Observing the progress of the construction of new houses in Andisheh
A delegation from Energy Efficiency and Environment in Building project (EEEB) along with representatives from Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology and Road, Housing and Urban Development Research Center (BHRC) have paid a visit visited to the project site in October 1400 in order to monitor the construction activities and progress of the low energy units in Andisheh.
This project, which is currently under construction with the participation of the Housing Investment Company, includes 175 residential units with EC + energy category, in which the standards of energy consumption in the building and the provisions of Article 19 of the National Building Regulations have been observed.
The information and drawings of these units have been uploaded on the national Energy Monitoring Information System (EMIS) located in BHRC building to determine the energy classification for them and under the supervision of this center, the results of design and implementation of these houses and their information will be re-loaded on the system at the time of initiation to be evaluated and monitored in terms of energy consumption.
Mr. Adel Mohaghegh, EEEB project expert, says: “This project is unique in this respect because it was able to identify some knowledge-based companies, which in recent years have been facing many difficulties to enter the market of low-energy housing construction, and use their capacities in various area of material supply.”
The use of new technologies, proper insulation based on various building elements, super panel walls and the use of low-emissivity glass in exterior facades are some of the measures taken to boost energy consumption in this project.
According to Mr. Firoozfar, the head of Banafsheh project workshop, the progress of the project currently stands at more than 83% and is expected to reach more than 97% by the end of November 2021.
