Life cycle analysis and planning in the renovation process of public housing



The paper presents some preliminary outcomes of the European funded research project named Pro-GET-onE, in particular life cycle analysis and planning applied to the refurbishment of existing public housing. The project regards the renovation of residential buildings through seimic rehabilitation and energy retrofitting. LCA and LCC analyses are carried out to compare different solutions and evaluate the impact of renovation in relation to demolition and reconstruction. The first results of a pilot building in Athens prove the economic and environmental convenience of the renovation approach.
