Sustainable Renovation Grand Prize winner of the Green Solutions Awards 2017: Projet 55 (Belgium)

The Project 55 is a zero energy refurbishment of a heritage list mansion, within the centre of the city of Mons. The project combines extensive insulation, optimal air tightness, heat recovery ventilation and controlled constructive details. Additionally, a specifically dimensioned photovoltaic installation has been implemented to compensate the energy consumption of the building.

A dynamic simulation has been commissioned to evaluate the risks of overheating and the means to avoid them, through solar protection and free-cooling.

Beyond the high level of energy efficiency, the Project 55 integrates eco-materials (wood wool, cellulose, C2C certified plaster, FSC wood, clay-based coatings). Life cycle analysis was decisive in the choices made to limit the carbon footprint of the building.

The use of these materials also contributes to the health and comfort strategy of the building. The well-being of its users and visitors is a major goal for the Project 55, as it shelters the offices of the Homeco company and serves as a training facility in sustainable development and as a visitor center to disseminate best practices.
