Abstract

The paper reviews software tools and methods existing in EU member states, represented in this COST action for the refurbishment and upgrading of existing building stock evaluation. The countries represented include Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, United Kingdom and Turkey. The paper highlights different approaches and strategies taken by different Countries towards the methodologies to assess a building refurbishment, particularly in the suburban building stock, namely private and public social housing. In the two last years, the main thrust of Working Group 3 in this COST Action was to identify and focus on the methodologies in the European countries involved to assess a building refur-bishment. Following seminal work done in the first part of the Action - which was focused on the inventory of legislation, building regulations, administrative procedures and financial tools - the main aim of the Task was the collection of the main assessment models and different ap-proaches in each Country for quality assessment in a refurbishment action. This paper is presented as the work output of WG3 at the milestone Final Conference held in April 2012 in Ferrara. The scientific programme of the Action was based on a sequence of six specific tasks, that are reported in the final publication, with each workgroup’s output detailed though technical papers in respective chapters. In specific, the work of WG3 for Task 6 analyses the suitability of existing and available mod-els for assessing the quality and value of suburban housing estates to be refurbished. The strategic aim of this Task is the definition of criteria, strategies and actions (procedures, technical tools, economic analysis) for receiving information about the actual degradation state of the buildings and the possibility to develop renovation plans, taking into account the appli-cability and availability of existing systems. The suitability of the models is checked taking into consideration their compatibility with the legislation (i.e. fire protection, earth quake preven-tion, emission thresholds), the cost structure and the relevant standards of different countries.
