Sustainable Educational Buildings

Education means the continuous development of skills and the expansion of knowledge. This process accompanies people throughout their lives and takes place in a wide variety of learning environments, the architectural and functional design of which has a significant influence on learning motivation and educational success.

In many local authorities, refurbishment measures and replacement buildings for schools are due in the coming years. The same applies to colleges and university buildings, which are generally built by the federal states. The often poor structural condition of existing buildings is cited as a reason for new construction. However, demographic change and changes in educational concepts are also reasons for planned new construction or extensive refurbishment measures. The aim is to achieve sustainable building quality with the lowest possible expenditure and environmental impact while maintaining a high and long-term quality of use. Sustainable educational buildings are characterised by the following properties, among others:

  • Minimised energy and resource consumption and a high proportion of renewable energies in the energy supply (target of climate neutrality).
  • Use of ecological and non-hazardous building materials
  • High interior quality
  • High space efficiency, flexibility of use and multifunctionality
