The research project examined different forms of communal living of elderly people and contributes to the development of new, common forms of living for the elderly. Questions concerning demographic change and economic as well as ecologic challenges of our time had been dealt with.
Structural extra costs of passive houses decide whether these will become accepted at the market. Within the project the costs of several "Building of tomorrow" passive houses were compared. The results enable estimations for future passive house projects.
The focal points of the largest urban development project in Europe are the topics public space and microclimate as well as cross-building energy supply. Landmark projects will be implemented in the areas residential buildings, office/industry buildings and mobility.
The Overall Project Management of the "Leitprojekt" includes the handling and supervision of the sub-projects, the reporting to the programme management and additionally the preparation and distribution of relevant results. Beyond that the project management is responsible to highlight possible synergies within other projects and to - if necessary - include these within the next steps.
The objective of the project BONSEI! is the support of an energy efficient and socially acceptable densification of privately owned residential buildings in urban space and the development of a methodological basis for resource efficient urban areas. The results are used for the conception of an innovative service in order to provide a neutral consulting regarding private densification plans.
Booklet issued by Building of Tomorrow with about 20 practical passive house thermal bridges free connection details for large-volume residential buildings
In particular, for buildings with very low energy consumption on heating the influence of heat bridges have a special value. Since in passive house construction a largely heat bridge free execution is required, the most frequent and significant heat bridges are collected in a booklet.
At the development "residential Passive House Utendorfgasse" were reached very low building costs. Would there be different building costs by using ecological materials and technologies? There will be calculated additional and reduced costs by using the ecological building-catalogue and internal characteristic values of projects that are similar in design.
Conversion of an attic of a typical building from the period about 1900 to a passive attic with photovoltaic system and renovation of the existing building equipment. The aim is to keep the additional construction costs under 10 %, to avoid overheating in summer and to make possible a reproduction for the large amount of buildings from the same period.
Climate neutral buildings from the period of promoterism - ways, potentials and possibilities of implementation
The focus was on the goal-oriented and economic options, in order to achieve a CO2-neutral energy supply and hermetically sealed building envelope as well as to show high energy efficiency when using. On the other hand building protection regulations and the quality in use are to be considered.
Evaluation of the quality and efficiency of state-of-the-art installed solar combisystems, potentials for improvements and measures to increase the quality
Comfort ventilation plus+: First time development of high efficient comfort ventilation systems that enable demand-control of room-wise airflow for new buildings and refurbishment
First time development of innovative components for comfort ventilation systems used in new buildings and renovation that enable demand-control of air flow room-wise. The outcome is a considerable reduction of the primary energy balance and a sustainable solution of problems concerning the discrepance between satisfying humidity and very good indoor air quality within the heating period.
A competition for the builders of prefabricated houses provided new design-types of attached houses. The results have been awarded and published to encourage the participants to enter this segment of the market.
Cooperative Living Volkersdorf (KooWo - Volkersdorf) - sufficiency, space and energy efficiency in the quarter
The jointly planned demonstration project "KooWo" in Volkersdorf aims at reaching sufficiency as well as energy and CO2 reductions in a holistic way. System boundaries are shifted in order not to look only at energy consumption in buildings, relating to unit of floor space, but to consider all use of resources and relating it to persons and social communities.
Development of a strategy for industrialized serial production of ecological passive houses made out of renewable resources
Development of a strategy for industrialized seria. production of ecological passive solar houses made out of building materials based on renewable resources as foundation for the dissemination of sustainable solutions for the production of prefabricated houses and of single houses.
Development of affordable building equipment and services for future "Energy Plus houses" (Plus-Hybrid)
"Plus-Hybrid" integrates knowledge and experience from current activities and complement them by adopting a holistic approach, considering the intelligent interconnection of components as well as managing the planned efforts and human resources in time. The goal of this project was to develop affordable building equipment and services for future "Energy Plus houses".
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.
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.
Ecological exemplary reconstruction of the "Haidenhof"-building, Bad Ischl, Upper Austria. Building refurbishment with respect to monumental protection and newest passive house technologies. Reorganisation of the former residential building to an academy of arts and culture.
The multifunctional neighbourhood "+ERS - Plus Energy Network Reininghaus Süd" was realized within the urban planning area of Graz-Reininghaus. The project aims to optimize the energy concept of the single buildings as well as of the building cluster in order to achieve a plus-energy standard within the residential neighbourhood.
