Tour Lilleurope - Euralille (F)
The ‘Tour Lilleurope’ building is a 110 m high office building consisting of 25 floors. The building offers 24,000 m² of office space. This prestigious tower is situated in the very centre of the business district Euralille (France) At the end of 2009 its owner, BNP Paribas, decided to have 7.000 m² of windows lined with the sun-reflecting and insulating Umisol® glass foils. Buildings with large window panes are important energy consumers. The air-conditioning often runs in ‘overdrive’ in order to avoid a greenhouse effect, resulting in excessive CO2 emission and a lofty energy bill. So it comes down to finding a sun blocking, insulating and energy saving solution that pays off the whole year round.
