Technical Building Systems Solutions

Efficient and comfortable technologies and systems to achieve optimum indoor climate

Fraunhofer IBP scientists explore energy-efficient systems, concepts and technologies, which provide user-oriented indoor climates in an environmentally friendly way. Bearing in mind that creating an efficient and sustainable indoor climate solution requires a perfectly harmonized integrated system that encompasses both architecture and technical building systems, they find solutions that optimally meet the requirements – such as thermal comfort, energy efficiency, occupational or operational safety. Our experts develop, implement and test holistic design approaches, construction and operation processes on the basis of “Building Information Modeling” (BIM) concepts.

Additionally, they focus on the integration of structural, technical and function-specific measures in the field of central building control systems and building automation. To optimize building operation and to achieve a high level of energy efficiency (also in complex building structures), the different building services systems (such as heating, ventilation, cooling or lighting and shading systems) need to be optimally adapted and integrated into an overall system.

 

Indoor climate systems

In the field of »Indoor climate systems« we are exploring energy-efficient systems, concepts and technologies, which help to create a comfortable indoor climate for users and specified uses, minimizing the consumption of natural resources. Sustainable and efficient indoor climate solutions can only be achieved on the basis of an ideally harmonized overall system, encompassing both architecture and technical building systems.

 

Systems integration

Our systems integration experts focus on issues concerning the integration of structural, technical and function-specific measures in the field of central building control systems and building automation. To optimize building operation and to achieve a high level of energy efficiency (also in complex building structures), the different building services systems need to be coordinated.
