Environmental and Energy concept and design


The Montmorency building in Montpellier houses the services of the Prefecture of Languedoc Roussillon Region. This building is located in the heart of the city and represents a marked architecture. The objective of the project is to carry out a rehabilitation in occupied site, allowing to divide by 4 the consumptions of energy, while improving the comfort and the quality of life, and in particular the comfort of summer. GreenBuilding developped the technical studies in order to meet the environmental and energy targets of the project, through dynamic thermal simulations and carbon footprint assessments.
