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.
The documentary film for ORF/ 3sat and Bayern alpha-TV presents the concept of the passive house. Fascinating pioneer projects of the Austrian Program on Technologies for Sustainable Development, Sub-Program "Building of Tomorrow", have been filmed over several months. The importance of taking care of ecology and sustainability when constructing houses is demonstrated to a large audience.
Development of a building board consisting of a wood fibre board, coated with clay-plaster reinforced by natural plant-fibres (BioFaserLehm) for reinforcing planking of timber-constructions and also for statical not stressed inner wall surfaces.
Contemporary sustainable solutions for residential building will be optimised and realized by interdisciplinary planning orientated to the life-cycle services supporting the quality of life and intelligent use of information and communication technologies.
Evaluation of the planning and building processes of multi-storey wooden construction residential and office buildings, and the development of measures to optimise these processes.
An analysis of the building and planning processes of multi-storey wooden construction residential and office buildings, taking into consideration the opinions of the professionals involved (planners, building contractors, building executives), then the development, documentation and distribution of ways to optimise these processes, using "Info-Tool" software.
Investigation of factors which support and hinder acceptance: Technical, legal/political and organisational levels considered, focus on innovative solutions with high market potential, thematic focal areas: straw bale building, surface treatment, acoustic and thermal insulation
Testing and optimising post and beam straw bale constructions Testing the thermal insulation (specific heat conductance) and fire resistance of a construction (combustibility grading period), optimisation of building junction elements, development of a mobile testing lab for efficient and effective quality management
The first joint project of the four IG passive house organisations on behalf of the programme line "Building of Tomorrow" - an initiative of the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology - for the purpose of setting up a detailed network documentation of 80% of all passive houses in Austria.
The very first reconstruction in Austria of a one-unit house to passive house standard (Model project in Pettenbach/Upper Austria)
The main objective is the unprecedented reconstruction of older one-unit buildings to the standards of passive houses. The reconstruction estates are of the numerous older one-unit houses in Austria. The reconstruction will considerably enhance the convenience of living quarters in the old houses.
Multifunctional building in passive house standard - The building was designed as innovative high-quality passive house (wood construction) with the latest ecological building automation as a pilot project which is multipliable in a reduced respectively altered form in Europe as well as overseas.
Formulation of directives for the environmentally conscious choice of upgraded insulation and surface coatings for walls and floors, the basis for the awarding of the international eco-label natureplus
e3building - ecology, economy, efficiency: An International Network for the Entire Building Industry
Embedded in the EUREKA initiative PREPARE e3building serves as a network for the know-how exchange between building and construction industry, researchers and the funding programme on a national as well as an international level.
IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) - Co-ordination, perception of the functions and spreading of the results of this international solar network
General rehabilitation of the General Secondary School II and the Poytechnic School at Schwanenstadt (Upper Austria) using prefabricated timber wall elements and a newly developed ventilation system optimised for schools
Within the framework of this project system-, structural- as well as building physical basis theories should be elaborated, which will serve as a basis for constructional and aesthetically attractive solutions for the production of facade integrated solar collectors without thermal separation. The recyclability of the materials used and resource efficiency play a central role when it comes to the development of constructional solutions.
Costs and benefits of daylight redirection systems: integrated assessment of daylight redirection systems and daylight-dependent control systems to reinforce daylight utilisation in existing buildings.
EKZ - EnergieKompetenzZentrum Großschönau: "Sonnenplatz - 1. European passive house village for test-living" phase of realisation
Integrative approach for the diffusion of the ecologic passive house: village of passive houses for test-living with an Energy Competence Centre on the basis of a sustainable concept for settlement development at Großschönau.
This research work was done to expand knowledge about outside sprayed-on cellulose insulation application focusing on mechanical and physical properties respectively.
SIBAT - Ensuring indoor air quality of buildings - inclusion of toxicological criteria in the assessment of building materials
Development of a pragmatic assessment scheme applicable to building practice for the impact of building products on human health
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.
