Basic research on the load bearing capacity and high thermal insulation properties of foam glass granulate
The aim of the scientific investigations is to find the characteristic parameters of foam glass granulate applied as load transfer layer and thermal insulation, to provide the base for the application of a multi functional and economical insulation material at the interface between building and ground for buildings of the future.
baubehoerde.at - Development of a Vision 2030 for a Digital Building Authority and Recommendations for Action in Austria
In Austria, planning permission applications are submitted and managed largely manually. The aims of the baubehoerde.at project are to evaluate the potential and limitations of digitizing building approval processes and to create a Vision 2030 strategy for a digital building authority.
By the foundation of the baubook GmbH in 2008 the two databases of building products "öbox" and "ixbau.at" have been merged. The new database baubook was expanded. Essential functions (central product declaration, decentral quality management) and fields of products were added.
Beacon of innovation gugler cross media, ecoeffective zero energy cross media enterprise featuring zero-emission, zero energy, zero waste
The aim of the flagship project is a new dimension of sustainability (cradle to cradle, ecoeffective zero energy enterprise) for business operation and building, which means zero emission, zero energy, zero waste. This will be shown on the basis of a beacon of innovation: Gugler GmbH, a modern sustainable media services enterprise (traditional print and new media) will extend their current building from about 2100 square meters and about 90 employees to about 5,000 square meters.
This project analyzed the integration of decentralized heat sources into domestic heat grids technically, but also economically.
The subproject 10 is part of the flagship project BIGMODERN. It is based on the results of subproject SP 7 in which a monitoring concept has been developed. This concept is now implemented through monitoring of different aspects occurring during the first two years of operation of both BIGMODERN demonstration buildings.
The project is part of the flagship project BIGMODERN. It aims at disseminating all relevant results of BIGMODERN in a comprehensive and targeted way. It addresses different target groups, such as decision makers inside the BIG Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft, various users of federal buildings and other real estate companies nationally and internationally.
In the frame of this subproject being part of the flagship project BIGMODERN, a decision matrix as well as a handbook for planning, including feasibility analysis and a collection of information, serving as decision guidance for planning and implementation of sustainable building refurbishment, is being developed. In this way, the risk for planners and builders of the usage of new sustainable technologies shall be minimised.
Creation of technical and organisational preconditions for constructors to integrate life-cycle cost analysis (LCCA) already into the planning process. Furthermore, the findings will be applied within the two demonstration projects of the flagship project BIGMODERN (SP2 and SP3). The publication of fundamental results makes conceptive basics and LCCA-results available for all stakeholders in the real estate industry.
The application of innovative technologies means additional planning and coordination effort which usually cannot be incorporated into the conventional planning processes of the BIG. To overcome these barriers for the application of innovative technologies, the sub project at hand aims at preparing information, feasibility studies, planning records, experiences and practical examples in a way, that they can be implemented directly into the planning process.
BIGMODERN - Subproject 6: Incentives to enforce energy efficiency and sustainability in modernizations of BIG-buildings
Development of approaches, which lead to general conditions for complete refurbishments in BIG-buildings, which support high standards regarding energy efficiency and sustainability. This will ensure high-quality modernizations for BIG's real estate.
In the frame of the flagship project BIGMODERN the "Amtshaus Bruck an der Mur" had been renovated according to above-average quality standards concerning energy efficiency and sustainability while complying with an industrial management point of view.
BIGMODERN - Sustainable refurbishment standards of federal buildings constructed between 1950 and 1980
The project aims at developing sustainability and climate protection criteria for the refurbishment of federal buildings of the postwar period. These criteria will be tested for their practical suitability within the framework of demonstration projects. Subsequently, these criteria will be defined as fundamental guiding principles in the planning and building processes for all future BIG retrofit projects.
BIGMODERN Subproject 3: Demonstration building University Innsbruck - Main building of the Faculty for Technical Sciences - Planning process
Demonstration of feasibility of renovation of an official building in high thermal and energetical quality and consideration of further sustainable criteria.
Development of a pattern for comprehensive documentation of the project results. The concepts contain amongst others monitoring of energy consumption, resources, costs, functionality and comfort, etc.
BIM4BEMS explores use cases that represent the usage of building information models (BIM) in combination with building energy management systems (BEMS) during operation. This enables the interaction between BIM and building management systems (BMS) which improves the analysis and visualization of inefficiencies in facilities.
Building Information Modelling supported compilation of a Material Building Pass; as a qualitative and quantitative documentation of the material composition of, and the material distribution within, a building structure. This project is a central milestone towards standardized, BIM-generated building material passes.
The objective of this research project is to develop information requirements and process descriptions for the application of BIM models related to building services in facility management and to demonstrate the lifecycle-oriented use of these models in an open BIM environment. For this purpose, software solutions for the use of IFC in the open-source platform SIMULTAN and building management software are developed and evaluated on the basis of four typical use cases.
BIMSavesEnergy - BIM-based planning-methods for the assurance of energy-efficiency in the building process
The Building Information Model (BIM) brings about fundamental changes in the planning and construction of buildings, as the common base makes it possible to work closely together across disciplines in construction projects. In this project, BIM-based planning methods are developed, which make the influence of planning decisions on energy efficiency quantifiable and controllable in the management process.
Biomimetic potentials - Interdisciplinary identification and preparation of innovative biological inspired key technologies for "Plus-energy buildings of the future"
Experts from various branches of industry and research as well as bionics representatives worked out innovative ideas regarding "Key technologies for Plus-Energy-Buildings". The results provide a collection of emergent bionic research potential for the implementation of innovative research in the Austrian building sector.
