1st prize at the BAU for Hydro

Wicona, Hydro's construction systems brand, was awarded 1st prize in the Building Renovation category at the world's largest construction fair, BAU 2011 in Munich.

TEmotion, the award-winning facade solution from Wicona, can easily reduce the energy requirements of existing buildings by more than 50 percent.

TEmotion is a complete facade module with a range of energy-saving elements such as shading aids, ventilation, lighting, heat pumps and power generation from solar cells.

"Refurbishing existing buildings is crucial in the struggle to reduce energy consumption and emissions," said Hydro's Construction Systems division head Lars Hauk Ringvold, pleased with the award.

Buildings are responsible for around 40 percent of global energy consumption.

In contrast to ordinary building renovation projects, in which users have to move out, the TEmotion concept enables renovation of office space for office space in a conversion time that can last from just a few days to several weeks. This saves time, money and energy.

“TEmotion is a pre-produced & nbsp; Facade solution. That means that the only thing that is necessary on the building side is to make a hole in the wall and replace the previous window with a new, energy-saving facade solution, ”says Werner Jager, Head of Research and Development at Hydro Building Systems.
