HEART will be installed in two different case study buildings, which were selected to be highly representative of the target application. The buildings are large multifamily buildings, one French and the other Italian.
This Work Package will carry out a detailed energy audit on the building before the retrofit interventions, to define the baseline energy performance and current users’ behaviour. This involves in-depth analysis of the features of the building envelope and of the existing technical systems.
The performance of the retrofitted building after the installation of HEART will be monitored to validate the results of the project. This Work Package will identify any discrepancies between the virtual simulation of the system its application.
Finally, specific questionnaires and interviews will be set up focusing on buildings users’ acceptance and satisfaction, starting from the beginning of the retrofit intervention until the end of the project.
