About the publication "ENERBUILD Tool: Transnational Pilot Testing on 46 Buildings and Experiences on Advisory Services"
The report prescribes the results of the creation-process of the ENERBUILD Tool, its pilot application on 46 public buildings as well as its regional adaptation and integration in the subsidy system of the government of Vorarlberg for community based public buildings. It is the work done in the workpackage 6.2 and 6.3 of the ENERBUILD project.
A common tool for the evaluation of public buildings shall be
- the bases for exchange among experts from different regions
- the bases for the comparison for different regional standards for public buildings
- a practical attempt to harmonize ecological assessment tools for public buildings in the Alpine region.
The goal was to learn from this process about the regional needs, the responsibilities for an European harmonization process, and the strength and weaknesses of the ENERBUILD-approach. Public buildings have are role models for high quality in the building sector. The PPs decided themselves which pilot building they use. For this project a public building is a building on which a public authority defines directly the (ecological) quality of the building; all buildings that have a public use: schools, hospitals, offices, museums, even if they have a private owner; or could be a public owner with a private use (social housing); the public authority has to define the building performance target before the design process begin and follow it during the its several phase; for which we intend the result of planning design and work developed by public authority or private institution in order of public interest (a school, an institutional palace, a bank, a swimming pool, a museum, a barracks ...).
The work on the transnational pilot testing has been carried out by a team of 9 project partners of the ENERBUILD coordinated by the lead partner Regional Development Vorarlberg. The team included: Rhônalpénergie-Environnement, Regione Piemonte, Energy Agency Upper Styria, Tyrolean Future Foundation, Provincia Autonoma di Trento, European Academy Bolzano (Eurac), Provincia di Alessandria and Central Swiss economy-directors-conference.
