Fensterbau Frontale has organized a competition encouraging students to put forward their views on sustainability and retrofitting by the means of the competition.

Buildings are the amongst the largest energy consumers of the world. In India, we have a great legacy of following sustainable building traditions, intrinsic to the architecture. However, by blindly adopting global standards of fenestration, we are losing a remarkable opportunity to carry on the tradition.  As we know, the most sustainable building is always the one that has already been built. Rather than destroy and recreate infrastructure, it makes more sense to make use of the embodied energy in buildings. By respecting that fundamental precept, we come to the conclusion that is far more sustainable to retrofit existing public buildings for better efficiency rather than make new buildings.

Choose an iconic building in your city or the nearest metropolitan area. It must have been constructed before 1990 and must be at least 6 stories tall. Privately owned buildings are allowed, but public use buildings are preferred.

The goal is to achieve at least 50% reduction in the energy consumed by the building by retrofitting the façade for better efficiency. Within this is the chance to give an existing cultural and city icon a new lease of life.

It is assumed that the other 50% can be reduced by better internal planning, upgrading HVAC, mechanical and lighting systems. In the end, buildings can achieve net zero status, i.e. they produce as much energy as they consume
