"Building of Tomorrow" funded research reports dealing with building renovation will be analysed for solutions of construction details. This information will be supplemented with structural-physical descriptions, ecological ratings and technical discussions. All the information will be collected and systematically presented in a catalogue of building details for renovation.
The goal was to design, offer, evaluate and refine a practical training, adapted to the current development. Aim of the courses is to have well-trained engineers and technicians with practical and theoretical knowledge in the field of thermal renovation of buildings.
The key project "Stadtumbau Lehen" ("urban consolidation Lehen") coordinates several projects at the urban district of Lehen, with the purpose of the raise in energy efficiency and safekeeping of a sustainable development. Four builder (ten teams of architects), two scientifically institutions, the town of Salzburg and two attended departments of the land are working together.
Urban consolidation Lehen - Subproject 8a: project management - documentation - dissemination and quality assurance
The project coordinates several projects in the urban quarter Lehen to ensure increase of energy efficiency and sustainable development. This subproject contains the coordination of the partners and projects in order to reach defined standards of quality, coordination and cooperation with the program "Building of Tomorrow" and other flagship projects as well as the documentation of results.
Knowledge consolidation of the exploratory project VIG_SYS_RENO; This project focused on the application of vacuum glass in existing casement windows for purposes of energetic performance improvement of buildings. Expected results include new insights about and a guideline for the application and utilization of vacuum glass products in existing window systems.
Whiscers is a system for installing internal wall insulation with minimal mess, whilst the resident remains in the property. It involves measuring the walls in the property using a laser device that enables fast and highly accurate measurement. Information is then sent electronically to a computer controlled off-site cutting machine that is rapid, precise and mess-free.
Development of an internet-based tool for passive house retrofit für - target group social housing companies. Actualization of tool after test and evaluation in case-studies. dissemination activities in austria.
e80^3-Buildings - "reconstruction concepts towards energy plus house standard with prefabricated active roof and facade elements, integrated home automation and network integration"
The project aims for highly-efficient renovation of existing buildings and settlements in urban areas. The main focus are buildings that were built between 1950 and 1980.
Goal of this subproject was to select the building with the highest potential within a building-portfolio. Therefore a criteria catalogue was developed, which is generally applicable.
Based on the selection of suitable demonstration projects in Subproject 1 an innovative concept for passive and active building envelopes and energy supply of so called "Plus Energy Buildings" (renovation) has been developed.
Alongside the realisation of the plus energy building in Kapfenberg, a demonstration project is scheduled to be created that accomplishes an economically viable and technically innovative solution for the future.
The content of subproject 5 was the analysis of energy- as well as building-biology-related issues for the evaluation and quality management of the demo-project in Kapfenberg, which involves a high-quality refurbishment to a plus energy house within the program "Haus der Zukunft - Building of Tomorrow". Within this process the user acceptance before, during and after the renovation was elevated and this will be processed for upcoming projects. The environmental quality of the building regarding the choice of materials and measures during the construction phase and the subsequent use of the building was assessed with the help of the TQB-planning and evaluation tool.
plusFacades - International know-how- and knowledge transfer of "intelligent Facade systems" for Austrian players and key personnel
The project proceeds from the idea that prefabricated intelligent facade systems represent a promising technology for the energy efficient refurbishment of buildings. A goal is to process the present international state-of-the-art and the existing know-how to this topic for Austrian experts.
