BUILD UPON is the world’s largest collaborative project on building renovation, bringing together over 1,000 organisations across 13 countries, at over 80 events in 2016-17.
BUILD UPON aims to drive the design and implementation of a long-term framework for scaling-up deep energy efficient renovation in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey. Its goal is to create a renovation revolution across Europe by helping countries to deliver strategies for renovating their existing buildings, by the 30 April 2017 EU deadline. These strategies are critical to cutting Europe’s energy use, reducing the impacts of climate change, and creating buildings that deliver a high quality of life for everyone.
This innovative two year project was launched in March 2015 by Green Building Councils across Europe. It has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 649727.
