The most sustainable teaching building in the Netherlands features Inteco Climate elements
The new and ambitious building for the Energy Academy Europe is the most sustainable teaching building in the Netherlands. It is part of the University of Groningen and is a leading institute where industry, education and science work together on energy-related research and innovation. The building has been given a very special shape, with large solar panels on the roof, in order to realise its extremely sustainable energy principles. The building, which measures almost 15,000 m2, has managed to achieve a BREEAM score of 'Outstanding'. The Inteco team is very proud that its climate ceiling has played a role in creating the most sustainable teaching building in the Netherlands.
The building's roof was one element of the design where the Inteco engineering department could demonstrate its customisation experience and passion. The sloping roof has been put to the best possible use by installing solar panels. When looking upwards, the ceiling appears to consist of a metal construction featuring triangular tips. Half of the tips provide daylight access while the other half provide cooling and/or heating thanks to Inteco's climate ceiling elements. An expanded metal ceiling, where a climate element has been integrated, has been placed between the beams of the metal construction.
