Vihreä sydän, Virkakatu 8 A-B / Vihreä sydän (Green)
The building has 8 apartments, and was originally built in 1984. The renovation of the building was finished 2013. The retrofit is bringing this building up to and above current new build standards.
Residents will have completely new apartments, and the addition of saunas. Building services have been entirely replaced. High efficiency rotating heat recovery ventilation units will be installed in each apartment.
The renovation project is a part of E2ReBuild, which is a European collaborative project, researching and demonstrating industrialised energy efficient retrofitting of residential buildings in cold climates. Our partners in this project was NCC and Aalto University. More information about E2Rebuild: www.e2rebuild.eu.
