In Bulgaria, around 1,400 buildings are being renovated and retrofitted since 2017 according to the Bulgarian Construction Chamber (BCC) as nearly 70% of the building stock was built before 1979.   The successful improvement of building performance and the adoption of renewable energy are especially challenging due to the skills shortage in the Bulgarian construction sector – a sector which accounts for 14.4% of Bulgarian GDP.

This extension to a School of Design & Environment building at the National University of Singapore is an outstanding example of a net zero-energy building (NZEB) in the tropics. The five-storey building is home to labs, design studios and workshops used by the departments of architecture and design. Construction of the building was optimised to facilitate lateral ventilation and comfortable natural light. An integral aspect of net zero-energy consumption is that conventional approaches to air conditioning have to be challenged.

Two projects called BERTIM and MORE-CONNECT have demonstrated ways of retrofitting prefabricated façade and roof panels that incorporate energy efficiency improvements. This kind of offsite construction means building renovations take less time on the building site, as little as a couple of days.

The European Construction Sector Observatory depicts Romania as being behind the implementation of the 2010/31/EU Directive and the Nearly Zero Energy Bulding (NZEB) concept. Nonetheless, after 31st December 2018, all new buildings occupied and owned by public authorities should be NZEB. This requirement will be applicable to all new buildings as from 2021.

Do you know that Europe is currently failing at making nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs) the standard? Because they are considered too expensive, and there are too many uncertainties in such projects regarding the return on investment. However, creating an nZEB is compulsary for every new building you create from january 2021 onwards. So you too will need to face this challenge.
