National School of Engineering of Bretagne-Sud by Nicolas Michelin Architects

The National School of Engineering of Bretagne-Sud (South of Bretagne), France, designed by French agency Nicolas Michelin Architects (namely Agence Nicolas Michelin & Associés), is currently under construction. This 6,000-square-meter building is implanted on a site of the Université de Bretagne Sud (University of South Bretagne), in the city of Lorient, France.

Characteristics of this building include a green terraced construction with, on both sides two glazed staircases, that will reveal internal circulations.

Nicolas Michelin continues his research on sustainable buildings with the integration of numerous innovations such as this chimney ventilation system that will be used for his new project the French Ministry of Defense, Balard, France, also known as French Pentagon.
This system of ventilation will be mounted on top of the roof.

As for the facade cladding, this will consist of wood panels and metal sandwich panels. The green terraced construction to the South will allow for the optimal diffusion of daylight within the complex.

Other sustainable strategies include amorphous photovoltaic panels that are adapted to the local climate, as brises soleils (a sun-shading technique that prevent building for overheating in the summer), reinforced thermal isolation, as well as rainwater harvesting system.

The rainwater harvesting system, for instance, will contribute to watering green areas, a part of the sanitary needs, and the refreshing of the building in warm seasons.

The construction is scheduled to be completed by 2012-2013.
