25 + 26 June, starting at 11: 00: visit to the day of architecture and civil engineering art 2011 Brande hornerkirchen, June 20, 2011 innovative technology supports learning and protects the environment: this combination offers the new elementary school in Horst now its good 220 children. Permanent ventilation creates ideal conditions in ten classrooms and two specialized rooms, because fresh air is supplied. This avoids the rise of dangerous CO2 gas, which can occur even when the shock airing. The recently completed passive house construction promises minimal heating costs thanks to optimally insulated walls and Windows, the compact design and the heat recovery ventilation. This relieves the purse strings of the Association of municipalities of Horst, Peewit series, Hohenfelde, Summerland, old Moor. For us it was important to build economically and at the same time energetically sustainable”, explained Marion Gaudlitz, Chairman of the Association and Mayor of Hohenfelde.
Good value for money as the construction costs with 1,400 Euro gross per m2 usable area relatively low out. Other new municipal buildings achieve that, without however providing the sustainable passive house standard. Moreover, the real construction costs EUR 3.25 million gross remains below the original cost estimate. The architecture and engineering firm of Butzlaff Tewes has developed a two-story, L shaped building with large window surfaces and optimal shading and acoustics. Clean lines and striking colours create a creative and friendly environment. Larger classrooms with room dividers for the two areas of the Group and almost support op de host”the modern teaching concept of the elementary school. There, individual learning is offered since 2006, with which children learn at their own pace. Since summer 2009, one practised vintage cross-learning. While other schools in the rural areas of Schleswig-Holstein with declining student logins have to work, we have remain constant numbers”, Marion Gaudlitz founded the new building. The operation of the school as the building on an open space next to the gym was to disturb little as possible.
