Green Buildings

Despite the attempts of several private companies to implement existing technologies in the construction of homes with zero power consumption, such construction does not have high demand from developers. This is due to the mentality of Russian people, who are accustomed to, that they are holders of the most extensive reserves of natural resources and low level of adaptation of foreign experience in Russian conditions. It is very difficult to assess the benefits of the operation of the building when the cost and complexity of its construction many times more than conventional homes. Do not look for ways to reduce the cost of materials and technologies for construction free homes. For example, such material as foamed glass, which brings the best qualities of the various heaters to the production of which was ready to start Krasnoyarsk firm “Construction”, found no support for investors. Although, to run the plant, the capacity of which would be enough to ensure the needs of all construction sites in Krasnoyarsk, needed investments in the region of 4 billion rubles. Therefore foamglass delivered either because border, or use the development of neighboring regions whose characteristics are far inferior to the claimed Krasnoyarsk researchers.

Consequently, to not cheap material cost is added and the transport consumption. For a country like Russia can not offer a universal draft Green Buildings. Too much territory, too large differences in climate, topography, the soils in the presence of natural resources. For some cities European part of our country it is possible to apply the experience of western countries, leaving their proposals unchanged. But for the Siberian regions need something new.

Perhaps it will be a symbiosis of Western ideas with centuries-old experience of the builders of northern peoples. They really have something to learn. Consciously or blindly following the centuries-old traditions, the builders of the northern peoples genius simply solve difficult problems. Moreover, in conditions of industrial production, these techniques can unify and replicate, to provide universal mounting and as simple and quick assembly a sufficiently large structures. As you know, in terms of angles facilities undergoing big heat loss – this is due to the advent of cold bridge design in this troubled place, as well as the orientation of the compass. The solution can peek in the design of the needle, Yurts, The Plague. They no angles, they are made in the form of a dome. Moreover, there is a ready-made version of the structural design of buildings – a geodesic dome. For example, a Spanish company Valpak, has made the cost of carcass per square meter residential area of 89.57 euros. Thus it is possible to obtain not only a home that can save you a lot of money in the operation, but that does not require large expenditures on the construction stage. To create a home zero energy for the conditions in Russia there are many moves and variations. They require a detailed study in the very near future. The result of these studies will become economically profitable, environmentally friendly House, backed by not only the drawings and calculations, but also building a base that is available for each locality, scientific development, running into mass production, as well as the only positive reviews, the tenants of these houses future.
