Facing climate change

In addition to our day-to-day business, we at the I.F.I. always keep an eye on the social and meanwhile also global consequences of our actions - including climate change:


  1. Through our optimized structural design of buildings, we often achieve a significantly reduced use of materials compared to if the buildings were constructed and erected according to the standard against wind loads. Particularly in the case of energy-intensive materials such as steel or concrete, our calculations can make a significant contribution to improving the eco-balance of buildings.
  2. We support the PV industry in optimizing the design of their systems, making them not only wind-proof but also future-proof. This is another modest contribution to the energy transition.
  3. Our HVAC division focuses on the energy optimization of large-scale ventilation systems, e.g. in energy-intensive industrial plants or public swimming pools. As a result, companies and local authorities not only save costs but also reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
  4. For many of our calculations, we use environmental and climate data based on decades of weather statistics. However, to ensure that buildings can also withstand changing climatic conditions in the coming decades, we are already incorporating changes in wind and weather data into our calculations with foresight.

Are you planning new buildings or facilities and want to be sure that they are resilient to the foreseeable consequences of climate change? Or do you need an assessment of how you can reduce the need for fossil resources in the future and at the same time only use renewable resources to a reasonable extent in order to keep costs under control on both sides? We will be happy to analyze such questions for you, show you what is physically unavoidable and where there is actually potential for optimization that can be leveraged with reasonable effort.
