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 Alingsas

The Swedish demo site of the BEEM-UP project is located in Alingsås and known as Brogarden. The area consists of multi-dwelling buildings built in the period 1971 to 1973, comprising a total of 300 apartments, divided into 16 houses with 2 to 4 floors each. All apartments have a balcony or patio.

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.

E2REBUILD Site Voiron

The Voiron demonstration site of E2REBUILD project is a multi-storey building in the department of Isère. The building was made of concrete with no insulation, it had natural ventilation and the windows were first-generation PVC double-glazing 4-6-4. All dwellings had an individual gas boiler for domestic hot water production, but each dwelling had its own different heat production – either electric heaters (ca. 29 dwellings with an energy demand of 529 kWh/m² year) or fossil fuel boilers (c. 43 dwellings with an energy demand of 202 kWh/m² year).

E2REBUILD Site Roosendaal

The E2REBUILD demonstration in Roosendaal, the Netherlands, consists of 112 identical, single family terrace houses built in 1960 in the area of Kroeven. The whole area underwent a transformation, which included renovation of existing houses and new construction. The retrofit of 50 of the houses was part of the E2REBUILD project and was completed at the beginning of 2011.

The renovation in the Roosendaal pilot buildings took place with the tenants remaining in their homes throughout the entire renovation work, which required consideration from both sides and continuous dialogue.

E2REBUILD Site Munich

The E2REBUILD demonstration in Munich, Germany consisted of two blocks of residential multi-storey buildings in the suburb of Sendling, built in 1954. The buildings, owned by the public housing company GWG München, represented uniform standard blocks built in the post-war decade of the 1950s to fulfil urgent housing needs, with three storeys and accessed by inner staircases. The resources were quite poor concerning material, construction and design, resulting in a lack of variability, technical facilities, daylight and comfort inside the buildings.

E2REBUILD Site Halmstad

The E2REBUILD demonstration in Halmstad, Sweden is a multi-storey building from 1963 with the typical features of that period, such as a reinforced concrete load-bearing frame and facade elements. The building contains 91 apartments. The retrofit included a complete exchange of main pipes (water and sewage) as well as new kitchens and bathrooms, energy-efficient measures such as new, highly insulated windows, improved adjustments of control systems, new high performance extraction air, new outdoor air heat pumps and increased airtightness.

E2REBUILD Site Augsburg

The E2REBUILD demonstration site in Augsburg (southern Germany) consists of two multi-storey residential buildings with typical post-war characteristics from 1966. The buildings are a three-storey block with 12 apartments and a six-storey block with 48 apartments. They have been fully retrofitted including building services and bathrooms, with residents remaining in their apartments during the construction work.

SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE Site Drammen

The Norwegian demo site of the SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE is known as Brandengen Primary School. It is situated in a housing area in the outskirts of Drammen, 40 km southwest from the capital city of Norway. The school’s facilities consist of three brick buildings linked together with arcades – the main building, the activity building for gym, arts and crafts, and a small building for leisure time. The buildings, designed by the famous Norwegian architect Arnstein Arneberg, are of historical value.
