Iva Kovacic is Associate Professor and Head of Research Group for Integrated Planning at the Department for Industrial Building and interdisciplinary Planning at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Vienna University of Technology.
Her research focus is integrated collaborative design, supported by BIM and computational tools; life-cycle optimization of built environment and energy- and resources efficient industrial building and production.
Research Projects: BIMaterial, BIM_Sustain, BaMa_Balanced Manufacturing, CoBe_Cost Benefits of Integrated Planning, INFO_Interdisciplinary Research for Energy Efficient Production, ÖKOLO_Life Cycle Assessment of Passive House, ReCoRe_Resources Conserving Rennovation.
Iva Kovacic is born in 1973 in Zagreb, Croatia. She has studied architecture at Vienna University of Technology, where she also obtained her PhD Degree at Faculty of Civil Engineering. In the framework of her PhD Thesis she developed a model for holistic evaluation of building performance evaluation. Habilitation in 2016. As practicing architect, she worked in Austria and abroad (Germany, USA) and is a member of Bavarian Chamber of Architects.
Iva Kovacic is certified auditor of ÖGNI/DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council).
