What we did As the setting for everyday life, the spaces are designed to emphasize and enhance the identity of the institution, and challenge the children’s senses. The compact form is chosen in order to optimise the interior and reduce unnecessary corridors (unusable for anything but circulation), as well as to minimise energy consumption. Why we did it

Saint Gobain Isover a/s is the instigator of the project which builds on international experience Behind the initiative is Saint Gobain Isover a/s. In its capacity as the world’s leading producer of insulation materials, the ISOVER group has a natural interest in promoting knowledge of how to reduce a building’s energy consumption. At international level, ISOVER is an active contributor to many projects using passive heating. Know-how and experience are harnessed together in the concept of the ISOVER MultiComfort House.

Building controls have a crucial role in helping buildings to be more energy efficient by making sure that all building services equipment operates at optimum level. By using open communication protocols, such as BACnet or Lon Works, HVAC, lighting, life safety, access, security and other building system control devices can interoperate, enabling facility owners to achieve improved energy efficiency.

Focusing on energy consumption and indoor thermal climate the following topics have been investigated: • Light and Heavy floor heating system • Insulation thickness in the floor construction • Linear thermal transmittance at foundation/floor construction • Control of the floor heating system Supply temperature Supply temperature controlled by the outdoor temperature Night lowering of the room temperature Start/stop difference (Dead band) • Room temperature and energy consumption • Floor coverings
