The most remarkable sustainability strategies featured in HoCo, the new book on housing edited by a+t within the Density series to be released next June 25, are:
· Industrial construction system throughout the use of custom integral aluminium formworks: speeds-up execution time and eliminates debris in the construction process. · Rainwater collection and re-use for irrigation. · Green roof allowing for better thermal insulation and prevents the heat island effect. · Use of timber products coming from socially and environmentally responsible forestry. · Use of sound insulation systems besides thermal insulation, in order to protect from outdoor noise as well as to protect from noise originated in other. dwellings. · Use of entirely recycled materials, materials with recycled components, or subsequently recyclable materials. · Heat recovery ventilator: the heat given off in the mechanical ventilation process goes back to the housing units. · The car park is located above grade and not underground: it makes use of daylight and natural ventilation. · Private parking with electric car charging port. · Zip car located in the garage for resident use · Storage space meant specifically for bikes.
