Architectural Design

Control of energy consumption, sustainability of the construction, protection of the environment and a healthy living: all these goals are achieved thanks to our bioclimatic design and our commitment to the newest Energy Planning Regulation.

Architectural design:

Particular emphasis is given to architectural planning and construction studies in accordance with the new building regulations.

Emphasis is also given on the bioclimatic design of indoor and outdoor spaces based on their best performance in relation to the microclimate of the area.

That happens in order to create the right conditions of heat and cooling in an absolutely natural way, ensuring energy savings of up to 30% compared to an 80%  of an old building.

These percentages include annual energy costs and reduced costs for electrical installations, and we must not forget the environmental benefit.

At the same time, the design of our constructions is in line with the new Building Energy Efficiency Regulation. In this way we secure the classification of our houses in the higher categories of Energy Classification.

In this way we succeed:

Reduced consumption for heating, cooling and hot water, about 60% compared to conventional constructions.

The high thermal insulation, the absence of thermal bridges and the great air-tightness protect energy houses from moisture and temperature changes and give the construction an unlimited lifetime

Constant temperature and great thermal comfort ensure a healthy and comfortable living.

Soundproofing

Earthquake Resistant Structures

Fully committed to the National Anti Earthquake Regulation, our company applies all needful ground controls and uses only certified equipment and materials for the concrete placing.

Bearing structure


The construction of the bearing body respects the stricter specifications of the Greek anti-earthquake regulation and ensures the highest anti-seismic protection index of the building. Soil strain control is performed to select the most appropriate foundation type.

Particular attention is paid to the perpendicularity and precise alignment of the formwork, as well as the proper overlapping of the reinforcement.

Prior to the start of the concreting, the chisel and the iron reinforcement are controlled. During the concrete work, quality concrete samples are taken, which are sent for strength testing of the concrete. Our company uses the highest quality concrete grade (for residential) C 25/30 and certified with high quality steel B500C.

 

Energy Efficient Construction

Energy Efficient shield and joinery is applied with the exclusive use of certified materials by technical experts. That way we provide you with high levels of soundproof and insulation.

Energy-efficient building

The energy shielding of the buildings is achieved by the complete thermal insulation of the building shell, using the certified materials of the leading companies and the application by specialized technical garages.

Specifically:

Thermal insulation of load-bearing body with heat-insulating material

Placing thermal insulation boards on the exterior surfaces of a building (Thermopaniser system).

Insulation of roofs or roof tiles, with the application of certified soundproofing and heat-insulating materials, ensuring waterproof and thermal insulation of the concrete surfaces.

Waterproofing foundations and underground.

Installation of energy-efficient frames

The installation of heat-shrinking aluminum or pvc frames combined with energy glazing achieves high thermal insulation and sound insulation.

Engineering Equipment and Automations

We provide you with high technology energy saving equipment that maximizes your convenience in the most eco-friendly way.

Mechanical equipment

Particular emphasis is given to mechanical design and construction equipment. The heating-cooling systems with a heat pump are characterized by high efficiency and high energy savings of more than 60% compared to conventional heating systems.

Energy heaters or energy fireplaces associated with radiators enhance energy savings.

The use of solar panels as an alternative form of energy ensures the heating of the water for use or even for space heating, at zero energy cost and with the same environmental benefit.

Electrical - Hydraulic Mechanical Automation

Electromechanical studies provide automation that facilitates indoor living, ergonomics, safety and energy savings.

For example:

indoor-outdoor lighting infrastructure using LED lamps

use of external photocell light fixtures

automatic room lighting for maximum energy savings

general home voltage stabilizers

ergonomic fitting of power sockets and switches etc.

Home Security systems

We reserve your safety by using top quality security alarm systems and cameras (CCTV).

Alarm systems - security cameras

Advanced alarm systems and CCTV, capable of connecting and communicating over the Internet.

Materials and service crews

Minoan employs the most qualified service crews and our materials are certified by internationally approved companies.

Read More

Materials, technical workshops

Our company uses certified materials of internationally recognized companies, which are selected through demanding testing. The training of engineers and technicians through seminars and presentations from the material production companies is regular.

Our specialized technical crews acquire certified experience diplomas and technical training from the materials manufacturing company for their proper use and application.

Client support and communication

We undertake all the bureaucratic procedures during the construction process and until the delivery. During this phase, our clients are fully informed about every step of the construction process through constant updates and photo reports that we send them on a regular basis.

Support and communication with the customer

From the beginning to the completion of the construction project, our company undertakes all the bureaucratic procedure with all the entities or services involved from the issuance of the building permit until the completion and delivery of the construction.

The customer is in regular contact with the client and informs him with written weekly reports of progress of the works accompanied by photographic material in order to immediately monitor the progress of the project.

Through the previous scheduling, it is previously informed of any issues that concern it, so that there are no delays in the construction phases.

Warranty

All our clients are provided with a construction warranty, including the warranty of the equipment and the material categories of the supplier. However, Minoan Homes will be there for you even when the warranty deadline is over.

Customer Warranty

Our company provides a warranty for the constructions and the corresponding warranty provided by the supplier in terms of equipment or material categories.

Besides, it is next to the client for anything that is needed or arises after the end of our guarantee.
