Buildings that improve the quality of life

Improving the quality of life through renovation of buildings. Get insights on how we can design energy renovation projects to help solve some of the problems in rundown or challenged urban areas

Download report: Upscaling urban regeneration

Rundown or challenged neighbourhoods often face multiple social problems combined with health problems for the people living in inadequate buildings. The downward spiral, with interlinked problems such as poor buildings, social problems and a bad reputation, can be reversed through comprehensive urban regeneration, upgrading the buildings' energy performance, their aesthetic quality and the neighbourhood in general. 

We have invited a number of international experts to discuss and share their insight on how we can replicate and scale up the existing good experience from real cases across Europe.

Insight from the dialogue is presented in our new report on urban regeneration.
