The first zero-energy test building in the Podlasie voivodship  was built in Bielsk Podlaski. It is a building made in modular technology. The modules prepared earlier in the factory were assembled in one day, creating the entire structure. In the next days, balconies, a terrace and façade will be installed.

- It is a prototype, with low energy consumption, multi-family residential building, which is being created as part of a project co-financed from European funds. The building will undergo various tests to help in the development and subsequent implementation in production at the Unihouse Modular houses factory in Bielsk Podlaski of modules from which zero-energy multi-family buildings will be built - says Marta Nazarczuk, manager of R&D department of Unihouse.

The building consists of 12 modules and has 4 floors - on each floor there are three modules. The building uses new technologies - there are three different types of external walls, three types of roof and three types of floors on the ground. There will also be a heat pump and photovoltaic panels. In the future, the building will be subjected to various tests carried out with the equipment purchased as part of the EU project - acoustic tests, tightness, settling, deformation, and in all the external partitions are placed temperature and humidity sensors to check the hydrothermal behavior of the walls in real conditions

We would like to remind, that on August 10, 2017, representatives of Unibep SA and members of the Podlaskie Voivodship Executive Board have signed a contract for the implementation of this research and development project.

The total value of the project is almost PLN 4.5 million. Co-financing from RPOWP is PLN 2.4 million. Its implementation is to end in November 2019.
