English abstract:
This contribution presents the results of a long-term thermal comfort monitoring effort in the so-called OEKOHAUS building in Petronell, Lower Austria. This building mainly acts as an educational facility for the Museum of Natural History of Vienna and includes also office and shortterm occupancy spaces. It was established in an existing building, adapted and refurbished in 1996. At the time of refurbishment, it clearly exceeded the applicable standard thermal requirements for building elements. Given the building's unique mixed use, it displays a highly fluctuating occupancy pattern. Subsequent to the recent installment of energy and indoor climate monitoring system, multiple streams of data are being collected. Specifically, indoor environmental variables relevant to thermal comfort in a number of zones in the building have been monitored and evaluated. Collected data include indoor temperature and relative humidity, which were represented and analyzed for different zones of the building in terms of psychrometric charts (for a monitoring
period in Winter 2012/13). Moreover, indoor CO2 concentration was monitored to address indoor air quality conditions. The paper presents the monitoring results and their meaning within the larger
context of a monitoring-based holistic building performance assessment strategy.
