Uponor Iberia headquarters and logistics hub - Móstoles, Madrid
In the office building, Uponor´s thermally active building structures have been used for heating and cooling. The system is actually built into the floor and the ceiling. The system uses concrete´s thermal mass by embedding Uponor piping circuits into the actual structure of the building, wich then carry water used for heating and cooling the installations. The TABS system helps keep the environment noticeably cooler, in addition to adding to the basic heating in the building. The piping uses the concrete core of the building´s mass to store and release the thermal load. The Uponor LHD heating ald cooling distribution system makes it possible to cut energy distribution losses by 20% compared to conventional systems.
In addition, the 400 m2 os floor-space occupied by the Uponor Academy include a system of active slabs that works via thick decking of prefabricated concrete. This area is supplied by renewable energy: solar thermal energy, absorption and geothermal power, and is a clear reference point for the "nearly zero energy" concept.
The logistics hub incorporates an invisible industrial radiating flooring and allows an area of high-level thermal comfort in a building in wich, due to great vertical distance between the floor and the ceiling, other, conventional, all-air systems would be inadequate and not very comfortable.
Moreover, the plumbing system serving the bathrooms, washrooms and kitchens has been executed using the exclusive and unique Uponor Quick&Easy system. The Uponor office and logistics complex includes over 150 points of consumption.
The building complex is thus a paradigm of modern architecture, energy efficiency and thermal comfort.
No wonder then, that in 2012, the building was awarded first prize by ASPRIMA, (Madrid Developers and Constructors Association), for "Best Technological and Sustainable Building Initiative".
Varicool heating and cooling panels were installed to the meeting room's ceiling. The new hydronic system replaced the old fan coil unit system. Varicool system is a radiant heating and cooling system. The panels do not heat or cool the indoor air directly but the surfaces what radiant covers.
Le bâtiment d’enseignement supérieur et de recherche pour l’Institut Mines-Télécom intègre un système de dalle active sur une surface de 40 000 m2. Le bâtiment économe en énergie accueillera une gamme variée d’activités propres à l’Institut Mines - Télécom : formations, recherches, transfert et innovation.
Thermal concrete core activation with Uponor Contec provides economical, energy-efficient and sustainable building temperature control in the new landmark Adlershof Science and Technology Centre.
A hygienically optimal drinking water installation was integrated into the new office complex – thanks to Uni Pipe PLUS within a very short time.
First radiant ceiling cooling renovation project in tropical climate – Singapore
La dalle active Uponor est intégrée depuis 2017 dans l’immeuble Delta Green, bâtiment tertiaire de 4600m2 comprenant 4 niveaux. Celui-ci est le premier bâtiment de la région tout à fait autonome en énergie.
Uponor were nominated as the sole supplier for radiant heating systems for the Sunesis Schools schemes, with Main Contractor Willmott Dixon. Sunesis is a Joint Venture between Scape and Willmott Dixon, built on the combined experience of public sector know-how and private expertise. They are the market leader in delivering pre-designed buildings across a range of market sectors. Every design has a defined layout, specification, fixed cost and timescale to construct. The full benefits of a full BIM model are also utilised.
