Daniel Kellenberger teaches sustainable design at ETHZ and HSLU universities.
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ)

Since 2013, Intep’s managing director Daniel Kellenberger has been giving lectures in architecture and engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ). A visiting lecturer at the university’s department of building, environment and geomatics, he’s been teaching classes in the fields of construction and building technologies, specializing in con-struction and maintenance management. Each fall semester, he assists Professor Guillaume Habert by offering a workshop on sustainable real estate certifications.
The first part of the workshop provides students with an overview of different certification schemes and standards such as LEED, DGNB & -CH, MINERGIE (-P/-A)-ECO, SIA’s energy efficiency guide, the 2,000-Watt Standard and the Swiss Sustainable Building Standard. The second part focuses on illustrating these standards based on real-life examples. Last but not least, students will critically deal with the results, analyzing them and finally presenting and discussing them before a panel.

Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU) – Business School
Since 2015, Daniel Kellenberger has also been lecturing at the HSLU’s Business School in Lu-zern. Assisting Professor John Davidson, he teaches a 24 lesson spring semester class on “Environment and sustainability” as part of the “Planning and building properties” module within the university’s bachelor in real estate programme.
The class first teaches students the methodology of life-cycle assessments with view to em-bodied energy (non-renewable primary energy used during the construction of a building), non-renewable primary energy used for mobility and building operation, weighted energy used during operation, total primary energy, and carbon emissions caused by the building’s construction, operation and mobility. The requirements for these parameters are covered by the Swiss certification schemes and standards MINERGIE (-P/-A)-ECO, SIA’s energy efficiency guide and the 2,000-Watt Standard. The second lecture unit provides an in-depth understanding of these standards and certification schemes, while the third section focuses on sustainable real estate management with view to the 2050 energy strategy, the national sustainability strategy and real estate processes. Finally, students take a written exam, followed by a field trip to visit a series of built examples in the area, including one of Luzern’s first MINERGIE buildings as well as the award winning your+ project.
