Building airtightness is a critical factor for Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings and represents a key challenge for the building sector. The objective of this webinar is to give background information on selected initiatives to improve the quality of the works with respect to building airtightness.

Vienna, 20.09.2013 No more quite new, but still well: In July the passive house certificate was lent to the Raiffeisen Climate Tower officially as the first high-rise office block worldwide. So the tower is - regarding to official certification in context - the most energy-efficient high rise of the world. The quality assurance of the project occurred also with the assessment systems of the ASBC and the quality criterions from klima:aktiv. In both systems prominent results could be achieved what underlines the comprehensive high-class claim of the building. The Raiffeisen Climate Tower is a lighthouse for sustainable construction worldwide.
Vienna, 6th Sept, 2011. ASBC is partner of klima:aktiv, the official Austrian Climate Protection Initiative. The case study for hotel and leisure buildings and the case study for education buildings is a cooperation project of ASBC and klima:aktiv. The core of this cooperation is the development of customized certification schemes for these building types. The new schemes will be available for existing buildings, renovations and new constructions by the end of the year.
Vienna, 29th Aug, 2011. ASBC cooperates with the EC-funded project SUPERBUILDINGS. The projects develops assessment methods for buildings on the European level. Currently an important deliverable is available. The 2nd Superbuildings-Newsletter provides a brief overview of a European survey of stakeholders in the field of sustainable construction and a proposal of an "ideal" structure for integrated building rating systems of the future. For more information have a look on the Superbuilding Website.
