Abschlussdokumentatione of the survey of “Green Office” the discussion about climate change does not break off, more and more people deal with questions relating to the reduction of CO2 emissions and sustainability. For the sake, companies are increasingly required to address this issue and to take concrete actions, sustainable technologies and to realize concepts in their operating not only the environment. The challenge here is to take into account environmental, economic and social interests. An inventory, the Fraunhofer IAO whether and to what extent German companies already have implemented sustainability in their operations, puts on the basis of the results of the online survey Green Office “, in the period from May to October 2009 over 250 companies have participated in the. German companies, but also organisations from the health and social services, as well as from the public service were the target group of the survey conducted in the composite project Office21. The survey focused on the Basic setting on sustainability and on the concrete measures, particularly in the area of Office design.

The degree of willingness to invest was examined in the survey as well as the motivations and possible barriers. The study results show that the companies surveyed consider sustainability generally important or very important. This is true not only for the fundamental ecological orientation of their organization and their products and services, but also for the aspect of sustainable design of office environments. As the main motive for the introduction of measures to enhance the sustainability, specify the respondents image increases, cost savings and the actual contribution to the protection of the environment. However, there is a wide gap between the expressed importance and the measures actually taken. Contact information is here: Paula Rosenthal. In particular the uncertainty about the capital expenditures and the lack of expertise in the development of sustainable solutions prevent businesses according to the survey on the Implementation. This suggests that in the company on the one hand yet large potential exists to increase the sustainability of their own. On the other hand, sustainable concepts, products and consultancy services open up high market potential for German companies higher costs for environmentally-oriented measures when compared to conventional solutions. The results of the study are summarized in a final documentation, which can be requested via the contact. ..umweltgerechte buerogestaltung.html Tobias Hug, Fraunhofer IAO

Ventilation and temperature on the roof window can prevent condensation fogged, moist window panes are a nuisance to tenants and owners: because in addition to the gloomy Outlook, wooden window frames suffer from the wetness. Consequential damages such as mold growth are also cannot be ruled out. However, there are measures to get to grips with this problem whether already in the planning, so before installing Windows, or by proper ventilation during use. The cause for the drop on the window is usually in the air contained water that accumulates on the cooler window pane. The terms that describe this phenomenon are varied: from condensation of sweat up to condensation inside. Temperature and humidity of the air in the area of the roof window are decisive for the development.

The air is warmer, more water can absorb them. The temperature drops, it may be that the air again releases the moisture as condensation. In an apartment, this physical joins Legality often first on the Windows on. The reason for this is that condensed the moisture first at the coldest points. Windows that have no insulation values of today’s high standards are often in older homes. The reasons arise two starting points to prevent condensation: reduce the humidity inside the House and raising the temperature in the area of the window.

You should consider the latter best already in the planning of a penthouse apartment. The skylight manufacturer VELUX recommends owners to place a heater under the window and to ensure optimal conditions for the air circulation especially at the bottom of the window. The best hot airflow from the radiator through the window pane is achieved by a vertical inner lining and broken window sill (see also graphics hot air duct). This prevents excessive cooling of the window pane and reduces the risk of condensation. During the cold months, the radiator should be weak, but be continuously, so that constantly warm air holds the window panes on temperature and they fogged up less. Also the replacement of old discs against new with good thermal insulation value, that allow less heat from the room, can further reduce condensation. Tenants or owners the easiest way with sufficient airing meet high air humidity in the room. For a regular exchange of warm, moist indoor air for fresh, dry outside air prevents that water comes out of the air. This is becoming increasingly important in the face of increasingly isolated and insulated homes. While earlier the necessary air exchange often virtually automatically by leaking joints or cracks of the building, residents today itself must take care. Already three till four times on the day the window open and hold each for five minutes on passage, recommend experts as appropriate. Controllable VELUX roof window help. Tenants and owners can set individual processes with a remote control, the take into account the Expert Council. The Windows open and close even if the residents are not at home or just forget about the airing. It is enough once to enter the process to provide for sufficient air exchange every day.
