Protocol for participative deep renovation design and user motivation

4RinEU will draft short guidelines allowing to identify and lower the deep renovation barrier, as well as to increase the stakeholders’ motivation in different EU geo-clusters. The protocol will include the identification of roles, needs and interests of owners, tenants and public authority, being key elements for achieving a successful and efficient implementation, reaching the expected impact in terms of energy savings and increased renovation rate.

Energy Audit of the deep renovation for the demo cases – Confidential

A report will present the audit methodology and the tools developed in the demo cases to reduce ‘prebound’ and ‘rebound’ effect on energy use in buildings, considering fuel poverty issue. The cost-optimal energy audit method will couple surveys, measurements and modelling. It will be cast as stand-alone service between the energy management companies and designers, in a wider framework of deep renovation.

Sensible Building Data Handler App

A novel tablet application for iOS, Windows and Android will be developed, able to gather data from the building. The app will allow the user to identify which systems are installed in various rooms (e.g. dimming controls for lighting in a room, room by room heating controls etc.) and ‘tag’ this information so that it can be applied to the operational model at a later date. A database of common equipment will be created, to allow the user to easily tag and to identify the location of plant and equipment that may differ from the original plans and layout of the building. The app will also contain functionality to specify sensor and meter locations in the building.


Concept design and performance targets for the demos

A report will define the best technology package to be used in each demo, taking into account its own peculiarities in terms of architectural features, construction typologies, climate and social aspects, deepness of renovation intervention, kind of facilities, structure of governance and decision making process (including owner, occupant, architect, main contractor, etc.), etc. A detailed plan with concept design will be drafted, with performance targets for the deep renovation on each of the three demo cases.
