Pladur® has supplied a total of 80,000 m² of material in the construction of Torre Bolueta in Bilbao, a total of 192 homes spread over 28 floors of 88 meters that make it the highest Passivhaus building in the world.

The objective of this type of construction under the Passivhaus standard, increasingly higher, is to become buildings with almost zero energy consumption. To achieve this status, measures are taken such as the improvement of insulation, the elimination of thermal bridges, air tightness and mechanical ventilation controlled by double flow. A trend that is proliferating more and more.

As explained by Iker Hidalgo Ortega, manager of the company 'Ixar Aislamientos' and official installer of Pladur®, for this work erected by the developer Visesa, Pladur N and Pladur H1 plates have been used when direct resistance to water has been required. and humidity to cover the interior perimeter of the houses, ceilings and interior partitions. This has allowed the line of hermeticity achieved with a plastering on brick, is protected, thus ensuring its durability.

One of the most obvious advantages of a Passivhaus building is the "great reduction in energy demand. In addition to this, the great improvement in the construction involves the elimination of pathologies related to condensation due to the absence of thermal bridges and the comfort is considerably improved with a constant temperature, without thermal gradients, absence of noise, high quality in the air without dust, pollen, etc. "argues Iker Hidalgo.

A work that is expected to end in December this year and with which, once again, Pladur® is committed to sustainability and fighting for climate change. No doubt a great bet for the future that will proliferate over the years.
