GreenIZOLA is a vision of a gradual green conversion of the premises of the construction company IZOLA Košice, s.r.o., established in cooperation with the Technical University in Košice (Slovakia). This vision represents a set of complex measures, the result of which is a logically, economically and environmentally justified proposal for the green conversion of the chosen building.
The project is divided into separate stages, in which the individual parts of the complex and the building are gradually transformed into structures with the potential for retaining rainwater as well as study energy and environment effect of the green structures with synergy of progressive HVAC systems and RES application in the experimental building.
The proposed architectural structures create the potential for the creation of experimental structures designed for multidisciplinary research of synergistic links between the buildings, different energy sources (heat pumps, solar systems) and progressive HVAC systems. Testing of building structures with a vegetation layer is the research ambition of many university workplaces and development centres in the world.
The main aim is to choose the proper type of vegetation suitable for the given conditions, the influence of the vegetation roof on the building and its systems from the point of view the environment, overheating of the buildings, and elimination of the so-called heat islands and creation of proper indoor environment.
W4RES partner, Hochschule Fur Technik Stuttgart, provides the following support measures: cooperation on simulation methods and models, mutual exchange of experience and data, organisation of 7 prospective meetings to the potential consortium within the Horizon event.
