Project description The focus of the project is the construction of a new sports center with an innovative and sophisticated membrane construction. It consists of a conical-shaped multi-ply membrane with an air gap and a translucent thermal insulation. The main advantages of textile construction materials are the outstanding design options, remarkable building shapes and -due to its light transmission it allows high indoor daylight quality. In addition to the focus on translucent thermal insulation and membrane materials, the air and the moisture conditions within the ventilated air layer are also investigated by simulations and will be measured in-situ: The project is accompanied by a research project that will also consider monitoring of the building performances and the thermal and moisture behavior of the roof construction. The aim of the project is the methodical analysis and development of energy efficient structural measures for buildings with membrane constructions including the broad range of planning and building permission issues.
