Retrofitting for environmental viability improvement of valued architectural landmarks

Objective

The global objective is to show that tertiary buildings from the post-war pre-energy conscious area, can be refurbished economically, with improvements in energy performance that lead to lower life-cycle CO2 emissions than the original building, or an equivalent new building. Thus refurbishment would make a significant contribution towards the EU policy of meeting the Kyoto protocol.

Specific objectives include:
The development of energy saving techniques appropriate to the construction type and use type of the demonstration buildings, involving new products and innovative procedures. A further objective is to recognise the social implications both for the occupants of the buildings, and the potential for employment.

A standard procedure for life cycle-evaluation of CO2 emissions, applied to single buildings, and to dynamic populations of buildings (CO2 budgeting) to enable building owners to form policies and priorities, a Design Guide to present the techniques and the conclusions.
