Its objective is to guide construction stakeholders to better understand the three objectives of RE2020 and to demonstrate that using prefabricated concrete solutions already makes it possible to fully meet the environmental and comfort requirements of the new regulations. and to promote the energy sobriety of buildings.
Intended for all those involved in the construction industry and in priority for CMists, promoters and thermal and environmental design offices, this 24-page guide, educational, fun and supported by concrete cases, is divided into two main chapters:
- Understand the objectives of RE2020: its three objectives (energy sobriety, coolness of buildings in the event of high temperatures and reduction of the carbon impact) and its application schedule, the changes between RT2012 and RE2020, the calculation of the carbon impact at building level and the LCA method, compliance with construction carbon thresholds requiring that all lots contribute to reducing the carbon impact of buildings.
- Use Smart Concrete Systems to pass RE2020: prefabricated concrete solutions for housing to meet the three objectives of RE2020, and therefore, to build low carbon, to further reduce the carbon impact of concrete construction systems and to promote the summer comfort linked to the inertia of the buildings.
Through Smart Concrete Systems, the FIB has initiated a program to enhance the intelligence embedded in each of the prefabricated concrete solutions, in terms of saving territories, resources, energy and functionality, which are firmly inscribed in a responsible and connected way of production.
The publication of the guide is part of this framework and the collective communication initiated by the Federation to promote the contribution of prefabricated concrete solutions to reduce the environmental footprint, in particular the walls and floors intended for the markets of individual houses and collective housing. .
It is supplemented by a range of other tools: case studies, decision-making tools, site sheets with testimonials from design offices to quantify the application parameters of RE2020, a web series of videos testimonials to have the messages embodied by design offices, builders, etc.
La Federation of the Concrete Industry (FIB) contributes in France to the promotion of the interests of manufacturers of concrete products and ensures the representation of this industrial sector with public authorities, local communities and the professional environment. It represents 100% of French companies VSEs, SMEs and SMIs, a very dense territorial network of industrialists, local industrial companies that create wealth and direct local jobs that cannot be relocated.
Le Concrete Industry Study and Research Center (Cerib) is an Industrial Technical Center, recognized as being of public utility and established in 1967 jointly by the Minister responsible for Industry and the Minister responsible for the Economy and Finance, at the request of the Federation of Industry concrete (FIB). With more than 170 employees and a high level of expertise, its test equipment for construction products and materials is deployed over 15.000 m 2 of laboratories. The Center carries out its activity between tests and evaluations, studies and research, standardization and certification, technical support and transfer of knowledge, and has a training center. Research operator of the Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research, its eligible R&D work can benefit from the Research Tax Credit.
