ATP wins an environmental prize
The Faculties of Architecture and Engineering Science of the University of Innsbruck have won yet another award.
Innsbruck, 25th May 2016 – Elation at ATP architects engineers: Following the award of the title “Innovative Building 2016” for the refurbishment and redesign of the Faculties of Architecture and Engineering Science of the University of Innsbruck, ATP has now received the well-known Energy Globe Award for the Tyrol Region for the same building.
The jury lavished particular praise on the innovative approach of ATP architects engineers. The specially developed, automatically-controlled compound top-hinged windows, the innovative, ecological element façades from recycled material, an ingenious concept for the individual automatic control of the solar protection as a means of reducing the insolation and the daylight and presence-dependent control of the dimmable lighting – a number of measures which considerably reduce energy consumption.
“This project once again demonstrates the unbelievable technical and architectural innovations which are possible in the areas of energy-efficient and sustainable building”, emphasized DI Bruno Oberhuber, the Managing Director of Energie Tirol.
In 2012, following an EU-wide, open realization competition, ATP was commissioned with the redesign and the thermal, building services, electrical, fire protection and escape route-related refurbishment of the two building complexes and their ancillary areas. Soon after completion in January 2015 the ÖGNB awarded the building the TQB Certificate as Austria’s second-best refurbished office building with 917 from 1,000 possible points as well as klimaaktiv standard gold with 1,000 from 1,000 quality points.
