Results of the latest research about thermal use of solar energy in multi-storey housing, prepared for builders and planners
The relevant Know-How in the fields of "sustainable building and energy supply" will be gathered. The information will be transferred to the relevant target groups (building promoters, architects, planners, customers). This will be done during workshops, planning assistance and a catalogue of quality criteria. The focus lies on solar thermal systems for multiple-family houses.
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.
Developing of a cost-efficient, energy-optimized window, built of wood and ecological insulating materials
Development of a sustainable windowconstruction using solar energy and ecogical materials.
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.
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.
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.
Inter-linked design as a strategy towards sustainable buildings - removing deficiencies of learning and of diffusion
The aim is to investigate the role of inter-linked design team organisation in the design of sustainable buildings and to formulate ready-to-use recommendations and guidelines for dissemination.
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
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.
Development of a pragmatic assessment scheme applicable to building practice for the impact of building products on human health
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
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.
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.
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
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.
The aim of this study is to investigate the international research context of the programme "Building of Tomorrow" (with a focus on central, eastern and southern European countries) and to identify co-operation potentials.
High-quality refurbishment - Designing quality standards for the refurbishment of municipal buildings
Designing quality standards for ecological refurbishment (based on E. Panzhauser's proposals, 2001); applying them to characteristic types of buildings systematically selected in diverse municipalities; the achieved results shall serve as good practice examples for future refurbishment and as basis of discussion on subsidy regulations.
CIT City in Transition - A Model for Comprehensive Renewal Processes to Increase the Value of Urban Areas
By means of pilot projects in two urban areas comprehensive goals and criteria, assessment approaches and a code of practice for sustainable urban renewal are elaborated jointly with decision makers and experts in urban development.
