INFINITE Case Study: Slovenia

About this case

The Slovenian demo case is a medium size, multi-use building owned by multiple owners. Built during the 1970-1980, it is composed by offices on the ground floor, plus 40 single residential units divided among four floors and an attic area. Although the building is connected to a district heating system, the overall energy performance is poor because of badly insulated envelope and windows. STRUCTURE Steel-reinforced concrete frame with brick masonry.

The challenge

  • Presence of district heating: how to assure a coordinated energy system control in case of a high temperature district heating connection?
  • Very small apartments: are INFINITE technical solutions scalable to fit small apartments?
  • Multi owners building: how to ensure economic viability and low risk in case of multi-owner buildings?

RENOVATION CONCEPT

INFINITE’s all-industrialised BIPV kit will be installed on the façade on the south side of the building. On the other façade, the thermal insulation will be enhanced thanks to the passive kit. The distribution kit will be mounted where needed to provide heating and cooling to the apartments. The balconies on the northern façade will be transformed into loggias. For the roof, both BIPV and the green kit are being evaluated. Three different kinds of smart windows will be tested in selected pilot dwellings.
