Application of the double skin façade in rehabilitation of the industrial buildings in Serbia

This study aims to check the various possibilities of application of the double layer of the facade in the rehabilitation of industrial facilities in Serbia, with the aim of improving the energy performance of buildings and energy savings for heating and cooling. Industrial facility of Raska textile factory in Novi Pazar was taken as a model for this study. This facility needs to be adapted into the building for administrative purposes. Using the existing structural system of the building, the existing shell and infrastructure of the building, the scheme of future business functional areas of the building have been proposed, which defines the thermal zones in the building. The paper examined various modalities of double layer on the east and west facades of the building, adding a curtain wall with single glass as the outer membrane. The results of the energy characteristics of the proposed rehabilitation of the building were obtained using a computer simulation program EnergyPlus and software DesignBuilder, based on climatic parameters of the Republic of Serbia and the parameters of necessary thermal comfort defined by the Regulations on energy efficiency in buildings and in accordance with standard EN 15251. The criteria on the basis of which the valorization of improving the energy efficiency of the building would be performed are the thermal comfort, the required amount of energy for heating and cooling the facility and reduction of carbon-dioxide emission.
