Due to the lack of appropriate and energy effective premises, Ādaži Free Valdorf School needs modern sports hall for sport lessons and sport activities. At the present moment school lacks its own premises. In the framework of the project, promoter intends to build low energy sports hall that would demonstrate low energy consumption advantages, and would educate the society about climate changes, sustainability of passive buildings. The technical documentation has been already developed. Further steps require building of the sports hall, installing renewable energy technologies, construction and monitoring. Several publicity and demonstration actions will be organised: opening and finishing of construction works; informative seminar; press releases; information in mass media etc. All the above mentioned actions should lead to the high quality, energy efficient and modern premises for sports that would use 14.03 kWh/m2 a year. The essential target - the sports hall would meet the necessary environmental requirements, e.g. reduced CO2 emission, and would ensure the sound and environmentally friendly place for student activities.
Summary of project results
The Adazi Region is situated in the Northern part of the Pieriga Region - 25km from the centre of Riga, the number of citizens within the territory of the region is constantly increasing. Due to the lack of appropriate premises, Adazi Free Valdorf School rented a gym from Adazi sport complex that was built during the 70’s of the previous century and does not meet the necessary sanitary requirements. Project's objective was to build low energy sports hall for Adazi Free Valdorf School to provide premises for sport activities. New hall has been built and opened. New sports hall solve the lack of premises for sports, demonstrate low energy consumption advantages, and educates the society, especially children, about climate changes and sustainability of energy efficiency. All of project's objectives are achieved. Construction of the sports hall included installation of renewable energy technologies. To inspect building quality air permeability test and thermal imaging was carried out. Besides that, several publicity and demonstration actions was organised: opening and finishing of construction works; informative seminar; press releases; information in mass media and on internet as well as informative tablet. All the above mentioned actions leaded to the high quality, energy efficient and modern premises for sports that would use less than 14.03 kWh/m2 per year. The essential target - the sports hall meets the necessary environmental requirements, e.g. reduced CO2 emissions, and ensures secured and environmentally friendly place for student activities.
