Catalogue data

AbstractNew construction represent only one percent of construction per year in European countries. Re-valuing the existing building stock is therefore a priority. Using bio-based insulation for energy retrofit and the reuse of building component in case of building demolition represent promising carbon-neutral solutions for the construction sector.
Objective- Adopt a methodology for the retrofit of historic buildings as well as 50’s to 80’s building stock.
- Understand and manage the moisture risks when retrofitting buildings.
- Know the biobased insulation market.
- Practice deconstruction of existing building, from dismantling to reuse.
- Challenge the conventional building design to maximize its potential for later reuse.
LiteratureA list of literature will be offered on a specific online platform, that could be used by all students attending the lectures
