The aim of Priedemann’s thermal-structural planning is to minimise heat losses and undesirable heat input through the exterior of the building and to avoid damage caused by weather conditions. The range of services includes identifying all influences and values relevant for the facade structure as well as the exact dimensioning and determination of the materials for the layer structure of the facade.
- Thermal insulation: On the basis of local and specific project requirements and after evaluation of the technical building plan, we determine the necessary values for thermal insulation in the summer and winter.
- Energy standards: We take into account which energy standards and objectives must be met – such as KfW requirements, low and passive house standards or requirements of green building labels such as LEED, BREAM or DGNB.
- Materiality: We calculate the necessary U-values and resulting insulation thicknesses, make specific material suggestions, give advice on the correct wall structure and determine the g-values taking into account the measures selected to provide protection from the sun.
