From integrating new technologies and information systems to surveying historical buildings: our research projects call for an integrated approach to every stage of a building’s life. Our client- and sector-specific market research supports companies and institutions in the construction, real estate, and other parties involved in the industry value chain. Through our research, we contribute to innovative, sustainable, energy-efficient, and quality construction methods.
Windows, Doors and Façade technology
We address issues relating to construction, statics, construction physics, and production technology in regards to building envelopes and adjacent construction elements. Together with our partners, we develop and optimise products and systems in the areas of transparent curtain walls, windows, and doors. Important topics also include measuring and calculating heat transfer, anti-burglary measures, climate assessment, and testing vehicle components for use in public transportation. We are EN ISO 17025 accredited and are a notified testing center for windows and doors.
