[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]La Grange residency[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The La Grange co-ownership, located in Panissières (Loire), consists in two buildings dating back to 1971, with 42 accommodations. Its construction date, before the first thermal rules of 1974, explains a lot of thermal flaws. The fact that the co-owners themselves changed the woodwork from single to double glazing shows that the residents yearn for more comfort, and that one-off intervention is not efficient.
In January 2016, the co-owners syndic ordered a global technical diagnosis (DTG) and an energy audit. This was before the implementation of the Alur law. This expresses a strong will to resort to a complete diagnosis of the buildings without waiting for the law to impose it, which shows how important our report was for the co-owners.
We have meticulously studied the archived plans, which included several modifications. We assessed the state of the site twice. Our energy audit collaborator (AD Environnement) lead a poll about the residents’ energetic consumption and comfort.
The flaws are numerous: lack of thermal isolation, there are still some single-glazing windows left, the balcony aspects are very deteriorated, lack of smoke extraction, condensation inside the accommodations, possible presence of asbestos…
The final report presented by AD Environnement at the 2016 co-owners general assembly allowed to put the elected works in the maintenance book. The planned works will considerably improve the thermal comfort of the accommodations, as well as the exterior aspects of the buildings, which will thus increase the patrimonial value of the residency.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
