Musée des Beaux-Arts Renovation, Dijon, France

Musée des Beaux-Arts Renovation

As one of the largest museums of France, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon is known for its rich collections of sculptures, paintings, art objects and various other items from the past and due to the historical interest of the building that holds them, the Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy. The legacy of the Dukes of Burgundy allows to present masterpieces of the late Middle Ages. As part of the renovation of the Musée des Beaux Arts, Transsolar performed various analysis and simulations to show how the suggested improvements can minimize the energy consumption of the building and can reduce the size of some ventilation equipment:

  • Analysis of the influence of various internal loads generated by lights, occupants and computer equipment
  • Analysis of efficiency of radiant floor heating and cooling, possibility of reducing sections of ventilation ducts by implementing radiant floor systems
  • Analysis of solar gains
  • Improvement of insulation
  • Improvement of glazing
  • Study the impact of daylight on the visual comfort
