The concept for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) in Athens, Greece was born from the desire to give Athens a state-of-the-art cultural destination, a place entirely dedicated to the promotion of the arts and learning. The project is composed of two main facilities, the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera, which are merged into a single building.
The project is designed to be a neutral emission facility, and will meet rigorous sustainability goals. A 108,000 ft² (10,000 m²) canopy composed of interconnected photovoltaic cell panels will support the daily power needs of the site. Natural ventilation strategies will be used to the greatest possible extent to further enhance the energy efficiency outcomes of the project.
Baumann Consulting is providing full Commissioning Services for all technical systems, including LEED Fundamental and Enhanced Cx, as well as Measurement and Verification services for this extraordinary project.
