Improving the Quality of Suburban Building Stocks
The main objective of the Action is the development and dissemination of knowledge and tools to assess and promote the refurbishment of existing suburban building stocks, which make up more than 50% of all European Urban Heritage. Most of these buildings were completed after 1950 using low-cost technologies and are often characterized by very poor quality, which contributes to the social decay of suburbs. The aim of the Action is to investigate, compare, define and disseminate common knowledge concerning methods, procedures and technologies for the renovation and revitalization, with the aim of increasing their value and improving safety and the quality of life of inhabitants. Main contributions of the Action are established networking and dissemination of outcomes through conferences, publications and documentary work by each participants, that are and will be valuable for further actions.
