English abstract:
The major topic of research within this work comprises of climatic differences between container classes and ordinary classrooms. The chosen schools are all located in Lower-Austria, between Baden and Traiskirchen.
A middle and an elementary container-school, together with two normal elementary schools and a normal middle school are selected for comparison. All of the chosen educational spaces are either newly built or have been renovated during the last 9 years.
Temperature and relative humidity variations over a period of five months, and indoor carbon dioxide levels over a period of one month make up the bulk of the experimental data. These factors were chosen for their significant influence on the performance of the pupils and teachers. Prior research (LUKI 2008) shows that a higher than normal concentration of CO2 can cause loss of concentration in individuals and similar adverse effects on the attention span and general academic performance can be attributed to uncomfortable indoor environments.
