The crisis is worldwide as well as to read in the interviews with international architects. Every crisis offers but also a chance for those who know how it grabs the forelock. I want to introduce some interesting ideas in loose sequence. At Mark Kotsay you will find additional information. Sometimes, the ideas are not new, but nevertheless not less interesting, or failed.

A2haus is the beginning today. The company a2haus designs, plans and builds individual architect houses at a fixed price. The client gets in – and that’s I think once – 3 designs by different architects for a very low fee of 2,000 euros. The favorite of builders is then planned and implemented at a fixed price.

Connect with other leaders such as Eva Andersson-Dubin, New York City here. With us so there is no expensive sketch for the price of 3,000 to 5,000 euros, which then often don’t score at the start. Instead the a2 Builder free of charge three and gets this right.

In winter warm, in the summer cool at the natural building material brick is the thermal insulation built”: thanks to numerous bars and air chambers he is by nature very high heat insulation on. The heat remains so in winter indoors, while heat in the summer after outside is banned. Who would like to realize a low-energy or even passive house, which my brick house experts recommend”the plan brick MZ7 and MZ8.

Final Invoice

Architect law: How authentic is the final invoice of the architect? A final invoice is a final bill. Regarding their liability should be distinguished however, who provides the invoice: invoice will be provided by a contractor, so no waiver is connected. The customer can trust so that the entrepreneur is later no further claims. This is true for the BGB contract as well as for the VOB contract. An architect makes its final invoice, the binding effect is higher. However the Supreme Court over the years has weakened its originally strict stance on this topic, such as this in particular in a new decision of October 23, 2008 – AZ: VII ZR 105/07; Planner right report 12/2008 Express comes: originally, BGH, declared “that the architect is generally bound in good faith on his final bill, which he has granted having regard to the circumstances relevant for the calculation. Without good reason, he can from her later too departing his advantage, because he otherwise would sit in opposition to his to be taken of the final invoice declaration, that he was finally calculated its performance with her”(BGH construction law 1985,582).

In the further course of its case-law, the Supreme Court abandoned its strict stance on this issue. As he explained in his judgment of the 5.11.1992 (NJW 1993,660): “provided that in the change of the final invoice an illegal exercise of law within the meaning of 242 BGB (and in good faith), the architect is bound to its final invoice. That does not follow however still from the granting of the final invoice alone, rather requires a comprehensive consideration of mutual interests”. In the cited decision in 2008, the Supreme Court has clarified now that normally the final invoice of the architect has no binding effect. . There was an architect as General Planner for the extension of a production building for a flat fee of net taken over 850,000.

He had more demands upon receipt of full payment. The BGH makes it clear in this decision that the payment of the final bill alone is no measure of the principal worthy of protection could rely on the finality of the final invoice. Rather, the contracting authority must explain reasons, indicating that he is “so established in protection worthy manner through measures carried out or no-show, that an additional not more can be expected of him”. Summarized you must come thus to the realization that a set final invoice only in exceptional cases is mandatory for contracts with architects.

Whether the roof is actually rain safe depends on various aspects. Shall as a rule of thumb: ever steeper the slope, the higher the rain resistance, because of the rain to drain better.

The developers of Braas roof building materials including the test deck material under extreme conditions in the wind tunnel.

They slide test in the wind tunnel to a covered roof in a six-meter-long channel. A fan, an irrigation system and pump for vacuum generation simulate various weather conditions with different roof pitches. Over the course of the test, the vacuum is increased so long until water flows out of the inside of the top surface. From this the developers determine the lowest Roof inclination for the respective tile is suitable. With the results of the tests, you can improve the quality of the deck material and adapted to the requirements of the practice.
