+++ Conference Countdown +++ PART 1: 30 apartments quickly refurbished

July 20, 2021

Read as the first part of our new weekly series "Conference Countdown" why prefabricated retrofits in existing buildings are indispensable for climate protection. Gerhard Kopeinig will present details on serial renovation in Linz on September 11, 2021, at the 25th International Passive House Conference.

30 apart­ments quickly re­fur­bished

The wooden ele­ments ar­rived on-site com­pletely pre­fab­ric­ated with in­teg­rated vent­il­a­tion, win­dows, sun pro­tec­tion, etc. and were then in­stalled. The dur­a­tion of the com­plete re­fur­bish­ment pro­ject of 30 oc­cu­pied (!) apart­ments was only four weeks! Ad­di­tion­al value comes from the high level of sat­is­fac­tion re­por­ted among the users due to the sig­ni­fic­antly im­proved en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and the im­proved liv­ing com­fort. The re­fur­bish­ment of the 30 oc­cu­pied apart­ments was pos­sible due to the ac­cur­acy provided by di­git­al plans as well as CNC pro­duc­tion.

Ger­hard Ko­pein­ig will present this re­fur­bish­ment pro­ject in Linz, Aus­tria, in Ses­sion 7. Seri­al re­fur­bish­ments like this one should help to in­crease re­fur­bish­ment rates. This in­crease is ne­ces­sary to pre­pare the build­ing stock for the fu­ture and im­ple­ment cli­mate pro­tec­tion in the build­ing sec­tor. The EU has launched the out­PHit pro­ject to achieve pre­cisely this.


De­tails on seri­al re­fur­bish­ment in Linz will be avail­able on Sat­urday, Septem­ber 11, 2021.
