Co2olBricks project focused on the important contents in the field of heritage conservation: How to reduce the energy consumption of historical buildings without destroying their cultural value and identity. Every country in the Baltic Sea Region and Europe has to face these issues and is looking for solutions.
The project's main objectives were the following:
- forwarding the political discussion on national and transnational level about the installation of new cooperation models between administrative institutions, architects, engineers, housing and building companies and affected building owners, to implement new strategies for technical, administrative and historical adequate approaches, to create the political and administrative basis to implement the technical, educational and economical solutions and to declare a transnational common position.
- finding new technical solutions concerning energetic potentials of historical buildings and to implement, monitor and evaluate pilot projects for adequately energy optimised historic buildings.
- upgrading the knowledge and education of architects, engineers, craftsmen, etc. to harmonise the curricula with the objective of an open market.
The project has been granted under the “Priority1: Fostering Innovations“ of the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007 – 2013. Co2ol Bricks started in December 2010 and run until December 2013.
