Evaluation concept for the implementation of the framework agreement on serial and modular construction

Serial and modular construction is considered to have great potential for creating affordable living space. In order to promote the development of the market for these types of construction, the Bundesverband deutscher Wohnungs- und Immobilienunternehmen e.V. (Federal Association of German Housing and Real Estate Companies) has concluded a framework agreement for serial and modular construction methods with nine bidders and bidding consortia. The framework agreement entitles the contracting parties to call off construction services in a fixed procedure and to initiate individual construction contracts during the term of the agreement. The evaluation should provide information on how effective the framework agreement, but also serial and modular construction as a whole is with regard to the objectives of the Alliance for Affordable Housing and Construction.

Recommendations for the Effizienzhaus Plus Standard - Expert survey and best practice examples

The Effizienzhaus Plus Standard can make an important contribution towards a climate-neutral building stock in Germany. Efficiency House Plus Buildings produce more energy from renewable sources than they need for their operation. A planning guide developed within the project provides recommendations for the successful implementation of the Effizienzhaus Plus Standard in residential buildings.

Market design for the public construction sector – feasibility study

The goal of market design is to improve the performance of existing markets by actively shaping their rules. To this end, market designers examine the peculiarities of the respective market and identify the mechanisms of action prevailing there. In order to find a market mechanism that best achieves the market operator's goals, market designers use theoretical, experimental and empirical methods.

Guideline heavy rain - Property protection and structural precautions

In the past few years there have been an increasing number of unusually heavy rainfall events in Germany, which have resulted in major damage to building infrastructure. Adjustment measures should, therefore, also be taken at the property and building level in order to minimise the consequences of such events. Existing recommendations for action for flooding can only be transferred to the demands of extreme rainfall to a limited extent. Therefore, a guideline for property protection and structural precautions needs to be created.

Agile evaluation of building projects with established transfer of knowledge

The execution of many construction projects (new buildings, refurbishments, and extensions) according to the RBBau Guidelines is the main function of the federal building administrations. Currently there is no standardized or systematic procedure in place to evaluate federal building projects and to obtain and provide relevant expertise – thus facilitating a better execution of future projects. Therefore, a concept to had to be developed on how to gather operating experience gained by members of the federal building administrations – especially regarding aspects of project management and achieving the determined project goals – can be efficiently and systematically registered or measured, interpreted, and made available for other projects.

Energetic monitoring of two "Effizienzhäuser Plus im Altbau"

As part of the competition "Effizienzhaus Plus im Altbau" ("Efficiency House Plus in old buildings"), which was awarded in 2012, two residential areas dating back to 1938 were renovated in Neu-Ulm. The two different concepts of the realized model projects should exemplarily show how a sustainable further development of the residential building stock to the Effizienzhaus Plus for the wide application can be implemented in terms of building.
