New Study Report | Greece – Compliance and Quality of Works in New Case Studies (New field study/2016)

This study assesses the quality of works, the compliance with the reference values of the National Technical Guides and the compliance with EPC input data for 26 newly built and renovated buildings in Greece.

The quality of works was studied based on on-site inspections and measurements, including airtightness tests, infrared thermography of the building envelope and site visits and inspections to check the actual construction.

The check of compliance with the reference values of the National Technical Guides included ventilation measurements and measurements of temperature and relative humidity.

Finally, the reliability of EPC input data was investigated by comparing the U-values of the design with the actual U-values of the materials used in the construction as reported in the EPC, comparing the design values of technical characteristics of the solar collectors with the technical characteristics used in the construction as reported in the EPC and checking the accuracy of EPC calculations.
