Ôzento, an approach at the heart of the sustainable development
Ôzento was the object of a global reflection to limit his impact on the environment and optimize energy performances.
Our objective: design an esthetic housing environment while maintaining a dedication to sustainable development.
We think that these concerns are shared by a great majority of people in the world, thus we integrated them from the beginning into our reflection with the objective to return this accessible housing environment to all. We wished besides a loft which can be set up/disassembled according to projects.
While multiplying the following various initiatives we hope to make a real impact.
Production in the factory
We carry out our modules in factories for reasons of cost but above all of ecological impact. We use an economical constructional system (metal structures fully mounted and upgraded, up to the interior finishes, in the factory) and therefore zero energy.
This choice has many advantages in terms of sustainable development: the benefit of the quality of an industrial process, improved working conditions for employees, a strong reduction of the impacts and nuisances of this construction site in urban areas.
Limitation of environmental impact
The loft rests on piles that allow you to leave no trace on the earth. You can disassemble your house after a few years … and the land will be intact!
Choice of materials
We prioritize eco-friendly materials. For example, based on resource price and availability, we use :
Chestnut tree or pine for terrace floor
Larch for the claustras
Double glazing with thermal bridge rupture
Use of recyclable elements
Our models use recyclable elements to make it easier for you to improve your ecological footprint. Examples include:
Recyclable PVC coatings
Recyclable textiles for curtains
A monolayer EPDM membrane, a material with limited environmental impact, which is an inert and fully recyclable material
Thermal regulations RT2012
The objective of these regulations is to reduce energy consumption while favoring new technologies. Whether it is for heating, ventilation, or lighting, the RT2012 regulations significantly reduce the energy consumption of a loft.
A “naturally ecological loft” has to guarantee the healthiest possible inside. With the RT2012, housing environments are air-tight from external pollution. The VMC is specially dedicated to ensure the air is fresh and reduce humidity.
We do our best to optimize the direction of your loft: south-facing lofts benefit most from solar heat and natural light. We will also advise you to optimize your land. For example, hedgerows can protect the north to limit heat losses, and in the south, trees can protect your loft from the sun.
Heating accounts for 60-75% of household energy expenditures… which contribute nearly a quarter to greenhouse gas emissions. To limit this, we propose other alternatives:
For example, the thermodynamic water heater, or the solar water heater via photovoltaic panels on your roof. Another alternative often preferred by our customers is the wood stove.
Home automation equipment
To avoid waste, we offer to equip your lofts in home automation. For example, it is possible to set up presence detectors for light, to open and close the roller shutters depending on the sun.
Once your module is delivered, we will provide you with a best practice guide to optimise the maintenance of your home. Indeed, your maintenance is paramount in taking full advantage of the eco-friendly design. Mismanagement of openers, heaters, or household appliances can increase the energy consumption of any home.
