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.
Practical courses "Integrated and sustainable planning of buildings. Results of the Austrian program - Building of Tomorrow". For architects, civil engineers, environmental engineers and other building professionals within masters programmes.
Elaboration of high quality data about Passive Houses technology, to be used in training programs for building related professionals.
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.
Listening to the inhabitants of innovative buildings and using their satisfactory and unsatisfactory experiences as the basis for drawing up practice based criteria and recommendations for a quality, user-orientated building policy. The target groups are funding bodies, building contractors and town planners.
The ecology and economy of housing. An assessment system for the evaluation of the suitability of buildings and housing estates for the future.
The development of a new aluminium - sun collector, where the working- fluid completely run through the absorber- area, to reach a higher efficiency.
IEA SHC, Task Solar Thermal Plants with Advance Thermal Storage Technologies for Low Energy Buildings
Participation in TASK 32 "Storage concepts for solar buildings". Subtask leader of the subtask for heat storage based on phase change materials
This study analyses endeavours of several European cities of becoming Smart Cities. The Kyoto Protocol from 2002 as well as the participation in different energy initiatives play a crucial role. The comparison of the results from the different cities shows that Austria has to become more ambitioned and thorough in the realm of its Smart City strategies. The study delivers valuable contributions, examples and motivations.
Examples of innovative construction methods for new building and for renovation.
Experiences and attitudes of users as a basis for the development of sustainable housing concepts with high social acceptance
The aim of this project was to a) analyse current experiences of users of ecologically innovative residential buildings ("passive houses", solar houses, etc.) in Austria, b) to evaluate innovative housing concepts in focus groups, and c) to create a model for the continuous participation of users in the innovation process.
Log-fired furnace with low energy performance, optimised to be used in passive house constructions. The desired energy output, ranging from 1 kW to a max-peak of 3 kW, is achieved by an "energy storing unit" (energy-storage material covered by an insulation layer) in combination with valves to control the energy release.
Development of technical and economical solutions for high-density housing in timber construction under consideration of future regulatory developments (case study of a 5-story housing complex in Vienna).
Energy restoration of a historical residential building
Passive cooling concepts for office and administrative buildings using earth-to-air and earth-to-fluid heat exchangers
Analysis of existing passive cooling concepts, examination of various other passive cooling concepts and a comparison with conventional air conditioning systems. The elaboration of practice-oriented tools for the planning and implementation of the passive cooling concepts selected.
Development of contracting models for comprehensive renovation service packages.
A checklist considering priority, construction progress and actors is elaborated to serve a future-oriented selection of materials, energy carriers, design and construction within building sanitation, under a deliberate consideration of the involved actors from the construction branch
An internet platform with full information and detailed data about building materials made of renewable resources, which serves as the central information-point for different stake holders - from private house builders over architects and master-builders to experts in the field of building laws and regulations.
Potential of future development for industrially produced residential dwellings Enquiry on international tendencies in automated manufacturing and assessment of viable strategies for their implementation into the Austrian building sector
