Construction principles of seismic and energy renovation systems for existing buildings


Prefabricated “building systems” for the renovation of façades of existing buildings can achieve not only a physical building improvement of the envelope and thus result in lower energy consumption but also make an improvement in the resistance to seismic stress. To this end, the development of a combination of an exoskeleton and lightweight components as infill for the seismic truss system will be presented. Both a variability of the spatial appearance of the truss as well as the modularization of all construction components as a prerequisite for the prefabrication was examined and the system will be transferred into the real application by case studies as part of an H2020 research project.
