About the Project

The overall objective of the international PAPIRUS project is to promote, implement and validate innovative solutions enabling the European community to achieve sustainable construction. The project implies an introduction of a new public procurement process focused on providing materials characterized by near zero energy consumption for the repair and construction of buildings in four European locations.

The project involves representatives of the public sector, which accounts for a significant proportion of the total number of existing buildings in Europe. The public sector has become an important factor in stimulating and serving as a model for the transformation of the market towards more efficient products, buildings and services.

Omsorgsbygg (PAPIRUS Partner from Oslo) has launched a new public procurement of innovative solutions within the PAPIRUS project trying to put to use all the experiences from the prior PAPIRUS procurements.

The tender is for supply of windows and insulation for three kindergartens that are undergoing renovation. – We are using the information we got from the market event and the one-to-one meetings, says technical coordinator in Omsorgsbygg Flemming Idsøe.

Windows tender

The windows will be evaluated on life cycle cost (LCC) and CO2 emissions. – Changing the windows will make the buildings use less energy at the same time we want to make sure we choose products with low needs of maintenance and a small impact on the environment. Environmental product declarations (EPDs) will be used to compare the global warming potential of the different offers. In addition we are using a LCC-calculator to evaluate the price of the product through its full life cycle. Omsorgsbygg is a public building owner and we are responsible for maintaining the buildings. We need to focus on the total price for the window not the purchased price only. The price should include the maintenance need and the lifetime of the product, says Idsøe.

Insulation tender

The insulation need to fulfill some minimum demands and will be evaluated on purchase price and CO2emissions. – In these refurbishment projects it made sense to preserve the existing stud walls giving us less flexibility in the choice of insulation. It needs to fit the existing construction, says Idsøe.

The tender deadline is 20th of June and Omsorgsbygg is planning a tender conference to help the bidders provide the necessary information.
