In rural areas, there is little adequate housing for the sustainable integration of asylum seekers, but many, partly dilapidated buildings, which have a good building structure but are not economically viable. The overall project idea is to create structures, in which asylum seekers rehabilitate these buildings for their families under professional guidance. The aim is to involve them on the labor market on the one hand and to enable them to be integrated through cooperation with local businesses on the other hand. For municipalities, value is created through the preservation of the cultural values of the buildings and active integration. In a feasibility study, labor market-relevant and socioeconomic structures within spatial planning and constructional conditions are analyzed and concrete recommendations for further implementation are given.

Standardized characteristic values and typical compositions of modern Austrian concretes are investigated. The latter are characterized by using standard tests and new methods, in order to quantify the temperature-dependent development of Young’s moduli, creep, and shrinkage. Together with structural tests on massive concrete components and numerical simulations, practice-oriented design principles for modern concretes are improved.
