"Gasthermenersatz" - Modular heat pump with environmentally friendly refrigerant to replace natural gas-based heating systems in large-scale residential buildings

The project "Gasthermenersatz" aims at developing, manufacturing, and testing a functional prototype of a decentralized, sound-optimized heat pump solution with refrigerant circuit modules connected in series or parallel. This renewable technology is well-suited to replace existing natural gas-based heating systems in large-scale residential buildings and to pave the way to carbon-neutral cities.

6D BIM-Terminal: Missing Link for the development of CO2 neutral buildings

The present project aims to close the gap between specialist consultants and Building Information Modeling (BIM) applications. For that, relevant data for cost estimation, scheduling construction planning and management or sustainable building operation and facility management, shall be added automatically to BIM elements and imported into the respective specialist planning software. This data exchange shall be carried out using IFC interface according to ÖNORM A6241-2 and the properties of the ASI properties server via a central platform, the "6D BIM-Terminal".

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.
