On the one hand, historic buildings stand for a considerable part of societal energy use and the pressure to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions is increasing. On the other hand, the historic building stock is an important cultural and material resource that we need to manage carefully for the benefit of present and future generations. Thus, we must find ways to balance the needs of building conservation and energy conservation.

P2ENDURE promotes evidence-based innovative solutions for deep renovation based on prefabricated Plug-and-Play systems in combination with on-site robotic 3D-printing and Building Information Modeling (BIM), demonstrated and monitored at 10-real projects in 4 geo-clusters with EU-wide replication potentials. Among the project targets is that to improve the availability and performance of energy saving solutions for deep renovation and transformation of vacant, obsolete or sub-optimal public buildings into dwellings. The project provides Plug & Play solutions which are:

Nowadays resources are running out quickly, it’s necessary to consider how the construction industry influences the environment using different materials and sources during all the building’s life cycle. For this reason, in every transformation phases it’s necessary to consider concepts as sustainability and green buildings. These are diffused from hundreds kind of green assessment tools, developed to measure sustainability goals in building sector and to compare the project with possible best practices or other green buildings.
