Holedeck is a sustainable technology that improves the energetic behaviour of building's, which approach various cetification standards.

 

 

– NZEB

The term NZEB (Nearly Zero Energy Building) refers to buildings that present a very high level of energy efficiency and almost zero energy consumption. The energy consumed comes mostly from renewable sources, produced in situ or in the environment.

The employment of Holedeck is aligned with the reduction of energy-waste in buildings.

The 40% of the energy consumed in the European Union comes from construction. Its decrease is a priority in order to reduce the existing energy dependence. For this purpose, the European Directive 2010/31 / EU relating to the energy efficiency of buildings was published, whereby, all member states should take steps to ensure that from 2020 all new buildings will have nearly zero energy consumption (by 2018 for public buildings).

Energy consumption of a building includes the construction process, as well as the energy demanded and maintenance required during it's life-cycle. From a holistic approach of sustainability , by achieving reductions in many aspects, Holedeck improves behavior in all phases.

– PASSIVHAUS :

The Passivhaus certification is a global benchmark that recognizes passive buildings. Supervised by the Passive House Institute of Germany, it seeks to achieve the highest comfort of the inhabitants of a building with a constructive design that allows a significant reduction in energy consumption.

A certified Passivhaus building maximizes the climatic conditions of an area, consdering the sun, light, temperature, orientation, etc. It also consideres heating or cooling systems that do not require active resources or energy.

A key point of the Passivhaus Institute is to design and construct buildings of low consumption at affordable costs, therefore, employing Holedeck can achieve the Passivhaus certification of a building.

Holedeck slab design has been specifically developed to provide the easy installation of high performance air circulation systems, including thermal recovering systems.

– LEED

The LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a method of evaluating the sustainability of a building through objective design patterns and quantifiable parameters.

The final evaluation of the LEED certification is given by the USGBS (U.S. Green Building Council), an independent organization that inlcudes agents participating on sustainability and the construction of nonprofit projects that promote the implementation of practices of excellence in design and sustainable construction.

The LEED certification is based on incluiding in the project aspects related to:

  • sustainable development of open spaces
  • the efficient use of water
  • energy efficiency
  • the use of alternative energy
  • improving indoor environmental quality
  • the selection of materials and waste management during the construction

Holedeck involves potential improvement in the process of assessment of buildings for LEED certification in:

– BREEAM

The BREEAM certification (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) is the set of standards created by BRE (Building Research Establishment), an English nonprofit entity, whose activity is focused on education and research of sustainable buildings and regulates its environmental certifications.

BREEAM assesses the environmental impacts in different categories, ranging from urban planning to new and existing buildings.

The evaluation method is selected considering the system and criterias to analyze, depending on the different building types and their usage, in order to optimize the evaluation of the performance of the different types of buildings and / or sites.

BREEAM analyzes the different requirements of sustainability according to the different phases of the building, from design to execution, and subsequent maintenance.
