In the market of new accommodation, the competition and the supply of accommodation reached the peak – more than 3,300 new flats are offered currently in Vilnius, and more than 500 in Kaunas. Trying to distinguish oneselves and overcome the competitors, the Real Estate (RE) Companies make a grab at various marketing tricks.

However, the free travels or the interior design cheques may not buy the demanding Buyers, either – it is noticed that they need clear, long-term benefit more. Therefore, some RE Developers no more fear demonstrating to the Buyers the stages of construction, too, so that they could see how the houses grow and how the Experts inspect them.

WHEN BUILDING THE HOUSES MORE AND MORE OFTEN, THE GEOTHERMAL HEATING IS SELECTED. 52 COTTAGES SHOULD APPEAR IN PILAITĖ HOUSING ESTATE OF VILNIUS. AND THIS ALTERNATIVE WILL BE IMPLEMENTED IN THEM. WHY IS MORE AND MORE ATTENTION PAID TO THE GEOTHERMAL HEATING?

Karaliaučiaus slėnis is the project of cottages in Pilaitė started by the Company Citus Construction. It is planned to build total 52 cottages which will form the closed settlement. The first stage has already reached the middle; 26 cottages are built during it. Half of them are of Class A energetic efficiency, others of Class B.

The geothermal heating is provided for the entire cottage settlement. The Company Manager Mr. States that the geothermal heating was selected due to the wish to present an exclusive product for the market and the orientation towards the rapidly-growing consciousness of Vilnius dwellers, as well as the supply of eco projects.

Tightness testing and smoke test in Karaliaučiaus slėnis

The first measurement of tightness of the buildings for the assurance of the quality of the cottages under construction was performed in the Karaliaučiaus slėnis project.
While constructing the buildings of Class A energetic efficiency, most often, the tightness measurements are performed at the 100 per cent finiteness of the building. We, CITUS CONSTRUCTION, following the recommendations of the Experts of the National Passive House Association, we perform these measurements in parallel with the construction processes.
The first measurement is done after performing the masonry work. The second one will be performed after thermally heating the facade. The third one after equipping the building in full. Thus, we ensure that the construction operations at each stage would be high-quality at the maximum.
In the course of this measurement, the enormous pressure is caused and the smoke is let inside the building. Due to the differences in the pressure, the smoke spurts from the building and shows the places where the tightness has not been ensured. It most often happens in the places of junction of two structures, e.g. of the foundation with the wall, of the wall with the ceiling, in the slopes of windows and doors, by the roof. It is the places where the highest heating losses are incurred.
Thus, while raising the highest criteria of construction quality, we perform the test measurements. At the end of constructions, we will be sure that the cottages of Karaliaučiaus slėnis will be very warm.
