Ensuring cost-efficient refurbishment of buildings leading to substantial energy savings

Every year, much of the energy consumed locally, nationally and regionally is wasted through transmission, heat loss and inefficient technology - costing households, businesses and state money, and leading to increased carbon pollution.

Energy efficiency is one of the easiest and most cost-efficient ways to combat climate change, clean the air we breathe, improve the competitiveness of our businesses and reduce energy costs for consumers. New Technology Center is actively working on providing efficient solutions for buildings and other consumers of energy.

Proximity of project area to the Black Sea Coast dictated terms to be acknowledged in the building: high levels of moisture and salt content in the air posed a risk not only to a quality of living inside the buildings but increased requirements for protection of facade. To address this situation highly insulated building envelope of sandwich panels was employed. To secure exterior vacuum-pressure treated timber cladding was additionally protected by natural oil finish. Buildings are equipped with solar collectors for hot water and PV panels for electricity production.

Residential House in Tbilisi

Architectural project of the residential house involved filling concrete openings with masonry and cladding it with wood. After inquiring Wood Service for the supply of wood cladding the developer of the project was offered an obvious improvement that implied replacing 40 cm masonry with wood cladding to an insulated wall panel of 20 cm thickness. Such a solution enabled developer to gain additional spaces for sale providing income that fully covered costs of producing and installing the panels while keeping the original exterior concept.
