In building technology, Austrian companies also provide in the area of heating and ventilation new developments such as solar systems or control systems for local and district heating for private households alongside the traditional applications in the gas and sanitation area.
For industrial companies, planning and production monitoring of customised plant concepts are offered that increase the technical availability and operating efficiency and reduce costs.
In addition to the low-energy new build, the refurbishment requirements of building shells and building technology as well as portfolio optimisation will play a fundamental role in future. Technological innovations in building materials, products and machines are to minimise the energy requirements of the buildings.
Austrian trends in interior fit-out are, for instance, wooden flooring and high-quality building materials, low-pollutant building materials and energy-efficient solutions.
Particularly in interior and dry fit-out, the sector is characterised by many SMEs. Austrian providers stand for quality, durability, sustainable solutions and compliance with deadlines. Customers in Austria rely on "their" regional skilled tradesmen.
In addition to many years of experience, innovative solutions are also among the strengths of the Austrian companies, from the re-interpretation of parquet flooring to intelligent building networking and system control via touch panel or mobile phone to an ISO-certified environmental management system.
Smart Home and assistance systems
Energy efficiency is also to be achieved through the optimisation of building technology systems. That is important with rising energy prices and in order to meet climate targets. Smart Home solutions will play a decisive role here in future.
As a result of the demographic change, the need for Ambient Assisted Living solutions is also increasing. Intelligent technical assistance systems contribute to a self-determined life in one's own home well into advanced old age.
That is why processes in buildings will increasingly be monitored in future by autonomous systems, wireless sensor networks and smart solutions. Customers or service providers use mobile devices in order to regulate processes.
Example of a BUS
A modern bus system can support control processes and forward information in the building technology. The technology is suitable for single-family dwellings and for public buildings like schools and administrative buildings.
The system can control the lighting, operate the room temperature and the blinds in programmed form, control the garage door, activate movement detectors or ensure the smoke alarm.With the aid of a flexible bus system, the various appliances and systems communicate with one another and exchange information. Particularly interesting for older people: biosensors measure blood pressure and blood glucose or remind the person to take medication. For an emergency, a direct link to doctors or nursing staff is possible.
