It is a very peculiar building, very different from Italian average industries, both for its architectural design and the energy efficiency of the construction. Such a working environment offers a very high comfort level. In the building are the following systems:
Air-water heating pump
On the east front of the buinding a 70kW heating pump is installed. The device provides heating and cooling to the offices and the warehouse and produces sanitary hot water.
Roof thermal insulation
2000sm of 15 cm thick Rockwool mat have been posed on the building roof, to reduce heating dissipation.
Wall thermal insulation
700sm of 10 cm thick polystyrene sheets have been posed on the building external wall, to reduce heating dissipation.
The roof of the offices and the warehouse are covered with 1540 sm of photovoltaic panels that supply 220kWp of electric power, this PV system allows E P SY to autonomously satisfy its demand for electricity.
Low consumption LED lights
In the offices and the warehouse are over 200 LED lights controlled by timers and sensors. Only in presence of people lights are turned on and they are adjusted according to natural light coming from the outside. When nobody is in the rooms timers turn off the lights.
