Large-scale sustainable renovation of ‘De Passie’ school building
‘De Passie’, a school building with a total floor area of 6,500 m², is to undergo an all-over renovation and enlargement. It will be renovated and enlarged in stages while remaining in use. The extensive modifications will improve the building’s sustainability rating to a level exceeding the current statutory criteria for newbuilds by 30%. This sustainability gain will be achieved through a significant improvement of the building shell and by disconnecting it from mains gas and creating an all-electric building with an air source heat pump. As the project’s overall consultant, Iv-Bouw will provide the detailed designs for both the building services systems and the main load-bearing structure, with Iv‑Consult providing structural engineering support. Furthermore Iv-Bouw will be the risk-bearing party for the building services engineering of this project.
