Sound Insulation façade
As part of the Valence team, Nicolas undertakes several renovation projects for railway noise sensitive receivers buildings. Nicolas identifies the weaknesses of insulation of the dwelling’s façade and give specifications to strengthen its acoustic and energetic performance by the replacement of windows and the improvement of the ventilation system.
Nicolas completed the training “ventilation in renovation works” from Evonia in October 2015.
Nicolas took part in the 2015 research project which led to the publication of the article “2015-improvement-of-thermal-insulation-of-residential-buildings-facades-via-acoustic-insulation” (J.A.E. Paris-Newton et al. / Energy Procedia 78 (2015) 3446 – 3451).
