En­sur­ing sum­mer com­fort in school build­ings - Quo va­dis?

Oli­ver Ot­tin­ger
  "We want to of­fer stu­dents and teach­ers a pleas­ant and safe learn­ing en­vir­on­ment". This is the dis­trict of Darm­stadt-Dieburg's motto when it comes to school con­struc­tion. .The ap­plic­a­tion of Pass­ive House prin­ciples en­sures com­fort in winter. Sum­mer thermal in­su­la­tion, on the oth­er hand, is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult due to in­creased all-day op­er­a­tion, rising out­side tem­per­at­ures and the in­creas­ing use of light­weight tim­ber con­struc­tion meth­ods. Thus far, primar­ily nat­ur­al night-time vent­il­a­tion strategies in com­bin­a­tion with thermal stor­age masses have been util­ized. This present­a­tion will dis­cuss which oth­er pass­ive or act­ive cool­ing con­cepts are pos­sible and mean­ing­ful for the fu­ture real­iz­a­tion of pleas­ant learn­ing and work­ing en­vir­on­ments.
