Project ID: 226858
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT


This is the final report for the SUSREF project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). SUSREF's main objective was to develop technologies and methodologies for sustainable refurbishment of external walls.

The report includes an executive summary referring to the project main aim, the five main premises it based on, its main objectives, as well as the aspects that had to be considered for the overall sustainability of the developed concepts and technological solutions. The project studied four general refurbishment cases, namely the external insulation, internal insulation, cavity wall insulation, as well as the replacement insulation during renovation. The report goes on outlining the project main objectives and the systemised methods for consideration of environmental performance of external walls and facades. SUSREF applied building physical models and developed guidelines for the building physical assessment of the refurbishment concepts of exterior walls. Furthermore, the report elaborates on the performed work the scientific and technological results and closes with a summary description of the potential impact, dissemination activities and the exploitation of results.
