Low energy house in Szeged 

August 2017

This low energy single-family home was built in the suburbs of Szeged using combined foundation methods. Given the ground conditions, a strip foundation was executed under the outer walls of the building, with cast-in-place reinforced concrete footing on which a concrete slab was placed.

The thermal insulation of the floor was further improved by incorporating Energocell granules not just under the reinforced concrete slab but also around the interior sides of the strip foundation, in a 30-40 cm thick layer that reaches down to the lower plane of the foundation. The thermal insulation of the floor is provided by an Energocell foam glass layer of 30-cm finished layer-thickness.
