Control your building temperature with a geothermal solution with a small ground footprint

This was the #1 goal for this installation for a new-generation school building!

The Var departmental council in south-east France embarked on the construction of a new-generation school building in 2017. A building meeting the highest energy performance standards, awarded the Gold-level Sustainable Mediterranean Building label and BBC Effinergie certification.

Promising results for this kind of project.

With the architectural expression making much use of wood, clay and other raw materials (steel and glass), photovoltaic energy production, a wood-fired boiler, a sun-breaker on the façade, green roofs, water recovery and reuse, geocooling i.e. geothermal technology used for cooling…. a whole array of bioclimatic solutions were called on.

Some initial measurements were taken and temperatures were found to remain below 26°C.

The aim of this project was to find a high-performance geothermal solution taking up as little space as possible, with a small ground footprint.

An undeniable advantage of the geothermal basket solution selected for this operation.

You can catch up on our webinar, produced in partnership with the AFGP, entitled “Understanding geothermal technology in 30 minutes” (in French).
