AZEB Spanish case study in Santurtzi keeps moving forward

Members from TECNALIA and VISESA, AZEB project’s partners in Spain, have visited the construction site of “Santurtzi B-87” building. VISESA as the promoter of this social housing apartment block has offered this building as a case study for the on-going AZEB project.

Technicians from TECNALIA and VISESA in November 2018 had a technical meeting in Santurtzi in the case study building with the facultative direction, the architectural firm, equipment installers and construction workers in order to keep updated in the works that are currently going on in this apartment block, especially those regarding Domestic Hot Water, Heating and Ventilation installations.

Thanks to this meeting, some important issues have been discussed and agreed and, as a result of this, the boiler room is now prepared to be monitored in the future with the aim of getting real time data of its functioning regime and find out revealing performance indicators for the next steps of the AZEB project.

With the lessons learned in these last weeks working together with the construction site team, TECNALIA and VISESA intend to pave the way to incorporate the results in the forthcoming open tender for construction works of the next two buildings of this social housing promotion. In this public procurement process VISESA will include important issues related with the “affordability of nZEBs”, wich is the main aim of the AZEB project, like Commissioning, Measurement & Verification and Performance Guarantee Protocols.
