Abstract

This paper presents the application of a probabilistic LCC method for the assessment of the
affordability of alternative internal insulation measures in a historic building. The work, based
on a Monte-Carlo approach for uncertainty analysis, particularly focuses on the characterisation
of the stochastic inputs of the assessment, related to the specific design options chosen,
highlighting the main assumptions and data fitting procedures applied on available data. The
probabilistic LCC application shows a great potential in providing realistic information about
results uncertainties and enabling useful analysis of potential benefits of a design option.
