The project “School Vent Cool” develops different high performance renovation strategies for school buildings. New solutions for ventilation systems, natural cooling and application of prefabricated modules will be investigated.
Alll over Europe energy and education related developments require adaptations of our school buildings. Most of them have been built during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, they are now expected to be modernised and renovated.
Based on a building typology the project “School vent cool” develops different high performance renovation strategies. Pre-fabrication or modular design components are important parts of these concepts. New solutions for ventilation systems and natural cooling requirements to protect from overheating will be investigated, integrated into the concepts and tested in field trials and demonstration projects.
This project is established in the framework of the EraNet Eracobuild joint call for proposals on Sustainable Renovation (Dec 2009 / June 2010). The duration is September 2010 - Frebruary 2013
