Published by the Federation of the Cement Industry (FIB), with the support of the Center for Training and Research in the Cement Industry (Cerib), the Smart Guide for RE2020 – Building houses with Smart Systems in Concrete – released recently.
The purpose of this guide is to guide construction stakeholders to better understand the three objectives of RE2020 and to show that using precast concrete solutions makes it possible to fully meet the environmental and comfort requirements of the new regulations and promote energy sustainability in buildings. Aimed at all players in the construction industry and with a priority for CMists, developers and thermal and environmental design offices, this 24-page guide, informative, entertaining and supported by concrete cases, is divided into two main chapters.
Understanding the objectives of RE2020: its three objectives (energy stability, cooling of buildings when the temperature is high and reduction of the carbon impact) and the timetable for its use, changes between RT2012 and RE2020, calculation of the carbon impact at the building level. and the LCA approach, following building carbon standards that require all lots to contribute to reducing the carbon footprint of buildings.
Use Smart Concrete Systems to adopt RE2020: ready-made concrete solutions for housing to meet the three objectives of RE2020, and therefore, to build low carbon, further reduce the carbon impact of real building systems and promote the associated summer comfort and the weather. buildings.
Through Smart Concrete Systems, FIB has initiated a program to strengthen the intelligence embedded in each of the concrete ready-made solutions, in terms of saving areas, resources, energy and performance, which are firmly documented in a responsible and integrated way of production. The publication of this guide is part of the system and joint communication established by the Federation to promote the contribution of ready-made concrete solutions to reduce the environmental footprint, especially walls and floors intended for the market of private houses and collective housing. It is supplemented by a range of other tools: case studies, decision-making tools, webpages with testimonials from design offices to quantify RE2020 deployment criteria, a video testimonial webinar to have messages with design offices designers, builders, and so on.
