Abstract

Old buildings that are severe energy wasters and provide low indoor environmental quality (IEQ) form a large fraction of the European building stock. These buildings represent nevertheless, an asset that should be re-evaluated in order to promote local communities development. This paper describes the study that supported the design for the zero energy retrofit of a kindergarten as part of a renovated smart district. The work will substantially reduce the energy needs for heating and cooling while improving IEQ. Prefabricated modules, including mechanical ventilation and solar shading are proposed and particular attention is given to natural, mechanical and hybrid ventilation.
