Building energy demand could be reduced by 50% compared to a basic rehabilitation action with SATE systems, that currently can already reach energy demand values in buildings of around 30 kWh / m2 / year.
INBISA, through its construction company BYCO, leads the R & D project “New High Energy Efficiency Envelope in Buildings, REHABITA” in cooperation with the companies KIDE, Zuhaizki, Maab Arquitectura, Ekotek, Mecanizados Martiartu and EMS2, Technology Centres Gaiker, Tekniker and Tecnalia, and the Construction Cluster of Euskadi, Eraikune.
The project is funded by the Basque Government through the Department of Economic Development and Competitiveness, in collaboration with SPRI (Basque Business Development Agency), through the program ETORGAI 2015 in “Support for the realization of integrated industrial research projects and experimental development of a strategic nature in the Basque Country, “and consists ” in the development of a new facade designed both for rehabilitation and for new buildings with high energy performance “says INBISA in a statement.
“The companies that form the consortium – the company points out- are working on the design of a new industrialized envelope, focusing research on new insulation materials and architectural skins, as well as on control and energy management of its behavior. Another factor which is being emphasized on is the financing system of such actions, mainly on rehabilitation of facades “.
Energy demand halved
With this new facade they are working on, INBISA ensures that the energy demand of the building may be reduced to 50% compared to a performance of basic rehabilitation with SATE systems, which currently can already reach energy demand values of around 30 kWh / m2 / year in buildings.
Finally, INBISA´s construction company point out as “relevant factors of the new solution, improved thicknesses, insulating materials, sustainability, industrialized construction based on BIM methodology and Industry 4.0 that will allow improve much on efficiency and comfort and health of users. “
