BauZ! 2016 Congress - Call for Papers

5. May 2015

"New stuff from old buildings! – rehabilitation, conversion, recycling" is the motto of the Vienna Congress on Sustainable Building BauZ! 2016. The congress will be held from 28th to 30th January 2016 as part of the Building & Energy Fair in Vienna.

The BauZ! Congress 2016 addresses the various rehabilitation options as well as the future use of existing buildings. A building has reached the end of its present utilisation phase - because it is no longer needed the way it used to be, because it is no longer technically sound or because it is outdated. What happens next?

Rehabilitation is often confined to repair or maintenance. Yet more often than not, rehabilitation involves an adjustment to state-of-the-art technology or to the requirements that a new type of utilisation entails. Utilisation and conversion of buildings (e.g. a tobacco factory becomes a university) and utilisation requirements (key word: neutrality) will be additional focal points of the congress.

IBO is calling for contributions and best-practice examples related to rehabilitating and utilising existing buildings; Further information is available here

Contributions (talks/workshop proposals) should be submitted by 24th June 2015 to the organiser, IBO – Österreichisches Institut für Bauen und Ökologie GmbH:
