Total construction time: Easter and Whitsun school holidays 2011

The comprehensive modernisation of the state-funded primary school includes measures aimed at boosting energy efficiency, optimising the air conditioning and improving the fire prevention systems.

Challenges

The facelift had to be completed during two school holidays. So the company had just a few weeks to replace the facade.

Innovation

Know-how related to the special benefits of using a TES facade: large share of pre-fabricated parts, high level of manufacturing precision and, as a result, optimised construction processes thanks to concise advance planning; all of this was to be utilised in this project.

Solution

Wood frame construction panels with fibre-reinforced cement panels were used to replace the former steel and glass facade, thus improving the energy performance of the entire building.

Result

A school building that provides a comfortable teaching and learning environment for both students and teachers. Gone are the days of overheated classrooms in the summer; the loss of heat in the winter has been significantly reduced thanks to the more energy-efficient facade. Modern and innovative climate protection at work.

Transfer

The key advantage of using wood structures is that they are less costly while offering the same physical properties. Savings of almost 20 percent can be achieved thanks to the simpler construction and the reduced amount of preparatory work that has to be undertaken on the existing building structure.
