BuildTog Project in Darmstadt - External thermal insulation composite system (ETICS) with insulation materials made of Neopor®

Create architectural freedom - with energy-efficient and cost-effective construction: this was the objective of the BuildTog project in Darmstadt, Germany. Using thermal insulationmade of Neopor®, it was possible to accommodate the 37 flats inone building envelope with 0.26 W/m2K.

  • BuildTog project of the EURHONET (European Housing Network): new generation of residential buildings
  • Objective:
    • Best energy efficiency and cost-effective construction
    • High-quality architecture
    • Optimizing planning methods and replicability
  • In Darmstadt: 37 apartments on four floors and a penthouse level (total living space: 3,600 m2;
  • Quality of the insulated building envelope: 0.26 W/m2;*K
  • Thickness of external insulation: 0.12 W/m2;*K (26 cm of Neopor® 031)

"The enhanced insulation performance and reduced insulation board thickness of Neopor open up new architectural possibilities. And by improing energy efficiency while being so easy and practical to use, Neopor enables a consistent and necessary step in the right direction."

Exterior Insulation

Exterior insulation with an External Thermal Insulation Composite System (ETICS) has excellent structural-physical properties for the thermal insulation of facades. ETICS with EPS (Styropor®) have proved their worth in practice for more than 50 years. Insulation boards made of Neopor® continue in this tradition.
