The intervention concerns a social housing construction with a total of 24 accommodation units.
The intervention concerns a social housing construction with a total of 24 accommodation units. The buildings are located in the town of Tarquinia, province of Viterbo, via Berlinguer 6. It consists of two buildings of four floors.
The load-bearing structure is in reinforced concrete, lateral-concrete floors, outer casing with empty case with outer curtain and internal plastering. The cover is of the double flap type with gras in cls to face view.
The basic criterion for the project was to identify interventions aimed at improving the thermal insulation properties of the building envelope and the production of energy from renewable sources; as well as using materials that respect the principles of eco-sustainability and bio-building.
Insulating panels on high-thickness roofing and biocompatibility features were installed on the housing.
The thermal insulation is made of a 13 mm thick multilayer, consisting of a red, mineralized, and Portland cement-bound spatula conforming to UNI EN 13168, cm 5, coupled to a fiberboard panel wood conforming to the norm UNI EN 13171, cm 8 cm, certified with ANAB - ICEA (ecobiocompatibility) certified wool, 100% renewable.
In addition, a four-layer watertight sheath is installed, which is still under the concrete slab underneath a rough layer with two butyl strips that ensure sealing without further mechanical fixing and without the use of the flame. The tiles are anchored directly to the sheath by cement.

Resources needed

The investment of this project was: € 340.000,00

Evidence of success

- promotion of energy efficiency (energy saving, optimization of energy use, rationalization and control of end uses, self-consumption);
- Promotion of the production of renewable energies;
- adoption of technologies to reduce fuel consumption.

Potential for learning or transfer

The project is replicable in other buildings throughout the region. Both in private and in public buildings like this one.
Organizations involved learned the financial and reporting methodology required by European programming, making it easier to implement future projects.
