Funded under: FP6-COORDINATION

Abstract

This is a brochure for the ERABUILD project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). ERABUILD aimed to increase coordination and collaboration amongst Europe's various national research programmes regarding sustainable construction and management of buildings so that good practice could be shared. Widely disseminated knowledge of new, more cost-effective techniques and materials for building, as well as energy-saving and conservation systems could help make this sector more environmentally friendly and sustainable. The consortium covered research into the entire life cycle of a building: design, construction, operation and maintenance, refurbishment and the eventual decommissioning. Furthermore, a three-pronged approach was adopted examining sustainability effects on the environment, the economy, and on quality of life.
