Maintenance and improvement work in the Principality’s schools and nurseries
As it does every year, the Public Buildings Maintenance Office, in coordination with the Department of Education, Youth and Sport, has been undertaking repair, maintenance and improvement work in all of the Principality’s schools during the summer period. The Office has also been working with Monaco City Hall to carry out similar work in crèches.
This year, there has been a particular focus on security measures at all buildings used by the 13 schools and five crèches. Bars have been installed and opaque anti-intruder coatings have been applied to doors and windows. Security alarms have also been fitted in some schools where this was considered necessary.
Improving energy efficiency has been another focus. The installation of energy meters linked to a centralised technical management system means that school management teams will now be able to carefully control and manage the occupation of rooms and premises. In addition, the replacement of external fixtures and fittings will improve the acoustic and thermal insulation of the buildings.
“The energy transition has been the common theme in the Office’s approach to this work for a number of years. This can be seen in the installation of LED lighting during every renovation project,” highlights Anthony de Sevelinges, Head of the Public Buildings Maintenance Office, adding “our objective is to reach 100% by next year.”
By the end of November 2018, nearly 100 photovoltaic panel modules will have been installed in the roof of École des Révoires. This clean energy source will be used to cover up to 20% of the school’s energy needs.
