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).
Strategies to open markets for passive houses in the east of Austria
The S-House is a two-storey straw-bale passive solar design. The building shell demonstrates the potential of straw-bale building and shows the whole spectrum of technical solutions for competitive components made of renewable resources.
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"
Motives behind the wish of living in a certain way - here, especially in a detached house - explained through a life-style concept
Development of an consultancy model to promote ecologic and economic sustainable building solutions within the planning process. Analysis of the efficiency of guided (integral) meetings with architects, planners, and experts for different items.
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.
Ways and means to increase the construction-volume by 500%, by means of standardised thermal restoration of old houses.
Development of practise-fit methods for intensification and rationalisation of processes in the field of restoration of one-and two-family houses built between 1945 and 1982 in Austria.
An integrated (overall) concept for an ecological alpine refuge hut based on solar energy
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.
The study concentrates on describing the reasons behind the slow uptake of space-saving, densified forms of housing, and explains the dominant preference for detached single-family homes. However, it goes beyond simply describing the decisive motives for choices of housing. The study analyses the determining factors and the basic conditions under which these motives come or came into being. Based on this analysis, alternatives will be proposed and evaluated with regard to their effectiveness and feasibility.
In the on hand project an adsorber/desorber for a solar operated/district heating operated one-level adsorption chiller with water as cooling agent and silica gel as adsorbent agent will be planned for a low range of performance (2 to 50 kW refrigerating capacity). It will be implemented as a test-/pilot plant. Hence these two substances are an alternative to the HFCKW´s cooling agents that are used nowadays.
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.
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.
