Lycée Chevrollier,Angers, France
The shallow plan of the building results in a very large surface area and this, together with high Uvalue and infiltration rate,made improvement to the thermal performance of the envelope a high priority. However, the shallow plan also means that there is good availability of daylight over the
floor plan.This could realize electrical energy savings due to reduced artificial lighting loads, provided appropriate control systems were incorporated. Finally the problem of overheating in the south-facing classrooms needed to be addressed.
