New video released in Tampere to testify to the benefits of energy efficient refurbishment

As the renovation work has now been completed in Tampere, the city has produced a video to show the work undertaken in one of the buildings refurbished in the framework of the EU-GUGLE project. The ‘Start-to-finish’ video of the retrofitting work carried out in the As Oy Kaupinpirtti building presents the objectives of the project as well as the measures implemented. These measures include:

  • Renovation of the façade with added insulation;
  • Installation of an air source heat pump system with heat recovery;
  • Optimisation of the heating network;
  • Installation of state of the art heat exchangers;
  • Refurbishment of the ventilation system;
  • Remote monitoring and building automation;
  • Installation of energy efficient windows, glazing of balconies, replacement of doors;
  • Energy efficient LED lighting system with motion detection.



The residents of the renovated buildings in the district of Tammela seem to be largely satisfied with the result of the EU-GUGLE renovations. To testify to the multiple benefits of energy efficient retrofitting and encourage further inhabitants to launch their own renovation project, this video will be used as a tool to raise awareness on this topic in Finland and abroad.
