Natural Ventilation

 In continuation of research conducted at LESO / EPFL, Estia has developped special expertise in the field of natural ventilation.For each project, the potential for passive cooling through openings is subject to a detailed exploration (design, design and positioning of the opening, automation, etc.). The experience accumulated by the team is utilized to avoid summer overheating, especially for our projects in Mediterranean climates. We are also deeply involved in the development and maintenance of specific simulation tools.
