With ambitious climate goals set for the future, energy-flexible buildings and estates will play an increasingly important role. This also applies to innovative, sustainable and economic system solutions for old buildings using prefabricated concepts.
The main focus areas of the department Building and Retrofit (BaR) are developing products, structural components and systems as well as elaborating comprehensive energy concepts for new buildings and retrofit, while applying a comprehensive design approach.
The application of dynamic simulation programmes helps optimise the behaviour of a building in terms of comfort, sustainability and ecological as well as economic aspects. It also provides important contributions for research and economy.
