Pilot scheme for the restoration of the multi-storey residential buildings to a low energy building while people keep living in their flats with energy efficient, ecological and economical criteria.
A platform for the exchange of information to promote the better integration of ecological materials and renewable resources in the research programme "Building of Tomorrow"
Motives behind the wish of living in a certain way - here, especially in a detached house - explained through a life-style concept
Development of an consultancy model to promote ecologic and economic sustainable building solutions within the planning process. Analysis of the efficiency of guided (integral) meetings with architects, planners, and experts for different items.
Acceptance and improvement of low-energy-house components as a mutual learning process for users and producers
A social scientific investigation of acceptance and dissemination strategies for controlled ventilation systems with waste heat recovery and a joint heating system in low energy and passive houses.
Ways and means to increase the construction-volume by 500%, by means of standardised thermal restoration of old houses.
Development of practise-fit methods for intensification and rationalisation
of processes in the field of restoration of one-and two-family houses built
between 1945 and 1982 in Austria.
Inter-linked design as a strategy towards sustainable buildings - removing deficiencies of learning and of diffusion
The aim is to investigate the role of inter-linked design team organisation in the design of sustainable buildings and to formulate ready-to-use recommendations and guidelines for dissemination.
The study concentrates on describing the reasons behind the slow uptake of space-saving, densified forms of housing, and explains the dominant preference for detached single-family homes. However, it goes beyond simply describing the decisive motives for choices of housing. The study analyses the determining factors and the basic conditions under which these motives come or came into being. Based on this analysis, alternatives will be proposed and evaluated with regard to their effectiveness and feasibility.
In the on hand project an adsorber/desorber for a solar operated/district heating operated one-level adsorption chiller with water as cooling agent and silica gel as adsorbent agent will be planned for a low range of performance (2 to 50 kW refrigerating capacity). It will be implemented as a test-/pilot plant. Hence these two substances are an alternative to the HFCKW´s cooling agents that are used nowadays.
The aim of this study is to investigate the international research context of the programme "Building of Tomorrow" (with a focus on central, eastern and southern European countries) and to identify co-operation potentials.
Developing of a cost-efficient, energy-optimized window, built of wood and ecological insulating materials
Development of a sustainable windowconstruction using solar energy and ecogical materials.
Technologies to enhance comfort and minimise energy requirements for air conditioning in existing office and administrative buildings. Possibilities to reduce the cooling loads and strategies for the use of passive cooling systems.
Development and maintainance of the internet platform for building materials made of renewable resources at www.nawaro.com, which serves the central information-point for important stake holders - private house builders, architects, master-builders and experts in the field of building laws.
Criteria for Sustainable Urban Development - Tool for the Development and Assessment of urban brownfields
Based on experiences made with the projects "solarCity" and "Eco Building" resp. "Total Quality Assessment" the project will define qualitative and quantitative criteria for sustainable urban development considering Greater Linz as example.
Investigations on the Fundamental Suitability of Sprayed-on and Plaster-covered hygrothermic active Cellulose-Compact-Soundabsorber
Development of a new kind of spray-on and plastered noise absorber on the basis of cellulose from recycled paper. The absorber system preferably attenuates the low-frequency range, that can usually only be controlled with rather complex systems, and can also be used where conventional absorbers could cause problems due to impermissible water vapour condensation.
Development of a catalogue of criteria for senior-housing and detailed
implementation plans of a new building and/or of a reorganization project in
Vienna, located in the 16th district; Costs and comparison analysis between
"ordinary" New building and/or "ordinary" Reorganization
and senior-housing new buildings and/or renewal
The project aim is the clarification and PR-reevaluation of the thematic field "energy/energy saving" as a chance to study users and market forces close and factual to have a secure base for the development of new concepts, slogans and incentives in Austria.
