Sustainable and energy efficient building

Designing modern buildings for the benefit of people and the environment means:

  • infrastructure without compromising on environmental protection,
  • modern buildings with innovative designs,
  • revitalisation and renovation of existing buildings,
  • energy efficient buildings with a focus on sustainable building materials and
  • accessible construction.

The Institute, which is part of the Department of Building, Energy & Society, sets out to tackle these challenges in the fields of

  • socio-ecological urban and regional development,
  • lifecycle-based building design and
  • glass construction
Collaboration opportunities
  • Collaboration with partners in research contracts or funded research projects
  • Exploration of research questions as part of Bachelor’s and Master’s theses

“We apply our specialist expertise to train our students in integrated construction following an interdisciplinary approach and provide them with the latest expertise they need to enter the world of work.”
