Sustainable holidays with sustainable building methods.

Natural materials and low energy building methods.

Another important aspect of a sustainable holiday in Saalbach Hinterglemm involves energy saving building methods: all the Bachgut chalets in Saalbach Hinterglemm are low energy houses which use only half as much heating energy as buildings which were built during the course of the Thermal Insulation Regulation.

Hereby insulation of 26 to 40 centimetres is used. Windows and doors as ‘locks’ channelling heat and cool air, so to speak, also play a decisive role. For maximum heat insulation, all windows at the Bachgut incorporate triple heat insulating glazing, which also stores a lot of sunlight during the day. This is known as passive solar gain. In a low energy house, the required energy supply is provided by photovoltaic systems and wood chip or pellet heating.

Wood frame walls & façades.

Pure nature in building.

In the construction of the walls at the Bachgut resort on the mountain in Saalbach Hinterglemm, wood frame walls were used which offer the following benefits:

  • Lightweight construction
  • Dry construction, no construction moisture and agreeable climate from the start
  • Short assembly and building time
  • Wooden building system also suitable for modern building forms
  • Minimal wall thickness with high insulation value

About 1,520 m² timber shingles were needed for the completion of the timber shingle façade. The so-called shingles are made from particularly high quality larch wood and split according to an old trade method. The shingles are double overlapped to ensure that no water can penetrate into the façade.

A sustainable benefit of the shingle façade is that it does not require painting or varnishing. And this means that chemical substances are also barely used.  With time, the shingles acquire a silver-grey patina.

Regional partners.

Local building companies.

In the building of the Bachgut, attention was also paid to employing local builders to help support regional business. As many raw materials and building materials as possible were sourced from the region.

  • Gravel from local streams
  • Concrete from the Maishofen concrete mixing facility (20 km away), which also produces its energy by hydropower.
  • Wood from our own forestry
