Experiences from Hamnhuset

Measurements of the energy consumption and thermal comfort

The number of building projects that have a lower energy consumption than what the current building legislation demands are increasing. Many of these projects have been terraced-houses or smaller multifamily dwellings. Hamnhuset in Gothenburg is today the largest house that have been built in Sweden with so called passive house technology. Hamnhuset has as a demonstration project gotten much attention both nationally and internationally. The demand of knowledge and experiences from today constructed low energy and passive houses is large since the market for houses like this increases. In this context is Hamnhuset very interesting with its size. The project aims at return knowledge and experiences from Hamnhuset considering energy consumption, thermal comfort and user behaviour. The goal of the project is to contribute with increased knowledge of passive houses in a larger circle and contribute with good advices to coming projects. The target group are building and installation entrepreneurs as well as constructors and house manager. The project will be performed with measurements both for the entire building but also in individual apartments. The results from the project will be summarized in a report and a more easily read summary with guidelines will also be created.
