Technical advice I Energy and sustainable building
Bureau Bouwtechniek is sustainability consultant for the development of the sports hall Rode Loop in Merksem.
BB first analyzes the wide range of sustainability efforts to determine which aspects suit this project the best.
We strive for an integral sustainable approach. The building must be experienced by all users as pleasant and comfortable in daily use with a proper balance between ecological, economic and socio-cultural sustainability. We are looking for a balance between cost in the short and long term.
As many insertions as possible are incorporated into the design.
After the selection of sustainable efforts, BB will monitor the execution using the sustainability meter of the Flemish government, since 2016 the new manual for building in the future. This tool allows the different durable aspects to be measured and enables us to relate them to each other during the different phases of a building - design, execution and usage. We are convinced that this working method is the key to the realization of a sustainable building.
The dynamic temperature calculations are performed using the Capsol (Physibel) software package.
BB was appointed as sustainability consultant at the first preliminary draft.
