PROJECT SUMMARY

Sustainable refurbishment of a primary school

The challenge of this project is to remain effective in a zone of political tension in addition to addressing climatic and local constraints. The refurbishment of the Abu Hindi Primary School of the Bedouin community is located near Al Azarije (Eizariya), and less than 10km east of Jerusalem.

The first phase of the restoration project was completed by September 2012 and achieves climatic comfort and energy sustainability by improving natural ventilation.
