Owner approach of sustainability
Sustainable approach to the energy and energy efficiency section of the building, building through international standards such as Passivhaus, which minimizes the demands for climate control and the integration of renewable energies to reduce the rest of the building's energy consumption. Energy consumption in residential and commercial buildings continues to represent approximately 40% of total final energy consumption and 36% of the total CO2 emissions of the European Union, with the consequent effect on climate change. Given this scenario, there is a growing collective interest to act in a responsible manner from the environmental point of view, taking into account the rational use of energy and the improvement of the quality of life of people. In this sense, Grupo Lobe wants to have a key and differentiating role, assuming these challenges as its own and incorporating them into its business model, with the ambition and commitment to become a company that promotes the construction of high energy efficiency and low carbon.
STRATEGIC ENERGY EFFICIENCY PLAN
In order to respond to this commitment, during this year the Strategic Energy Efficiency Plan adopted in 2015 has been put into practice, which proposes the promotion of highly efficient buildings, with almost zero energy consumption (nZEB) and which anticipates the European Directive 2010/31 / EU of mandatory compliance for the year 2020, thus exceeding the normative requirements recently published in the Basic Energy Saving Document of the Technical Building Code (CTE) of June 2017, relating to the definition of the almost zero consumption building.
The implementation of the building of almost zero consumption in the promotions has been made by adopting the German construction standard Passivhaus, the world's most demanding certificate in terms of comfort and energy efficiency. This standard has already been taken as normative reference by other countries of the European Union. Passivhaus guarantees energy savings of up to 90% compared to existing buildings and requires greater rigor in quality control and execution of work, through the application of 5 basic principles: high degree of insulation in the thermal envelope, high performance in carpentry and glazing, waterproofing solutions that reduce air infiltration, thermal bridge free design and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery. Given the versatility of the passivhaus standard, not establishing a method or a constructive system, and leaving this choice at the discretion of the designer, it has been possible to implement constructive solutions of local tradition that meet the requirements and limitations defined in the standard regardless of the system constructive employee.
Likewise, the Lobe group continues to carry out constant research into new construction procedures that involve a substantial improvement in the energy performance of buildings, advocating innovative industrialized methods that allow environmental benefits through the reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions during the construction processes.
Additionally, and despite the fact that the current CTE regulations do not contemplate it, there are more and more arguments in favor of working on the tightness of the building envelope as required by the standard: minimize energy losses, reduce the risk of interstitial condensation or avoid the entry of aggressive external agents or contamination.
The energy performance of the facilities is considered one more factor to take into account in the improvement of the energy efficiency of the building, consequently, the design of thermal installations that work at a low temperature and that incorporate high performance equipment such as aerotermia guaranteeing great energy savings and complementing the low energy demand of a building designed by passivhaus criteria. At the same time, unique advances are promoted in one of the future challenges, the integration of renewable energies, such as solar thermal energy or photovoltaic solar energy that will increase energy savings and favor local energy production.
1500 VIVIVENDAS ECCN
At this moment Grupo Lobe is pioneering the promotion and construction of the first residential buildings in height through the Passivhaus standard in the community of Aragón and other communities such as Madrid or the Valencian community, establishing itself as a reference company for the sector.
In this way, the LOBE Group feels the responsibility to continue generating value, confidence and commercial differentiation through increasingly sustainable practices, responding to a growing demand in society. Their determination to respect the environment and change the energy model for the benefit of society is reflected in the prioritization of energy efficient and sustainable construction techniques and in working under standards or internationally recognized labels that value not only the consumption of energy in the use phase, but also in its construction phase, including other aspects such as the integral management of the water cycle.
In order to evaluate the effectiveness of these techniques, the implementation of Technologies that allow to measure and value the comfort, environmental, energy, water and on-site energy generation parameters of buildings is adopted.
The project proposal responds to the requirements of the residential area plan developed under bioclimatic criteria, respecting their areas of movement, orientation, setbacks, flights, maximum heights, occupancy and buildability indicated by regulations that facilitate the achievement of a building with very high energy efficiency by putting value on its passive architecture.
The project is organized in a single block with predominance of its facades in the North-South components, with dwellings arranged in a linear scheme of two dwellings per communication core optimizing space and its functionality. The houses are distributed by differentiating the area from night to day, with terraces of great depth in the South orientation and the incorporation of collector galleries in this same orientation that contribute to minimize the heating demands. The general envelope of the building is set by a ventilated facade finished in white very beneficial for the summer period in the climatic location of Zaragoza. A very differentiated treatment has been made between the North and South facades, based on the needs of access to the sun and solar blockade that contribute to the formal and plastic expression of the building.

The simplicity in the implementation of techniques and local constructive solutions has been sought to achieve the passivhaus standard without compromising the economic profitability of the promotion. With this aim, high levels of insulation have been incorporated into the thermal envelope with low thermal transmittances of U = 0.22-0.23 W / (m2K), high performance in the openings through high performance carpentry with U = 1.0 W / (m2K) and glasses of low thermal transmittance with U = 0.6 W / (m2K). We have tried a construction free of thermal bridges trying and justifying all existing cases to ensure compliance with energy losses, risk of surface condensation, appearance of mold and temperatures of comfort getting energy losses by thermal bridges over the global the demand only represent 3.5%. It is counted on the other hand with 82% efficiency in the heat recovery of the mechanical ventilation installation once installed, guaranteed by a continuous ventilation of the fully controlled air due to the high level of sealing of the building.
The minimum contribution of energy necessary to guarantee comfort conditions has been solved by active measures of high efficiency such as the collective installation of heating with condensing boiler and terminal units by underfloor heating that allow working at low temperature or high air conditioning equipment efficiency. The reduction in the consumption of electricity is also addressed by the incorporation of high efficiency appliances and LED lighting.
Likewise, renewable energy integration has been carried out to cover a contribution of 70% of the ACS demand through collective solar thermal installation.
As a result, a good energy balance has been obtained, where in addition to applying the principles of the standard, other general passive design criteria have been incorporated consistent with the climate location of Zaragoza that guarantee a high efficiency of the building in the Mediterranean climate and especially in the case of refrigeration.
