Testing and optimising post and beam straw bale constructions Testing the thermal insulation (specific heat conductance) and fire resistance of a construction (combustibility grading period), optimisation of building junction elements, development of a mobile testing lab for efficient and effective quality management
The first joint project of the four IG passive house organisations on behalf of the programme line "Building of Tomorrow" - an initiative of the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology - for the purpose of setting up a detailed network documentation of 80% of all passive houses in Austria.
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.
Multifunctional building in passive house standard - The building was designed as innovative high-quality passive house (wood construction) with the latest ecological building automation as a pilot project which is multipliable in a reduced respectively altered form in Europe as well as overseas.
Formulation of directives for the environmentally conscious choice of upgraded insulation and surface coatings for walls and floors, the basis for the awarding of the international eco-label natureplus
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.
IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) - Co-ordination, perception of the functions and spreading of the results of this international solar network
General rehabilitation of the General Secondary School II and the Poytechnic School at Schwanenstadt (Upper Austria) using prefabricated timber wall elements and a newly developed ventilation system optimised for schools
Within the framework of this project system-, structural- as well as building physical basis theories should be elaborated, which will serve as a basis for constructional and aesthetically attractive solutions for the production of facade integrated solar collectors without thermal separation. The recyclability of the materials used and resource efficiency play a central role when it comes to the development of constructional solutions.
Costs and benefits of daylight redirection systems: integrated assessment of daylight redirection systems and daylight-dependent control systems to reinforce daylight utilisation in existing buildings.
EKZ - EnergieKompetenzZentrum Großschönau: "Sonnenplatz - 1. European passive house village for test-living" phase of realisation
Integrative approach for the diffusion of the ecologic passive house: village of passive houses for test-living with an Energy Competence Centre on the basis of a sustainable concept for settlement development at Großschönau.
This research work was done to expand knowledge about outside sprayed-on cellulose insulation application focusing on mechanical and physical properties respectively.
SIBAT - Ensuring indoor air quality of buildings - inclusion of toxicological criteria in the assessment of building materials
Development of a pragmatic assessment scheme applicable to building practice for the impact of building products on human health
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.
