Share this Post:

The report highlights key learnings from successful urban regeneration projects across Europe combined with insights from experts in the field.

ROCKWOOL cooperated with BPIE and EIT Climate-KIC to produce the report “Upscaling urban regeneration: European frontrunner cases are leading the way”. The report highlights key learnings from successful urban regeneration projects across Europe combined with insights from experts in the field, including:

  • detailed assessments of renovation alternatives confirm that a deep renovation would be the cheapest option over a 30-year period;
  • improving the aesthetic quality combined with long-lasting materials is cheaper in the long run and can attract new investments to the renovated areas;
  • building owners see an increased value of their properties while reducing operational and maintenance costs;
  • engaging residents in the renovation process e.g. via “social contracts” increases the support among residents and can help to give people a new start;
  • long-term planning and broad cooperation is needed for success; and,
  • properly valuing and monetising the multiple benefits of deep renovation should be included in project evaluation.
