The aim of this project ist the scientific monitoring for improving the building performance including the HVAC equipment as well as the building structure of the Neue Burg and the Corps de Logis. In a first step the current situation of the building is pictured by means of monitoring and subsequent thermal simulations. Based on these results, possibilities for increasing the energy efficiency are carried out, also with the aid of thermal simulation programs. Specific attention thereby is turned to the reactivation of the historic air funnels.
