Share this Post:

The ReCO2ST demonstrator building in Vevey is a 1932 apartment building that has been renovated with the ReCO2St approach, fully respecting its architectural identity while also enriching it inside and out to accommodate the selected renovation solutions.

 

The ReCO2ST approach, is structured to assist the decision making process, but also flexible to allow the permissible interventions leading in a cost-optimal, nZEB, healthy renovation that respects the local environmental, social and cultural contact of the buildings and their surroundings.

 

The core interventions in the 5-floor, 15-apartment building of Vevey targeted the improvement of the thermal envelope and HVAC installations.

 

The ReCO2ST innovative technologies that were installed on the demonstrator building are:

 

  • Nature Based System Aeroplant for nature based indoor air treatment.
  • Smart Window for preheating of ventilation air
  • Concentrated Photovoltaics to increase solar energy yield.

After one year of monitoring, the first performance results are available and presented in the attached press release!
