BUILDSMART Site Bilbao

The demonstration building is a three-block residential building located in the Portugalete municipality in Greater Bilbao and is developed by the Basque Government’s Department of Housing, Public Works and Transport. The implemented technologies had to be energy-efficient in order to achieve the target value but at the same time low-cost, because the developer couldn’t afford expensive technology. The social scope of the project is also important as it is oriented towards social housing.

BEEM-UP Site Delft

The BEEM-UP building site in the Netherlands is located in the north-west of Delft, approximately 2.5 km from the city centre. The group of buildings is called Complex 5 and consists of 108 dwellings distributed over 3 types in 8 blocks constructed in 1958. The area has a specific identity as the surrounding buildings share the typical Dutch brick facade, a remarkable architectural quality.

BEEM-UP Site Paris

The French demonstration site of the BEEM-UP project is located in the centre of Paris. The demonstration building is surrounded by buildings of similar height and is composed of 87 dwellings built around 1950. In 1993, the building was renovated (outer insulation, double-glazed windows, boilers), but it needed a major upgrade to become a pilot and an example for bringing the rest of the housing park to the low energy standard for renovated buildings, with a consumption target of less than 104 kWh/m²/yr for HVAC, hot water and lighting.
