Marché International

The entire roof slope facing due south with an inclination of 12° is covered with photovoltaic modules. The modules of anthracite, form a discontinuous roofing, with tiles which overlap. Thus, the cover does not require an additional layer for the watertightness. Market Support Office is the first office in Switzerland to really achieve a zero energy balance.
