Non-residential buildings with special requirements
Friday, 3 May 2019, 2:20 pm, Großer Saal (ground floor), simultaneous translation into English
Many people think that only small single family homes can be built to the Passive House standard, but as practitioners know, any building can be realised as a Passive House. In this session the presenters will explore some of the new types of buildings that have been realised to the Passive House standard over the past few years. In Germany a number of indoor swimming and leisure centres have been constructed to the Passive House standard and this has resulted in significant lifetime operational cost savings. The details of these projects and the new Passive House guidelines for these centres will be discussed in this session.
Later in 2019 the very first Passive House hospital will be completed in Frankfurt, Germany and the details of this ground breaking project will be presented to session attendees. With OECD nations facing an ageing population, energy efficient buildings such as Hospital Frankfurt-Höchst, as well as other medical and aged-care facilities, will be increasingly important to the economic future of these nations. A multi-function community centre / school / child care centre will also be presented in this session and show how Passive House buildings are the perfect solution to facilities that require superior indoor comfort and air quality.
|Building a hospital to the Passive House Standard is a special challenge. Why would a financier/shareholder opt for such a pilot project? The definition of the framework parameters was jointly developed in the planning phase, during dialogue regarding the conflicting areas of "energy efficiency theory and economic feasibility". How does one develop a new standard? The experiences and previous tasks of all those involved are presented and supported with practical examples. In this presentation, key project figures will be discussed as well as ideas about the limits of the given possibilities.|
