Nature Centre receives energy efficiency award

24.03.2014 / The Hindsgavl Nature Centre was among the winners at the Energy Efficiency Best of Awards 2013 ceremony in Dublin. The award is made biannually by Saint-Gobain ISOVER and honours buildings that lead the way for the future of energy-efficient construction.
 
The Hindsgavl Nature Centre, which is located in the scenic landscape of Hindsgavl Deer Park, Denmark, received the award for the way in which it has implemented several energy-efficient solutions. These mean that the nature centre is one of the first such centres in Denmark to meet the energy requirements for the passive house standard (15 kWh/m2).
 
The energy demand has been significantly reduced by ensuring a high insulation capacity and shaping the nature centre in relation to local climate conditions. In addition, the building-integrated solar protection not only provides shadow and prevents overheating in the hot summer months, but also adds a distinctive architectural profile to the centre.
