Short description of the pilot project
Renovation of the existing canteen with ecological materials for the insulation, equipment inside.
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 winter 2013/2014. Construction will start in spring 2014. Last step: monitoring of the building and its equipment
Objectives in terms of energy efficiency should be reached: low Consumption Building (BBC renovation=64 kWh/m²/an) and variation according to the altitude
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; step 2: support on the different conception project steps and during the construction; step 3: implementation of a monitoring system
Energy and Utilities
c) Primary energy demand
wood boiler and hot solar water, mechanical ventilation double flow, low consumption lighting, presence detection
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).
The project is located near a site classified as historical monuments, there Vauban Citadel of Mont-Louis, heritage by Unesco
