Renovation Of Buildings Using Steel Technologies

Short description

ROBUST addresses the renovation and improvement of existing buildings using steel-based technologies. It focuses on the particular issues in residential, industrial and commercial buildings and on techniques such as over-cladding, roof-top extensions and retrofit of timber roofs by steel. The scope of work concentrates on both building technology and building physics questions, particularly where overcladding of the existing building greatly reduces the heat loss through the façade or roof. An economic and sustainability assessment of these techniques will be made.
