Plug 'n Plus | add-on modules for every excisting building

Short description (max. 250 characters)
The „plug ‘n play“ - Box is as a technical add-on system.
You can use it on every reconstruction with the goal of saving energy and generating energy out of renewable resources.
It solves many problems, which come up when you try to reconstruct old buildings with a bad fabric of a building.
The box solves all complicated and constructive challenging problems, like new water- and heatingpipes , drainpipes or aerating tubes.
It is no longer necessary to break down walls or floors in the existing building, because all rooms, which need this technical supply, are situated in the plug’n play box. The box itself is able to be completely pre-built and contains all building equipment which is needed.
On the roof and the front the box has photovoltaic modules, all over. This and a solid reconstruction of the existing building, provides an energy-plus building, which generates more energy than it uses.

Detailed description (max. 500 words)
Our idea involves an enterprise who will develop our plug n'plus boxes and customers like private persons, local authorities, or real estate investment companies. Our idea combines renewable energy, technical engineering and the necessity in the world population. The western world has got enough buildings to life, and instead of breaking them down, to build new ones, we should think about a concept to reuse them and make them fit for the future.

Our concept contains every part of this problem. We save the existing buildings and try to make them to be their own PowerStation. For heating we use for example geothermal energy and heat exchanger for the air conditioning. But with every step in development of renewable energy systems our Plug n’plus boxes are able to adapt.
The boxes can be installed all over the world with only a few changes in the construction, and because of the pre-built system they can also be shipped everywhere.
One box contains a big bathroom with space for washing machine, a big room for all building equipment like, heat exchanger or the domestic hot water tank. It also contains a portable kitchenette , which can be pulled into the existing building and when not needed pushed back into the box. This system saves space and warrants a strong plug n’plus concept. On the roof and the front the box has photovoltaic modules, all over. This and a solid reconstruction of the existing building, provides an energy-plus building, which generates more energy than it uses.
Through windows on the side of every box the natural light and air is guaranteed.
