on over 75% of surface and 50% for traffic (organic panels from Knauff: sound absorption index balanced, according to NF EN ISO 11654: µW > 1.00) The entire roof is treated with a complex of CIN in ARVAL 323J, with micro-perforated plate plus mineral wool soffit . The use of lime-hemp coating also improves the acoustic comfort inside.

    Second œuvre / Cloisons, isolation

    Hemp concrete is an insulating building material in the mass. Called sometimes eco-hybride1 (because compound of a plant product and an mineral binder) he is composed of shives (central and wooded parts of the rod of hemp, very light and insulating because of a rich capillary size of 10 μm and 50 μm) and aerial and hydraulic lime. It is an alternative to conventional materials. It finds its place in wide range of construction solutions satisfying the need for energy conservation, the need for sustainable development and the demand for building healthy habitat. This material is used for the construction of buildings labeled «BBC Effinergie», according to RT 2012 thermal regulations in application for all types of construction from January 1, 2013.

    In study phase the building owner accepted this requirement taking into account the reservations of the control office, reservations that were raised due to the production by the PV manufacturer and technical advice in the end phase study.

    Gros œuvre / Charpente, couverture, étanchéité

    The GLOBALROOF Acoustic and thermal systems are multi-skin steel roofing solutions. These complexes possess high performance not only thermal insulation but also, if desired, acoustic treatment, both in isolation in absorption. The GLOBALROOF Acoustic and thermal systems can provide a personalized response to the requirements of thermal and acoustic regulations in force. They usually consist of an incorporated inner skin seal support or HACIERBA trays, thermal insulation may include several insulators beds, possible intermediate spacers and a roof profile or membrane sealing.

​Mainly renovated building meets the requirements of THPE 2005 label. He is certified by Certivéa HQE tertiary building and responds primarily to the requirements of a bioclimatic architecture to get the most passive inputs. In winter the roof glazing 4/16/4 heats up under the effect of the light and is protected from the highest sun’s rays in summer by the mesh material that ensures its solar shading function.

The air space (+ de14cm) between the roof and fishnet ensures natural cooling of the roof by convection. However, this solar shading function was taken into account in the regulatory calculations only in the form of solar factor for glazings while the reality is more complex. This roof hides all installations (primary ventilation, fresh air intake and extraction, ...).

The existing buildings are insulated with hemp concrete covered with lime hemp coats (Tradical BCB) which encourages hygric exchanges between inside and outside throughout the year for better thermal comfort. The thickness of existing walls is utilized to provide the inertia to all the building. The hemp concrete works like a carbon sink and significantly improves the quality of indoor air.

In rebuilt parts the insulation is made with pumice blocks (Cogetherm block) that require very little fossil energy for processing.

On all large volumes, these construction systems optimize the performance of two condensing boilers that are combined to a double flow ventilation with heat recovery. No cooling system is provided, with the exception of night operation cooling of air handling units. The inertia of the buildings allows an extraordinary phase of «déphasage».

In addition, natural ventilation is highlighted by time-delayed opening systems arranged on the roof on North sides. It allows the evacuation of the heat accumulated in the roof space by an additional air-wash during heat waves.

The frames have been preserved, redressed and renovated in situ with wooden pieces from the demolished lots.

The windows are made from powder-coated steel with thermal breaks to combine high reliability and performance.

Finishings products are often left raw and they come from suppliers with a high commitment in recycling processes (acoustic insulation Organic, partitions and suspended ceilings Cleaneo from Knauf, linoleum floors).

The layout is made with entire panels to limit falls.

The steel roofing complex and the aluminium rooftop raw were chosen for they good lifetime and an infinite variety of possibilities of recyclability.
