Consortium of Mostostal Warszawa and Acciona Construcción has built an energetic unique in Poznań
With the beginning of the new academic year, the Poznań University of Technology gained a new building - the Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Management Engineering. This facility, unique in terms of energy demand, was realized by a consortium of Mostostal Warszawa and Acciona Construcción.
Faculty of Architecture and Faculty of Engineering Management of the Poznan University of Technology is nearly zero-energy building. The Energy drawns from the ground with heat pumps and from the sun through photovoltaic cells. This satisfies 80% of the energy demand required to heat the building in winter and cool it down in the summer. Further, this results also in the better performance of the building than the European Union requires. Starting from 2021 under the EU Directive only buildings with very low energy and power demand are to be erected in the European Union.
- Innovation is one of the key values of Mostostal Warszawa. Built for the Poznań University of Technology, the facility is one of the most energy-efficient in Europe. Thus, we confirm that we want to actively participate in the energy transformation and contribute to the development of a low-carbon economy. When implementing the project for the Poznań University of Technology, we showed the human resources and organizational potential necessary for modern construction - says Jorge Calabuig Ferre, Vice President of the Management Board of Mostostal Warszawa.
The new building of the Poznań University of Technology is economical in form. It is distinguished by a characteristic simple body. Three aboveground storeys of the building were built, twelve meters high. As intended by the architect Sławomir Rosolski, the project refers to the proportions of the Parthenon on the Acropolis. One of the characteristic elements is the atrium, which acts as an internal courtyard. On the same level there are also dean's offices and faculty administrations. The underground storey is intended for laboratories, a lecture-exhibition hall and a car park.
