The 3rd European Study Tour of AIDA Project in Spain will take place on October 25th at the Schwartz-Hautmont Offices building, located at the Vila-Seca Industrial park in Tarragona, Spain.
The guides on this study tour will be the architects Coque Claret and Dani Calatayud who were responsible of the design and construction works of the building. Amongst other things, they will explain the energetic and constructive futures and show the way that the building was designed, built and commissioned.

The Integrated Energy Design (IED) concept is vital for a successful implementation of nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEB) involving different professions on achieving energy performance requirements since the very beginning of the design process of a building. The IED approach is used as a starting point to promote nZEBs within Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) and within other municipal energy roadmaps such as Climate Alliance and e5-communities in Austria. Such SEAP development has been initiated within the frame of AIDA, a project co-funded by the European Commission.

Highlighting the ability of conscientious architects and design teams to meet the challenges set by building owners, the AIDA compilation of Success Stories illustrates, through a dozen examples, real solutions to take building practice to nZEB standards, and provides recommendations on key success factors through People, Planning, Targets and Tests. The AIDA project, co-funded by the European Commission, supports building professionals and local authorities all over Europe in designing nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEB).

The objective of this document is to identify the main ingredients that are necessary for constructing or refurbishing exemplary buildings in terms of energy consumption known as “nearly Zero-Energy Buildings” (nZEB) by analysing the similarities observed in a range of success stories from the different partner countries involved in the AIDA - Affirmative Integrated Energy Design Action project (Austria, France, Greece, Italy, Hungary, Spain and UK/Scotland).
