FAQ’s FOR SMART BUILDING
The building materials specified in the study and used in the construction are low energy embodied during the manufacturing stage. The methods in which they are combined during their application in the construction stages achieve a building with characteristics of high living conditions – hygiene (temperature, humidity, sound insulation, perspiration, waterproofing) and minimum required energy consumption.
Under the new Energy Performance of Buildings Act (KENAK) buildings are categorized according to the total energy they consume. The complete knowledge of modern certified materials, combined with their correct application, offer not just environmental friendliness but also low energy buildings which correspond to the highest classification categories (up to A ++) with all the advantages.
The study is based on simple natural axioms and mechanisms, which, combined with the most modern building materials, give excellent results. Orientation, ventilation, shading, planting, coloring, solar chimneys, geothermics and solar cells are elements – features of bioclimatic design.
Yes. Applied to any architectural solution without any geometric constraint. In addition, high interior aesthetics are ensured, providing clean surfaces without column and bead protrusions.
Great attention is paid to the use of modern high strength materials, laboratory certified. Universal studies of advanced and high-precision analyses are applied. The cutting of a structure (morhposis) is achieved by intelligent layouts of pillars, beams and joints combined with state-of-the-art seismic energy absorption mechanisms. Total capacity-demand control is done with modern earthquake regulation (EC8, FEMA) ensuring all predicted levels of performance.
Economics and speeds have significant advantages over conventional construction, taking into account factors such as location, local and special conditions, size, geometry, repeatability and use, could offer savings of up to 30% and a speed of up to 60% compared to a conventional construction.
Wall systems and the metal frame are combined to have the required tolerances and construction details to achieve maximum co-operation. Therefore, cracks due to different material elasticity measures are avoided.
It is a more complex, organized and multidisciplinary planning process, during which all phases of a building’s life cycle are studied. Of particular importance is the reversibility of proposed interventions, so that in the event of future intervention for their replacement, undesirable damage to the building will be minimized.
