Interview with Eng. Marina Bolzan
The aim of the new development is to provide sustainable living solutions with a strong focus on the intensive use of low-energy-consumption technologies that have minimum environmental impact. Every single unit is to be ClimateHouse certified Class A to ensure maximum winter energy savings (based on gross volume heated).
In the section of the Implementation Plan dedicated to system construction requirements, is recommended the installation of radiant-panel-type air conditioning systems. Radiant cooling systems are able to operate at higher temperatures, maximising the efficiency of the refrigeration units and minimising energy consumption. The flat sheet design of the europlus-flex system matches the scheme‘s needs perfectly, ensuring high yields at low operating temperatures.
We are delighted to have contributed to the application of a new urban policy, so-called "quality densification", of which the Casanova development is, to all intents and purposes, the pilot project.
