Increasing the quality and the value of existing buildings: energy, seismic and architectural retrofit practices

The Horizon 2020 funded project Pro-GET-onE - Proactive synergy of integrated Efficient Technologies on buildings’ Envelopes, focusses on tackling three different challenges in building renovation at once: seismic safety, energy efficiency and user integration. High-level speakers from the European Commission, Academia, Public bodies and the construction sector will contribute to the discussion on this synergy with topics such as prefab systems, nearly Zero Energy Buildings, Energy Positive Districts, BIM techniques and advanced legislation towards this building transition. Practical experiences from add-ons in the European urban context including large cities like Barcelona and Paris, will show examples of achieving added space, aesthetical quality and real estate value by refurbishments of the existing housing stock.
