Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

... reflect the basics of healthy, climate-adapted construction;

... evaluate ecological building products and building constructions;

... explain the production of different materials and constructions (e.g. insulation materials, recycled building materials, constructions made of straw, clay etc.) and

... define the different types of facade and roof greening.

Subject of course

Climate change and its associated consequences represent one of the greatest global challenges of the present and the future. The building industry in particular plays a major role here, as it is responsible for around 40% of emissions, 40% of final energy consumption, and the majority of resource consumption and waste production. Climate protection can therefore only work if the ecologization of the building sector progresses.

The course "Ecological BuildingTechnologies 1" teaches students the basics of ecological and health impacts of conventional construction as well as basic functionalities and technologies of climate-adapted and ecological construction. The content of the course is presented frontally as well as discussed interactively with the students and intensified by exercises in the LVA. The lecture units are supplemented by an exercise in which the students are to independently visit an ecological building or an implemented building greenery and analyze it in the context of a protocol.

Teaching methods

Lectures on different topics of ecological construction with interactive elements. The lecture starts in an online format. Depending on the course of the Corona pandemic, a switch to face-to-face teaching is possible.

The lecture units are supplemented by an exercise in which the students are to independently visit an ecological building or an implemented building greenery and analyze it in the context of a protocol. A list of example buildings will be provided. However, students are generally encouraged to search for a suitable object themselves.

Examination modalities

TThere is a 75% attendance requirement for the course. That means:

- Participation in at least 7 of 9 lecture dates.

The grade for the LVA is made up of 2 parts, both of which must be completed positively:

- 30%: Timely submission of the protocol for the exercise part (independent object inspection).
- 70%: written final examination on the contents of the lecture.

The exam will probably take place at the end of June as a written online exam via TUWEL and ZOOM.
