Construction21

After France, the other chapters of the Construction21 networks have lifted the veil on the winners in their country! A victory that is in fact double, since a qualification for the international phase comes with a national award.    Juries of experts, chosen worldwide and divided into the different categories, now have the difficult task of analysing the finalist projects, in order to ultimately select the winning buildings, districts and infrastructures for the Green Solutions Awards.

Energy consumption is growing rapidly in the Caribbean, both as a result of population growth and the very strong economic growth of the last twenty years. Committed to a sustainable development approach, France must implement strategies to limit energy consumption in these overseas departments, which are characterized by their tropical climate and their tendency to use expensive and polluting air conditioning systems.

In more than 4 billion years, Nature has acquired certain know-how in design. So why not apply it to human productions? This is the essence of biomimetism. Used by scientific research, this know-how is also highly appreciated in architecture. To what extent does Nature have efficient models to teach us in order to limit our energy consumption? Answer in this article following an interview with Nicolas Vernoux-Thélot, architect and founder of the firm In Situ Architecture and designer of the Nianing church.

The impact of building materials on climate change is a major challenge for the construction sector, as they are responsible for more than 50% of a building's greenhouse gas emissions over its entire life cycle. In a sustainable development approach, it is therefore preferable today to develop local supply chains for biosourced materials, which have many economic and ecological advantages.

In Senegal, 75% of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions are generated by building activities. With strong urban growth, construction is particularly dynamic in West Africa.   However, construction techniques, often modelled after Western countries, appear to be poorly adapted to tropical and Sahelian climates: a transformation of architectural design and material choices is therefore necessary, in order to enhance both the comfort and energy efficiency of the building.

In Senegal, the construction sector is booming. Today, concrete is used on construction sites, but although it is produced locally and cheaply, it is very polluting. The global cement industry is responsible for 6% of all greenhouse gas emissions.

With the "BIOREV Tropics" project, Nomadeis, BioBuild Concept and the Laboratoire d'Écologie Urbaine de La Réunion, have studied the particularities of insularity and the difficult problem of developing local sectors. Here is a summary of this document, which is one of the first steps towards full recognition of the specificities of construction in French tropical areas.

The bioclimatic approach is particularly suitable for construction in tropical or hot climates. With more than thirty years of experience, Alain Bornarel is a privileged witness of the evolution of this approach.

Here is a candidate who has a lot to teach us. This candidate, who had been in contact with our Luxembourg partner NEOBUILD, presented the project to his management during an internal meeting on technical management. Dossier validated, they embarked in the third edition of the CUBE 2020 competition! After 8 months of competition, this building saved more than 21% of energy at the end of August, and it is not finished! The excellent work on the consumption stubs will bear fruit until the end of the competition.
