Outer facade retrofitting trough precast insulation panels: method and planning tool applied to an Italian residential building



Developing a more energy efficient building stock is the focus of the European energy policies. Much of the required reduction in energy consumption needs to be achieved through the renovation of existing buildings. To this topic, the work presents all the research steps from the design process, through the experimental characterization in laboratory to the final on-site construction with respective monitoring campaign for the envelope retrofitting of an Italian residential building. The developed system, result of a European founded project EASEE is a prefabricated composite panel that integrate both thermal insulation and exterior finishing.
