Fedarene Info 33 – focus on Eco-buildings

Focus on Eco-buildings

The aim of the Ecobuilding concept is to provide comfortable life standards in buildings without heating. Suitable and environmentally friendly technologies can be used to provide low-consumption buildings. Many projects show that the passive house construction standard can be achieved all over Europe. Fast and O.Ö. Energiesparverband, both Fedarene members, are leading such ecobuilding projects. Bill Dunster, the architect who designed the famous “Bedzed” project, one of the first eco-communities, talks about his experience.
