Completed thermal performance improvement and energy performance increase
Energy-efficiency, improved work comfort and environmental protection are the effects of thermal performance improvements of the PIAP buildings. The improvements have been completed after three years with all goals reached.
The thermal performance of four buildings of the Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements including the industrial robot floor, mobile robot floor and main corridor leading to most of the PIAP buildings have been improved. The works also involved insulation and thermal performance improvement of the building foundations. The works have also been carried out outside the buildings on the walls and roofs. Energy efficient windows and sealed exterior door were installed. The buildings were fitted with an advanced lightning protection system and a central heating system. New building facade was added.
- improved PIAP team work conditions and comfort,
- improved energy efficiency due to reduced heat loss,
- reduced heating costs,
- improved building appearance with a new facade,
- reduced environmental impact due to reduced greenhouse gas emission.
European Union subsidies
The improvements of the Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements PIAP cost 4.704 million PLN. The costs were partially covered by the PIAP and partially co-financed by the European Union as part of the Cohesion Fund – contract no. POIiŚ.01.03.01-00-0040/16 with the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management. The EU subsidy was 3.358 million PLN. The project took three years to complete and all goals have been achieved.
