Design for Reduction of CO2 Emission and Energy Efficiency Enhancement of Tallinn University of Applied Sciences Dormitories Completed


Amhold completed the design for reduction of CO2 emission and energy efficiency enhancement of Tallinn University of Applied Sciences dormitories. The leading architect is Jane Pärnamaa, the Project Manager is Reelika Mitrovski, Master of Science in Engineering and Structural Engineer is Katrin Viirlik, Master of Science in Engineering.

The gross area of the dormitories is 12,756 m2 and the plot area is 11,246 m2.

With the aim of the reduction of CO2 emission, the heating and air conditioning systems of the dormitories are designed completely new taking into account contemporary technical capabilities using solar energy, heat energy from waste water and air, and control automation. Specific solutions of window glass and structures make a significant contribution to improvement of energy efficiency.

Materials with high thermal insulation capacity are used for peripheral structures and as a result the building will achieve low-power building characteristics (up to 100 kwh/m2 per year)

Amhold performed pre-design engineering-technical and environmental surveys, also architectural, structural, and electrical engineering, including HVAC, water supply and sewerage system, control engineering solutions as well as leading design/management services.
