The protagonist of this article is located in Bologna, in the historical center of the city.
The agency Ahrcos Srl located in Bologna is carrying out the energy efficiency project, designed by the BBP Ingegneria Srl studio, located in Bologna. The main interventions of the project will focus on the thermal insulation of the building envelope, the replacement of the winter air conditioning system and the installation of a photovoltaic system.
The 9-storey building, built in the 60s, is characterized by the tall porches, which allow pedestrians to enter the shops on the ground floor, and its clinker facades. Being located in the historical center, the building is subject to an architectural constraint: the façade must remain visually unchanged, and the exposed brickwork must be preserved.
The energy efficiency project for the facades of the building, the creation of a thermal coat, the installation of a photovoltaic system on the roof and the substitution of the winter air conditioning system in the basement room.
Before the installation of the external thermal coat, the previous clinker was removed and sorted. Successively, a layer of plaster with a fiber-reinforced finish with mesh was created. At this point, the 14cm EPS and 60 and 30mm Aeropan coats will be installed.
After the installation of the external thermal coat, all the new resin “bricks” will be placed one by one.
