BauZ! 2015 – Vienna Congress on Sustainable Building

2 December 2014

The international BauZ! 2015 congress will focus on practical questions about buildings in use.

“How does energy-efficient, ecologically responsible construction relate to real-life building occupancy? Are we still on the right track?” The international congress BauZ! 2015 will address these and other practical questions related to buildings in use from 12 to 13 February 2015 in the framework of the Vienna Bauen & Energie trade fair.

Topics in focus:

  • Building services: Basements and lofts crammed with building services equipment have become a common feature of larger new or renovated buildings. Is there a simpler solution? How much is enough?
  • Monitoring of buildings – energy efficiency – comfort: How do automated building controls for lighting, shade, ventilation, heating and cooling affect the comfort of occupants?
  • Affordability – for developers, occupants and subsidy providers: There are many reasons for the rise in housing costs. This politically sensitive topic is often used to water down the technical standards which increase investment costs.

The two-day conference will offer talks, a podium discussion, workshops on special topics, business speed dating and an evening reception.

The BauZ! congress 2015 will end on Saturday 14 February 2015 with excursions to important new buildings and urban developments in the Vienna region.
