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.

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.

Total Quality Design and Assessment of buildings as a strategy to increase the level of know-how with regard to the issue of "sustainable buildings".

Total Quality Design and Assessment is an instrument to increase the demand for high quality buildings; "high quality" in terms of improved comfort as well as decrease in negative environmental impact, at affordable costs. Application of TQ design targets requires additional and new knowledge, thus increasing the level of know-how with regard to the issue of "sustainable buildings".

Basic research on fixing elements: drawing up universal design guidelines for high resilience mechanical jointing techniques for insulation products

The objective of this project is to explore mechanical insulant-fixing connections. Unconventional but concrete fixing techniques are the focus of the investigation. The use of insulants as "lost" casing will also be studied in depth.

Hygrothermal behaviour of double-skin facades in solar irradiation - theory evaluation by means of on-location measurements

Detailed clarification of the base parameters of thermodynamic simulation calculations by means of on-location measurements on the five-storey double-skin facade of the Federal Institute of Social Education in Baden bei Wien

Haus der Zukunft

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.

Haus der Zukunft

An analysis of the factors supporting and hindering the market penetration of innovative residential buildings

An empirical analysis of the most important factors in supporting or hindering the market diffusion of selected technologies or different innovative residential concepts.

Haus der Zukunft

Investigation into control systems for low emission, high efficiency biomass furnaces for heating residential and office buildings.

Through optimising the control systems of biomass heating systems, energy wastage and pollutant emissions can be reduced considerably. The goal of the project is first to analyse the possible savings that can be made in these areas, using the heat demand scenarios of different "Buildings of Tomorrow". The results of this analysis will lead to the development of an optimised control system which will be tested on a biomass heating system.

Haus der Zukunft

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.

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.
