Sustainable construction at a reasonable price
In 2010, LOW3 won the Solar Decathlon Europe, the world’s most respected university competition for efficient and sustainable construction. Developed and built by 100 students of the Faculty of Architecture at Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, LOW3 is a net zero-energy building that anybody can afford. LOW3 stands for low energy requirements, low impact on the environment and inexpensive architecture. Renewable raw materials and recyclable materials were exclusively used during construction. After the competition, the building was rebuilt on the UPC campus as a “living laboratory”.
The students opted to use our radiant heating and cooling ceiling elements to control the temperature of the building in an energy-efficient manner. They also opted to install our RAUTITAN drinking water system.
Good reasons to opt for REHAU
