Multifunctional precast elements made from
carbon-reinforced concrete

The title of the project “autartec” is derived from autarkic. An autarkic system is largely independent of external influences and supplies itself. If we want to build in an autarkic way, this means above all that the usable floor space is cut back by required building services which must be integrated. Here, there is potential for optimization enabling us to pursue the idea of autarky in building construction.

During its three-year duration, the “autartec” project that is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is focusing on the following four key areas: an almost...
