Ecological planning and building demands a holistic concept which combines and supports the different influences of the different sections (partial concepts).

ECOBINE provides a complex and extended knowledge of ecological planning and building. It is knowledge of 2 decades of research and practical building experience.

The contents are systematically and modularly structured. Because if its complexity, the context is divided in sections (partial concepts). These sections are:

  • Energy
  • Water
  • Building Materials
  • Waste
  • Urban Space
  • Mobility
  • Socio-Culture
  • Economy

Because ecological building is subject to a variety of effects, conditions but also closed interactions between the sections, the contents of these sections are linked.

The sections are dividend in main topics, topics and sub-topics. Every section describes the existing situation in connection with environmental problems. It explains the basic conditions and main objectives and introduces and discusses detailed methods of resolutions.
Existing projects give an example for the implementation of concrete building projects.

The modularly structured contents of ECOBINE include basic and specific knowledge and are kept up to date under the terms of current research and project work.
On the one hand, the modules consist of the sections; on the other hand specific sub-topics within the section might be modules.

All contents are completely available in English.
