Transfer conference "Alpine hut of Tomorrow" pilot project "Schiestlhaus"

The aim of the event was an open in-depth discussion with and for experts of the alpine clubs in order to evaluate the pilot project "Schiestlhaus" and to identify usable approaches for sustainable buildings in the alpine area.

Short Description

Status

completed

Summary

Starting point/Motivation

The topic of building in the alpine area should nowadays take into account the three pillars of sustainability (environment - economy - social). The new construction of the "Schiestlhaus" can be considered as a pilot and demonstration project for the combination of new sustainable technologies and an intelligent room concept under extreme alpine conditions.

Contents and Objectives

The aim of the event is an open in-depth discussion with and for experts of the alpine clubs in order to evaluate the pilot project "Schiestlhaus" and to identify usable approaches for sustainable buildings in the alpine area. By an on-location analysis of the pilot project "Schiestlhaus" a gain of consolidated findings on the issue of energy efficient building in alpine areas is carried out. The conclusions can be communicated to decision-makers.

Methods

  • Preparation of the available project data, thematically structured in planning-building-operation
  • Presentation of structured project data to experts panel on-site in Schiestlhaus
  • Discussion and evaluation of presented solutions on-site
  • Identification of solutions with great potential for sustainable buildings of alpine huts

Results

Experts will evaluate the solutions of the pilot project "Schiestlhaus" that can be considered as valuable for comparable building projects

Documentation: the structured data and results of the event will be compiled and presented to the interested public, interested in and concerned by sustainable building in alpine areas

The discussion with the experts of the alpine institution showed a great awareness and know how for sustainable building strategies. They appreciate the functional design and the high performing building shell in terms of broader dissemination. The ventilation system is seen as a substantial improvement of indoor comfort but it is critical in terms of technical investment and  vulnerability to extreme wind conditions. In the meantime the basic energy providing system including rapeoil combined heat-electric plant and photovoltaic cells are standard for most buildings in high alpine altitudes.

Prospects / Suggestions for future research

The mainstream of modern alpine lodge construction prefers highly effective solutions, including low tec and low maintainance and concurrently providing high environmental friendlyness, high operational safety and high indoor comfort. In particular the ventilation system requires innovations in regard to low tec investment and high adaptivity to extreme alpine weather conditions.
