Passive House standard

The energy concept of the new water park in Bamberg includes a very high performance building envelope regarding both thermal insulation level and building airtightness level. This allows to have high relative humidity values (up to 64%) without causing condensation. The user-dependent ventilation is divided into zones and realised by 11 different mechanical ventilation systems. The heat demand is covered by a biomass combined heat and power unit and three gas condensing boilers.

In Bamberg wurde ein neues Hallenbad in Passivhausbauweise errichtet. Das Bad verfügt über eine energieeffiziente Gebäudetechnik mit bedarfsgerechter Lüftung (mit insgesamt 11 Lüftungsgeräten), die auf die unterschiedlichen Zonen Freizeitbereich, Umkleiden, Foyer, etc. abgestimmt ist. Grundlage des Energiekonzeptes ist eine thermisch hochwertige und dichte Gebäudehülle ohne Wärmebrücken. Dadurch kann eine hohe Raumluftfeuchte ohne Tauwasser gefahren werden. Seit Ende 2011 ist das Bad geöffnet und wird detailliert nicht zuletzt zur Betriebsoptimierung gemessen.
