CHARACTERISTICS HIGH ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

THE 14 HIGH-QUALITY ENVIRONMENTAL TARGETS

Target 1 – Integration of the building in its immediate environment.

NOT RELEVANT

Target 2 – Integrated Choice of Construction Products, Systems and Processes.

VEGETAL BUILDING material has little impact on the environment during its life cycle. In particular, the high wood content, the little energy used in production, optimized transport thanks to the light weight of the material VEGETAL BUILDING, the long-term storage of carbon, gives it a very interesting carbon footprint.

Target 3 – Construction site with low environmental impact.

Application of VEGETAL BUILDING material on site: “dry site”, no additional insulation to be laid, VEGETAL BUILDING blocks light and easy to install, no waste generated as recycling.

Target 4 – Energy Management.

The material VEGETAL BUILDING has a very good insulating power. The constructive process removes thermal bridges …

Target 5 – Water Management.

NOT RELEVANT

Target 6 – Waste Management Activity.

NOT RELEVANT

 

 

Target 7 – Maintenance, sustainability of environmental performance.

The material VEGETAL BUILDING is durable in time and has excellent mechanical resistance, torsion, and is stable with water and fire (classification B, S1, D0 en Europe). In terms of interior design and decoration, it allows for example to exonerate pegs to fix frames, furniture, etc. …

Target 8 – Hygrothermal comfort.

Winter comfort: very good insulating power of VEGETAL BUILDING material; no cold wall.

Summer comfort: good inertia of the material VEGETAL BUILDING delaying the entry of the heat of the work.

Regulates the hydrometry of the air avoiding too dry air that can generate respiratory genes.

Target 9 – Acoustic comfort.

Good acoustic impairment, distinguishing between exterior and interior noise (impact noise).

Target 10 – Visual comfort.

The material VEGETAL BUILDING allows the installation of large bays favoring the penetration of natural light.

Target 11 – Olfactory comfort.

NO RELEVANT

Target 12 – Sanitary quality of spaces.

NO RELEVANT

Target13 – Sanitary quality of the air.

The VEGETAL BUILDING material does not contain any product that may be released into the ambient air during the life of the building. In addition, there is no additional mineral insulation. VEGETAL BUILDING material is permeable to water vapor.

Target 14 – Sanitary quality of water.
