lieBeKlima - quality assurance of cross-property greening for urban climate resilience in the neighbourhood development "Am Kempelenpark"

lieBeKlima aims to initiate the implementation of a cross-property and cross-system greening concept for the "Am Kempelenpark" neighbourhood development. This will be realized with innovative, identity-creating participation processes and a comprehensive quality assurance process. The focus lies on an interconnected consideration of integral greening concepts with higher-level water management and plus-energy concepts.

Short Description

Starting point / motivation

With the project "Am Kempelenpark", a new quarter for Favoriten is being created. A new, diverse urban quarter will follow on the approximately 48,000 m² former purely commercial site in Vienna's 10th district: Around 1,100 flats as well as a comprehensive green space concept, diverse commercial space and local amenities will be found "Am Kempelenpark". The balanced mix of high-quality and at the same time affordable living space will be completed by social infrastructure in the form of an all-day primary schools and a kindergarten.

This neighbourhood development is to be carried out over the next few years in a cross-building and cross-theme manner, with comprehensive concepts planned for the areas of open and green space, mobility and energy supply and distribution.

Contents and goals

The exploratory project lieBeKlima aims to initiate the implementation of a cross-property and cross-system greening concept for the "Am Kempelenpark" neighbourhood and to bring it to reality with innovative, identity-creating participation processes among the developers and a comprehensive quality assurance process.

Methods

In this process, concrete and measurable quality goals are defined with the developers for the quality framework provided by the neighbourhood developer on the topics of greening, water management and energy supply, and broken down to building site level, or the necessary infrastructure is divided among the properties.

The close interrelationships between infrastructural green space, rainwater and greywater management and the local energy concept are worked out and cast into requirements for the planning of each building site. A quality assurance process for planning, construction and operation is to ensure that the jointly set goals are also realised.

The necessary monitoring is defined for this process. With this kind of participatory coordination between the developers even before the actual planning begins, with the networking of the greening, water and energy systems, as well as the interlocking of the infrastructure of the general neighbourhood with that of the properties, lieBeKlima is breaking new ground in integral planning.

These topics are usually planned separately from each other; interaction between the building site, neighbouring property and higher-level area takes place - if at all - only through supply lines.

Expected results

The results on the quality assurance process for planning, construction and operation can serve the new specifications of the wohnfonds as a wealth of experience for further processes, as there is no experience on this yet.

This should result in the greatest possible cost-benefit optimisation for the developers and users, as economic potential is also made possible by leveraging synergies. It is important not to lose sight of the big picture. The property boundaries between the properties should not be "noticeable".

lieBeKLima is intended to show that a climate-resilient city with economically justifiable costs is possible through early, partnership-based coordination.
