deep renovation

The 4RinEU (Robust and Reliable technology concepts and business models for triggering deep Renovation of Residential buildings in EU) project, launched in October 2016, will define robust, cost-effective, tailorable deep renovation technology packages supported by usable methodologies, feeding into reliable business models. It will minimise failures in design and implementation, manage different stages of the deep renovation process, from the preliminary audit up to the end-of-life, and provide information on energy, comfort, users’ impact, and investment performance.
