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"
Participation in TASK 25 of the Implementing Agreements on Solar Heating and Cooling of the International Energy Agency (IEA)
Participation in TASK 25 "Solar Assited Air Conditioning of Buildings". Description and Analys of the state of the art, development of a simulation tool, build up and measurement of demonstration plants.
Factor 10 refurbishment of the General Secondary School II and Polytechnic School of Schwanenstadt (Upper Austria) with prefabricated wooden façade elements and with a comfort ventilation system.
Production of a comprehensive picture of tomorrow's building using research into future trends, the societal framework and political developments in the building sector.
Sunny research! Sustainable building design with high energy performance for a modern commercial building
Commercial buildings of basic to medium standard are hardly ever designed by a high quality of innovative building services engineering. In the project Sunny research! a sustainable building design with high energy performance was developed. The aim was to adapt the aspects of Renewable Energy, thermal comfort and wellness in work.
Conception and implementation of measures to spread selected results from the house of the future - program to the building industry, in particular to meet the target groups architects, builders and building developers.
Participation in the refurbishment process: Monitoring of concrete refurbishment projects and development of guidelines to optimise the planning, information and decision-making processes in the course of the refurbishment of residential properties
An investigation of the economic and ecological usefulness of coupling two CO2 neutral energy sources; solar installations for multi-family houses, producing standardised systems concepts and planning guidelines.
Practicable and passive house capable renovation systems for roof and wall units using high-performance thermal insulation
Renovation of a semidetached house using vacuum insulation panel in area of wall, roof and terrace. The very first time the mechanical mounting systems from VIP is used for special applications in the renovation of facades.
This project developed a novel "bio-pesticide"-formula by screening plant extracts and minerals for their strong repellant activity in order to protect sheepwool insulation from cloth moth infestation. It was investigated and examined by state-of-the-art-technology that the anti-moth-mixture extracted from plants and minerals, acts as a valid alternative to existing pest control agents.
Intelligent and green? User centred scenarios for information technology use in sustainable buildings
The project asked for the contribution of information technology use to the environmental performance of buildings - in terms of the vision of designers, practical use in existing projects and expectations of potential users.
Production of a 45 minutes film about living in the future.
Sustainable industrial concepts will assume a key role in the future. At the European level, the development of bio-based industries and the use of bio-based products will be promoted.
Arrangement of a passive house village for test living in the context of an innovative settlement expansion. Building up a large dimensioned passive house for consulting, training, exhibitions, research and distribution of passive house technology and know-how in the field of energy efficient and sustainable building.
Services for a comprehensive ecological renovation should comprise advice, design and construction as well as "green" building assessment and innovative financing models. Such services are developed together with companies in the construction business and tested in pilot projects.
Identifying and utilising potentials for higher densities and re-structuring in single-family housing areas requiring renewal
Demonstration project senior-housing concepts for new construction and renewal in Vienna, Menzelgasse
Acompagning the process of realisation and settlement of two projects of senior-housing (new construction and renewal), documentation and general assumptions.
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.
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.
Multi-storey social passive house construction with 39 units in Vienna, 14 Utendorfgasse under adherence to the international passive house standard and simultaneous extremely low construction costs.
