Evaluation of sports hall the Roomley – Tilburg investment (NL)

Posted on

As part of the project to renovate the Roomley sports hall, a report was drawn up to present the results of the building's energy performance. Result energy performance By using circular materials and improved integrated energy concepts, the building could be disconnected from the gas distribution network. The building largely generates its own energy through PV panels and is heated and cooled by means of a so-called heat pump installation. This more sustainable generation is possible because the use of straw as an insulation material has made an essential contribution to improving the complete insulation value of the building. This can be explained by the use of PV panels, the reuse of materials and the application of biobased materials. It also concerns renovation, which means that the profit on the first strategy is much greater than with new construction. The use of biobased building materials results in a much better score on the themes of environment, energy and especially health. By consciously choosing bio-based applications, we get healthier buildings and healthier products. Read More
