AC/DC Office Buildings - Implementation of Electricity Networks with Alternating and Direct Current in Office Buildings - Feasibility and Energy Efficiency Potentials

Based on a literature and technology review this projects aimed to document and demonstrate already available and reasonable concepts for the implementation of electricity networks with alternating and direct current in modern office buildings. Focus of the study was to assess the feasibility in general and the energy efficiency potential in particular but it also documents necessary technical equipment and expected advantages and disadvantages. Additionally, important research questions for energy supply, energy distribution and application of direct current technologies were formulated.

AGelFa - Development of surface structurable final-coating stucco systems on high-performance heat-insulating aerogel insulation plaster for historic building facades.

High-performance insulating plaster systems represent an important option toward improving the thermal insulation of historic buildings without changing their physical appearance. The high-performance aerogel insulation plaster has recently become available for deployment. In this context, the present will explore final stucco systems suitable for building with structured surfaces.

An innovative approach for facades with optimised noise protection and natural ventilation

The aim of this project was to advance the state of the art in the engineering of double-leaf building facades that facilitate natural ventilation while providing sufficient sound insulation. Realization of natural (window) ventilation is in some instances difficult due to a number of factors. Thereby, noise pollution (especially traffic noise) plays an important role. To address these issues, the project explored innovative solutions in terms of facade constructions for concurrent natural ventilation and noise control.

aspern Vienna´s Urban Lakeside - subproject 5: Monitoring of Energy Consumption in Demonstration Buildings in Seestadt Aspern

Goal of the project is to develop a monitoring tool that allows to predict the expectable (final) quality of the residential buildings based on decisions made during the planning and construction phase. For this purpose, the current certification tool for the determination of "TQB-points" will be equipped with "interim" certifications, which shall allow the land developer to carry out a quality monitoring parallel to the construction phase. The tool will be tested with the data obtained from selected construction projects during the first residential development phase in seestadt aspern.
