Abstract

The quality optimisation of buildings demands the consideration of the principles of life cycle assessment (LCA and LCC) and occupant satisfaction particularly with the aim to create sustainable buildings and high comfort standards. However, these high expectations require expertise to an extent which cannot be covered by an institution or research unit by its own. This paper features the basic principles, the results and findings of two FFG-research projects – one project already finalised and an ongoing second one – and according to the motto „building bridges”, these achievements emerged from a cooperation of several Austrian Universities of Applied Sciences. The online accessibility of the project`s results and tools is important in terms of the usability in research and teaching.
