The Skanska housing company commissioned a study on the energy efficiency of its residential buildings at the Mickiewicza residential in Warsaw. The study showed energy savings of 20-30%. The results reflect Skanska‘s consistent approach to sustainable construction.
Good-energy housing estate
Go4Energy, commissioned by Skanska housing company, conducted energy demand analyses for buildings in stage 3 of the Mickiewicza residential. For the purposes of the study, numerical models of three residential buildings built as part of the project were created. For comparison, models of reference buildings were prepared, which have the parameters required by law in the Technical Conditions. On this basis, primary energy savings for heating, cooling, ventilation, domestic hot water and indoor lighting in real buildings were estimated in comparison with reference buildings.
The results of the analysis showed that the energy-saving solutions applied by the developer reduce the primary energy consumption from 22.7% to 27.9%. Go4Energy also conducted a life cycle assessment study for one of the buildings, focusing on 10, 30 and 60 years of CO2 emissions. This will help control the environmental impact of the investment at every stage from the production of building materials, through the use of the building, to its disposal.
