Retrofitting for Environmental Viability Improvement of Valued Architectural Landmarks

The global objective is to demonstrate that tertiary buildings from the post-war pre-energy conscious era, 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.

The work focuses upon the refurbishment of six buildings: one hospital, one educational building, and four office buildings.
