Novo Mesto is a municipality in the Republic of Slovenia, founded in the Middle Ages with the German name of Rudolfswert in honour of its founder, the Archduke Rudolf IV of Austria. With close to 41,000 inhabitants and a very young population, Novo Mesto hosts four primary schools. One of them is the Bršljin OŠ primary school, built in 1971 and located in the local community of Bršljin.
The school’s classrooms hold close to 500 students and, although the building was rebuilt in 1991, it has recently undergone deep restoration work, responding to energy efficient and sustainable criteria. In addition to renovating the heating systems and replacing doors and windows by other, more efficient, newer ones, URSA materials were used for the of the façade and roofing insulation.
Thus, two materials from the GLASSWOOL range were chosen: URSA SF 34 and URSA SF 38. Both materials are formed by compressed mineral glass wool manufactured into rolls and can boast several quality and sustainability certificates.
