engineering of a passive office building

Intro

This winner of the MIPIM Best Innovative Green Building 2016 Award is also Brussels' first Net Zero Energy building. The energy concept was developed on the basis of specialised dynamic simulations, as from the very first design stage. For example, the office project is crowned with a superstructure covered with architecturally perfectly integrated solar panels.

The Treurenberg-project is Brussels first "Net-Zero Energy"-building. VK is in charge of the energy engineering and the building services of this 12,000 sq. m. project.

The energetic concept was developed from the first design stage onwards, based on specialised dynamic simulations. As a result, the net energy needs could be determined under optimal circumstances. The high performance building services consist, amongst others, of cogeneration, perfectly architecturally integrated photovoltaic solar panels, and optimally regulated lighting, ventilation and comfort with regard to the atrium.

All of these applications minimize the energy consumption in order to realise a "Net-Zero Energy Building" and to get a BREEAM "Excellent" assessment.
