Rue de la Porta

The goal wasi to demolish an unsafe and unhealthy building in the city and to replace it by a nice new apartment building owned by a social owner.
This apartment building was made in an aerated concrete called Siporex. It was a 'premiere' for a four storey building, ever to be built in Corsica. This material is of a High Energy Performance Standard. The building has been fitted with 12 m2 of solar thermal systems; the latter will produce hot water for sanitary use. This system will induce lower energy consumption.
