The City of Vienna has implemented its announcement to amend its housing promotion guidelines, as reported a few weeks ago. With the publication of the updated regulations for new buildings and renovations on June 5, 2018, these have now coming into effect.
Thus, in addition to many technical criteria, the elimination of the previous minimum building ecology requirements is a great success. All material restrictions (including PVC) were deleted. This means that the focus of Vienna’s housing subsidy is once again clearly focusing on energy and CO2 savings.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our colleagues in Austria and all those involved who have contributed to this success.
