RenovActiVITA – 1st RenovActive project in Italy

Renovation is the main strategy in Italy’s building action plan. In times of rare building materials and increasing costs, it’s not always easy to guarantee the quality of the work. The family of Mirko Berizzi took the difficult situation as a challenge to prove that it’s possible, going for the first RenovActive project in Italy, called RenovActiVITA at Brembate di sotto (North of Italy):

The family is very proud of the new result, where the improvements in well-being are the most outstanding element: much more light, comfortable rooms under the roof, before nearly inhabitable and greatly reduced energy consumption. Highly improved noise reduction and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery guarantee perfect air quality at each moment.

The builder Mr. Vanoncini realized with his staff the work accepting the challenge of the overall goal: transform the old uncomfortable and highly energy-consuming apartment into a modern living place with highly improved quality and health.

To reach this goal they were assisted by the staff of Prof. Marco Imperadori from the Tecnical University of Milan. Active House was the ideal protocol to follow to focus on the different quality elements like light, thermal comfort, indoor air quality, noise, energy consumption and sustainability.
