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.
Investigations on the fundamental suitability of sprayed-on and plaster-covered cellulose insulation for thermal insulation of buildings.
Façade and Open Space Modernization with Standard Building Components in Housing of the Fifties und Sixties.
Developing the passive house standard from pilot projects to a common standard in housing projects with an optimum of comfort. Comprehensive transfer initiative of the passive house standard by fairs, exhibitions and lobbying activities in communities.
Community centre with multi-functional usage (cultural events, library, post office, bakery, grocery, daycare, private apartments, meeting point of the generations); role model for consistent implementation of ecological criteria in public tendering; plausible evidence of cost efficiency
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).
