Constructing Vitality Saving Retrofit in Liu Lian Major College / FORWARD STUDIO
Textual content description supplied by the architects. Pingdi Liulian Major College is a college scene within the “5 Ones” Vitality Saving and Carbon Discount Mannequin Program in Longgang District. Ahead design, in collaboration with Jianxue Design and CSCEC, mixed energy-saving, carbon-reducing, and zero-carbon applied sciences to finish the renovation of the nation’s first elementary college in a PEDF challenge, and Shenzhen’s first near-zero-energy elementary college campus using the renovation of an current constructing.
Constructing a secure, handy, comfy, and pure campus. After dozens of years on campus, the present educating idea of campus can now not meet the present necessities of educating actions. In recent times, Shenzhen has been dedicated to exploring the “near-zero carbon” building path with Shenzhen traits, selling city inexperienced and low-carbon growth, serving to Shenzhen to turn into the primary demonstration customary, to attain the carbon peak carbon impartial goal, Liu Lian Major College has ushered in a brand new turnaround. Earlier than the renovation, the varsity constructing, school rooms, atrium, backyard, and different venues lacked interplay, whereas there have been issues similar to ageing amenities and tools, mixing of individuals and automobiles, and inadequate use of area. We hope to plant the seeds of inexperienced within the minds of the scholars by means of the mixing of the zero-carbon idea sooner or later. The renovated campus will turn into an academic, comfy, and environmentally pleasant place to check and reside, offering college students with higher instructional assets and studying experiences. The poor exterior picture of the campus entrance and the chaotic site visitors group is susceptible to security and site visitors issues; Insufficient utilization of open flooring, and incapacity to satisfy diversified educational wants. Carbon sequestration backyard landscapes lack day by day educational engagement, and lecturers and college students lack high quality area for recess actions.
The aim of this renovation is exactly to unravel the security and area utilization issues， and to assist improve the campus into a brand new area that meets the necessities of the brand new syllabus. Along with the mixing of information studying and value-based schooling, college students might be inspired to take part in complete educating and studying actions similar to interdisciplinary thematic, project-based, and task-based studying. The campus was remodeled by revamping entrances, activating corridors, and opening up flooring. The design additionally intelligently manages the campus safety incident-prone grounds to make sure the security of personnel by means of pedestrian and vehicular segregation.
A Low-Carbon, Inexperienced, and Clever Instructing Line. The development of a near-zero carbon inexperienced campus is an entire systematic challenge, which incorporates not solely the development of area but additionally the energy-saving and environmental safety of the know-how, supplies, and tools used on the campus. The design is intricately linked to the inexperienced supplies and tools from CSCEC, and now we have organized a low-carbon, inexperienced, and clever educating line for the campus. The renovation relies on the idea of “gently touching and attaching renewal”, utilizing much less civil engineering and extra metal constructions and maximizing using modular, assembled, prefabricated, and productized building strategies, which shortens the development time whereas considerably decreasing vitality consumption and the influence on educating and studying in the course of the building course of.
Inexperienced Field + Carbon Sequestration Backyard: The metal construction assembled “Inexperienced Field” platform not solely carries the operate of campus zero-carbon demonstration, but additionally gives photo voltaic vitality and photovoltaic energy technology for the campus, and detects vitality consumption knowledge. The Carbon Sequestration Backyard consists of a number of plant modules with excessive carbon sequestration values. Sooner or later, the nursery might be adopted by lessons and can turn into a car for college kids’ nature and exercise observe applications, rising their intimate interplay with nature. On this carbon sequestration backyard, inexperienced applied sciences similar to interactive energy mills, rainwater harvesting techniques, and photovoltaic storage and direct-supply units have been included into the inexperienced modules, which is able to function an necessary node for increasing the educating and communication area of the campus.
Vitality Dice: Subsequent to the varsity’s carbon sequestration backyard, there may be one other “Vitality Dice” that integrates photovoltaic energy technology, vitality storage, DC energy distribution, and versatile energy consumption – a complete clever vitality field independently researched and developed by CSCEC. It’s the vitality management heart of your complete “Photo voltaic photovoltaic, Vitality storage, Direct present and Flexibility” campus, able to balancing and regulating utility energy, photovoltaic energy technology, vitality storage, and constructing energy consumption. Whereas offering environment friendly, secure, and versatile electrical energy for the campus with near-zero vitality consumption, it will possibly additionally provide the town and notice “peak shaving and valley filling”, which has an necessary demonstration position in assuaging the strain of city electrical energy consumption.
Close to-zero vitality demonstration constructing: It selects new supplies similar to high-efficiency insulating rock wool, double-layer hole Low-E glass, and horizontal sunshade modeling to improve the enclosure system, cut back constructing vitality consumption, and considerably enhance indoor thermal consolation.
Knowledge Bookstore: The renovation of libraries and school rooms makes full use of DC tools and AI clever techniques to cut back the vitality consumption of indoor tools, whereas on the similar time penetrating the good campus into the small print and implementation. In the entire inexperienced campus transformation, the applying of the “clever mind” is indispensable. By clever sensors and metering units, real-time, categorized, and itemized monitoring of campus vitality consumption and mastering of campus carbon emissions are carried out, which empowers the varsity to visualise, optimize, and handle knowledge on manufacturing capability.
Activation of Zero Carbon Campus. After the completion of the renovation of the Good Campus of Liu Lian Major College, it will possibly save 28,000kWh of electrical energy yearly, and cut back 13 tons of CO₂ emissions, which is equal to planting 3,250 timber; The entire campus makes full use of photovoltaic assets to steadily improve energy technology by 5%-30%, realizing an annual energy technology of 145,000 kWh for the constructing, rising the utilization fee of renewable vitality by 53.77%, and realizing self-sufficiency in campus electrical energy consumption.
