 HoCo Sustainability

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.
