Sustainable Architecture Applied to Replicable Public-Access Buildings


SARA aims to construct sustainable, cost effective, high-energy performance, public-access eco-buildings that are immediately replicable at large scale in many locations. The eco-buildings will be equipped with advanced sustainable energy technologies integrated by an innovative architectural approach and combined monitoring and building management systems, BMS.

Given that public-access buildings tend to have relatively intense energy consumption the overall impact in terms of absolute energy savings and pollution reduction will be particularly significant. SARA involves the demonstration of 8 highly sustainable and replicable Public-access buildings in 5 EC Member States (A, E, F, I, UK), 2 EC Candidate countries (PL, SI) and 1 New Independent State (UZ). There are 16 participants in the project: the promoters and research organisations of the countries involved in the 8 countries of demonstration plus research and technical development (RTD) from Germany.
