Short description of the pilot project
Preservation of architectural forms with the goal of a efficiency energy and a high environmental materials and local.

Town House Porta4Process and planning quality
The project is currently in the planning process. The design of the project by the project management team will be held in spring 2014. Work will start in spring 2015. Performance tests will take place at 3 years after completion. The objective of energy performance is the thermal regulation of the existing + 30% of improvement.

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;Town house_Porta 2
3 step: implementation of a monitoring system

Energy and Utilities

a)    Primary energy demand
Mixed mode heating with wood heating with other energy supplement to clarify, mechanical ventilation double flow, low consumption lighting, presence detection.

Health and comfort
There is no need on thermal summertime comfort considering the geographical location at 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.

Test of special methods
The use of slate for roofing will be favoured, as well as the development of ancient stone walls. An exterior insulation for some fronts (without challenge patrimonial) will be sought for better thermal performance.
