Refurbishment in a life cycle perspective for an eco-oriented public planning
The building stock refurbishment is achieving more and more energy savings goals, but
the impacts associated with the building activities are not always considered: i.e. the waste’
production of construction and demolition as well as from addiction of high-tech materials. This
paper describes the extension to the urban scale an already applied and developed procedure
for individual buildings, which aims to maximizing the exploitation of the existing building
components and materials, in a life cycle perspective. The outcome is a tool by which a first
survey can be carried on an urban area to guide further refurbishment process.
