The goal of the project is the development of a guideline, which supports builders and planners or consultants in the organization and monitoring of inhabitant integration into the reorganization processes of multi-storey housing.
Integrated ecological and energy-oriented refurbishment of service buildings - development of quality criteria and tools within a pilot project (LCC-ECO)
Formulation of a procedure for the general refurbishment of service buildings and development of guidelines to support building owners and facility-managers in each stage of the refurbishment process in order to reach an integrated ecological and energy-oriented refurbishment.
Use of vacuum insulation paneels in the building construction
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.
The purpose of the work is to analyze the possibilities of the reduction of the energy demand of residential buildings by using telecommunication technologies such as mobile phones or Internet. Lowering room and water temperature during the absence of the inhabitants are of particular relevance.
Case study for the development of modules that allow for the revitalisation of existing structures without interruption of utilization (two studies, one realisation).
Strategies to open markets for passive houses in the east of Austria
The S-House is a two-storey straw-bale passive solar design. The building shell demonstrates the potential of straw-bale building and shows the whole spectrum of technical solutions for competitive components made of renewable resources.

Standardisation of testing criteria of acknowledged eco-labels in co-operation with the specialised trade for building products.
The construction, use, and disposal of buildings cause expenses, material flows, energy consumption, and emissions. With intelligent design, construction, management, and marketing, it is possible to reduce environmental burdens and costs, improve building quality, and increase building value.
Discussion of transfer of know how for ecological passivehouses, networking (national and international)
Product and system development for an inside thermal insulation construction of historical houses using magnesite bonded wood wool panels
The objective of this project is to examine the ability of magnesite bonded wood wool panels as an inside thermal insulation system, especially for houses with historical facades and to acquire starting points for further development of the products and components being used. Parallel to the data which will be calculated in a theoretical FEM-model, a field trial will be carried out to prove the influence on the inside room climate. In addition the sustainability of the system will be analysed.

integral reconstruction of the valuable cultural heritage "Freihof Sulz" to a communication- and action centre; Demonstration project for local culture and life quality, old building techniques, energy saving and ecological reconstruction."
New Standards for Old Houses. Sustainable Renovation Concepts for Houses on Estates Built Between the Wars and Post-War
The many housing estates of detached houses in Austria built in the times of economic crisis between the wars and post-war as part of publicly funded housing programmes are the starting point for this research project. The aim is to offer detailed guidelines with basic planning principles for the renovation of these housing estates with detached houses, aiming to reach the standard of a low-energy house or a passive house.
