SUSTAINABILITY AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

This is the very first residential building in Latvia built in compliance with the requirements of BREEAM, the internationally recognized sustainable building assessment method.

 

BREEAM (British Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) certified buildings are generally recognized as environmentally and user-friendly, resource efficient construction models. Due to careful and thorough planning, construction, selection of materials and technologies, the building performs as a unified efficient system demonstrating best practices by far surpassing requirements stipulated by the law.

These buildings are of higher property value and demand in the market. According to the worldwide market practice, market value of sustainable buildings, if compared with regular buildings, can be up to 16% higher, management costs - about 8-10% lower and rental costs - about 4% higher.

Few residential addresses can lay claim to being as perfectly located as Felicity Apartments. The building lies in the very centre of Riga and offers an excellent balance between work, home and leisure activities. “Within walking distance” is a phrase you’ll need to get used to, because everything you could ever want is just there.

Foundations The support walls of the underground parking lot are built of secant-type piles (D=420 mm). The foundation under load-bearing columns and walls is made of piles (D-620 mm) at a depth of 6.5- 9.5 m. 

Slabs The intermediate slabs of the building are made of monolith reinforced concrete plates (b=250 mm). A special wire post-suspension system considerably enhances the height of the free space. Mineral wool sound insulation above the slabs (b=20 mm) and the concrete paved floor (b=40 mm) depends noise and vibrations from neighbouring flats. 
Columns and external walls The building is made of a monolith and reinforced concrete structure, with slabs of monolith reinforced concrete. The spatial stability of the building is ensured by torpidity cores along the whole length of the building - monolith concrete staircases. External walls are filled with light concrete blocks and sound-damping mineral wool insulation (b=105 mm). Special energy - efficient anchor bolts are used to fasten the wool. They prevent the formation of "cold bridges" in fastened places. 
Partition walls Walls that separate flats and common-use premises are built of Aeroc® light concrete blocks (b=150 mm), with double-sided mineral wool sound insulation and double cladding with gypsum board. 
The façade The building has an energy-efficient and multi-layered ventilated façade. The frontal façade has decorative plate cladding that is identical to stone. It comes from the German Agrob buchtal® company. The courtyard façade is plastered, with high-quality aluminium cassette cladding along the upper floors and the lining of the roof. (2) The roof The building has a composite roof with rainwater drainage into a closed system. Hydro-insulation of the roof is ensured by two layers of Technoelast®, as well as by Paroc® mineral wool (b=200 mm). 
Windows High-quality Schüco® aluminium profile window frames with three glass packs (b=38 mm) and two selective glass Termix profiles have been installed in the building. The active frames of the windows have fastening mechanisms for ventilation. The selected installation technology guarantees effective and safe window sealing in the opening, also fully preventing the formation of condensate on the glass. The co-efficient of thermal conductivity is U~0.8W/m2K, which considerably exceeds Latvian building norms and requirements.
The water supply system Water delivery and drainage are provided by the city's central water pipeline and drainage systems (the Rīga Water company). Water pressure is boosted and water is mechanically purified with installed equipment. Each flat has an individual hot and cold water meter with remote meter reading options. All pipes are insulated, and all communication shafts have sound insulation in order to reduce the noise level. 
The power supply system Links to the power system are provided by the Distribution Network company. Each flat has an individual meter with remote meter reading options. Energy-efficient LED laps are used to light common-use premises. (3) 
The heating system The building is linked to the central heating system of the Rīga Heat company. Each flat has a heat meter, Purmo Compact radiators with pre-settable thermostatic valves, and an adjustable thermostat. Heat consumption readings can be taken from a distance. 
The ventilation and air conditioning system The sanitary premises of each flat have a mechanical exhaust system with a household exhaust ventilator and exhaust air duct that are connected to the main riser. Kitchens have air doctors that can be connected to the cooker hood with an exhaust ventilator. The air duct is connected to the main riser. An option for each flat is a set of installed Hi-Wall type air conditioners on the walls of preselected rooms. Each flat has a separate cooling meter with a connection to the central register system. 7th floor apartments can have an installed fireplace if the owner so desires. 
Safety measures A passive lightning protection system has been installed in the building, as have fire detection systems in each flat and security systems for common-use premises. The staircase doors of the building are lockable and equipped with no-contact code locks. Keys offer alternative access. There are video surveillance systems in the common-use premises of the building and outside of the building. 
Communications systems All flats, the central and courtyard doors on the 1st floor, and the staircase entrance door in the basement all have BPT® video intercom equipment.
