NTNU, c/o the Faculty for Engineering and Technology (IVT) and the Faculty for Architecture and Visual Art (AB), intends, together with SINTEF, to construct and operate a ZEB Flexible Lab at Gløshaugen in Trondheim. The project owner is IVT.
The building shall be constructed as a part of the buildings at Høgskoleringen 7.
Through the research centre Zero Emission Buildings (ZEB), NTNU and SINTEF have significantly extended their facilities in recent years for research on zero emission buildings and climate stresses. We have built the ‘ZEB Living Lab’ at Perleporten, which is a residential building, where the research focus is on the residents and their use of innovative building technologies, such as intelligent control of installations and equipment, interactive user interface and interaction with the general energy system. We have also built ‘ZEB Test Call Laboratory’ at Høgskoleringen 7, where we can test low energy integrated building systems under realistic operational conditions. In addition we have upgraded central laboratory equipment for climate stresses and measuring heat insulation abilities at a building component level.
See Annex B1 Contract Terms (the tender documentation) and Annex C1 General Description for a more detailed description.
