The architectural, landscaping and environmental aspects of the SIGIDURS Energy Recovery Centre renovation project revolve around three key ideas:
1. To homogenize the different buildings and volumes of the Centre in order to show a single architectural unit: create a grey base.
2. To highlight the process area which represents the heart of the plant and the SIGIDURS approach; create a a coloured perforated metal envelope reminding the old brick used in the city.
3. Intensively plant the plot and plant with the ambition to create a sustainable green design perfectly integrated into its surroundings.
HQE® targets :
Target 1 : harmonious relation between building and its environment
• Highlight the process area with green roof, walls and land. Enhance the relation with the surroundings.
• Views on natural areas: green roofs and walls.
• Us of eco-materials with a low impact on the environment. Harmonious integration of the plant into the near and far landscape.
Target 2: choice of integrated products and building materials
• Steel structure, a long-lasting, easy-to-maintain material that can be adapted as required.
• Exterior insolation with wood fibre panels
• Recyclable aluminium cladding.
Target 4: energy management
• Thanks to insulation, the operating building has a good inertia and reduces its energy consumption.
• Natural lightning and ventilation of the process area thanks to the facade openings.
Target 5: water management
• The green roof and walls manage the rain water.
• The alveolate slabs manage the heavy road runoff water.
• The water overflow is collected gravitionally towards planted ditches.
Target 8 and 9: Optimized hygrometric comfort and acoustic comfort
• The wood fibre insulation brings hygrometric and acoustic comfort into the building
• An acoustic wall made of gabion guarantees acoustic comfort around the site.
Target 10 : Optimized visual comfort
• Green wall on the west facade: reduces air pollution, installation of a water network, plantations adapted to the weather conditions.
• The plant is designed as a green park giving a satisfactory view to the inhabitants.
