Building Professionals, Architects and master-builders
Architects and master builders play an important role in building design process. Very often the design of the whole building or its components is not up to the state of the art respectively the interaction of components, e. g. the heating system, is inadequate, sometimes by reason of tradition, lack of knowledge or other causes. In many cases building owners trust their planners and their design, as well as their constructors and their skill, especially in the private home sector. It is not appropriate to teach and inform all building owners but essential giving information on integrated energy design of buildings to architects and master-builders, who will be engaged in the study trips.
