Owner approach of sustainability
- Energy performance comparable to that of a new construction
- maximum day light
- Optimal air quality
- Sustainable materials
- Short construction phase
The solutions :
- Removal of all damaged items and all thermal bridges
- Conservation of the basic structure as a support and mass storage for hot and cold
- Refurbishing of the thermal envelope
- Contemporary architecture combined with functional design
- Inside: bright ambience and natural materials
The existing building had a very poor energy performance. Strong reduction of the energy consumption and use of sustainable materials will enable the reduction of maintenance costs. The existing facade elements have been dismantled and immediately replaced by new insulating wooden elements partly prefabricated. This method allowed to conduct parallel work within the building and reduce construction time.
A new facade has been implemented to improve the building's energy performance.
Front / Wood Elements: The unsealed and poorly insulated existing concrete structure was completely coated with a new thermal envelope made of prefabricated wooden elements with cellulose insulation. The reached U value is 0.15 W / m2 K ca.
External joinery: To ensure optimal use of natural light, the classrooms were fit with glass in their entire length and height. The wood-aluminium window frames, , with ventilation opening, are equiped with a triple glazing. They reach a U value of 0.9 W / m2 K. The external automatic protection against the sun prevents overheating in summer.
Roof: The existing flat roof was insulated with mineral wool, sealed with vegetated EPDM strips. It reaches a U value of 0.11 W / m 2 K.
Ventilation: To ensure a high air quality in rooms, a central ventilation system with high heat recovery was installed. The system is concealed in the false ceiling area above the existing furniture.
Lighting: The lighting of classrooms was completely dismantled in favour of extremely efficient lights. Presence detectors and automatic response to natural light is the guarantee for an economic use.

Rollingergrund is located in the northwest part of the city of Luxembourg and is the second largest area after Cessange. Rollingergrund is a very green area. It has many parks because of its location in the valley. Many green areas are scattered through the hills. The Bambësch forest is a part of the natural heritage. It gives Rollingergund an important place in the city of Luxembourg, because it is the central area of relaxation of the capital.
