Climate control in buildings, whereby savings can be made on energy and emissions, has been a major issue of recent years. Yet, the reality has often been limited to wrapping structures in thick polystyrene panels or fibreboards. With new buildings, much is also currently being made of the expensive passive construction method. However, both possibilities – and this is also many experts’ opinion – overlook the inhabitants of such buildings and their requirements in terms of an appropriate indoor atmosphere. This type of construction also involves relatively expensive manufacturing methods, so that any savings can only be expected after a number of years. With commercial construction, the concrete core activation system, in which a building structure’s planar components are utilised as heating and cooling areas, has gained much ground in recent times.
