Preface

Increasing the qualifications of our design and building culture to promote sustainability, energy efficiency and solar optimization cannot succeed unless accompanied by the conviction that responsibility for the future is bound up with advantages for all participants – all parties must be convinced that it will be profitable.

If this is an opportunity to reduce both investment and operating costs in favor of greater utilization quality without compromising architectural qualities - then the time and effort invested into integrated design by a competent team will deliver optimum yields to the client.

Requirements for architects and engineers have undergone fundamental changes in the building sector during the last few years. Clients need integrated solutions, ones which necessarily provide fair answers to all parties and meet their respective needs in as short a time as possible. In addition to the economic

viability of building construction principles and their architectural quality, the cost efficiency of the building operation and the usage quality and comfort of its result also play an important role, driven by changes in the real estate sector. The ready formulation, "only a rented building is a successful building", reflects a simplified correlation between utilization quality and cost efficiency or, expressed differently, the connection between economics and ecology, paired with future social responsibility.

Years of experience in the design and construction of environmentally-conscious non-residential building projects have shown that an integrated design process is a necessary prerequisite for successfully achieving sustainable buildings. Today, this precondition can no longer be met without the contribution of an interdisciplinary design team acting as a competent partner to the client for answering questions regarding the relationship between human needs, the environment and the building.

The development of guidelines for a more integrated design approach within the framework of the international research program of the IEA, Solar Heating and Cooling (SHC) Task 23, is intended to help designers and builders to support and master this process.
