Short description of the pilot project
Global renovation with high environmental objectives (energy performance: near passive house and including ecological materials)

Process and planning quality
Current phase: definition of the program with the owner to define his order for the project management team. The design of the renovation by the project management team will start in spring 2014; construction will start in spring 2015.
Last step: monitoring of the building and its equipment, objectives in terms of energy efficiency should be reached the low consumption building standard.

Implementation of service package
All the modules of service package will be implemented:
1 step: Program definition (need, constraints, feasibility studies, energy performance, environmental quality), support on sustainable public procurement
2 step: support on the different conception project steps and during the construction
3 step: implementation of a monitoring system

Energy and Utilities

a)    Primary energy demand
Mixed mode heating with wood heating with  solar hot water,  mecanical ventilation double flow, low consumption lighting

b)   Renewable energy
solar hot water for water production

Health and comfort
There is no need on thermal summertime comfort considering the geographical location (1500m altitude). Acoustic comfort is achieved through the realisation of efficient double glazing. The roof insulation and walls will be performing in acoustic et thermal level.

Building materials and constructions
The use of wood will be advised, like ecological materials to preserve the health of users. The proximity of production of these materials will be a factor of choice (local resource).
