Experiences from research, development and expert consulting are applied in teaching, continuous training and capacity-building at home and abroad. Examples of know-how-transfer:
Corona and climate protection
Avoiding the transmission of Covid-19 viruses can contribute significantly to energy savings in buildings. You are welcome to our consultancy for the design of appropriate ventilation systems in schools and offices, both existing and new buildings.
