The Planoles's project consists of the renovation of an apartment building. This includes a rendered façade with CoverRock 035 in 60 mm thickness.

The project has two objectives:

1. The quantification of the energy saving in gas for heating consumption, controlling the gas consume of the tenants and the temperature inside their homes.

2. Learn about the render system (application, difficult points, recommendations, etc.).

An acoustic test to see the improvement of the system is also being conducted.
