Type of construction: renovation
Owner: Housing association
Location: The Netherlands, Kerkrade
Parkstad is one of the regions in the Netherlands confronted with a decreasing number of inhabitants and aging of these inhabitants. The ambition for 2022 is to deep renovate 30,000 dwellings, realize 10,000-15,000 all-electric building objects and to subtract 10,000 dwellings and 120,000 m2 from the market and maximize re-using and recycling of these available materials.
In Kerkrade, we will deliver a life cycle zero energy circular retrofit of an existing terraced dwelling typology common in the Netherlands. This will be based on the concept of urban mining with maximum locally re-used and recycled materials and locally based bio-based materials.
This demonstration project includes a typical Dutch terraced housing owned by a social housing association. The circular deep-renovation focusses on refurbishing the envelope with prefabricated modules and installing a building services ‘engine’. Composing the modules of the building envelope follows a three-step strategy;
The development of the case will be strongly based on the knowledge developed in the H2020 projects BAMB and MORE-CONNECT, the UIA Super Circular Estate project (Superlocal) and the EOS DEMO project Kerkrade-West. The circularity of the demonstrator will be indicated by the embodied energy, embodied CO2, and shadow costs.
For the Netherlands, we expect the following impact:
