Έργα σχετικά με κτίρια nZEB


School buildings are places of major public interest. Therefore not only the educational system itself, but also the conditions of these buildings are very important signals to the public, even to the pupils themselves.

The RENEW SCHOOL project will promote and increase prefabricated timber-based renovation of school buildings to nearly zero energy building (nZEB) standard in Europe. It will help to downsize the energy use significantly, and create and secure comfortable conditions for the pupils and teachers.Sustainable school renovation actions are built on following three focus points promoted by this project:

  • Improvement of the building’s envelope by coating it with insulated prefabricated timber modules integrating windows, solar shading and ventilation/heating pipework
  • Improvement of the indoor environment quality (IEQ) by ventilating, passive cooling and daylight upgrading the classrooms
  • Improvement of the energy gains on site by using renewable energy sources, beside passive measures

These focus points will be transferred to a wide European market by 13 consortium members following the needs of school owners and financiers.

The RENEW SCHOOL project specifically will:

  • Increase the number of nZEB school buildings
  • Assist the target groups with tools and concepts
  • Force the know-how exchange of multipliable renovation methods
  • Initiate trainings for SME
  • Convince the users by awareness projects


  • Dechairs Deckchairs
