Deep renovation design platform – Confidential

This document is the final report on the development activities undertaken in T3.2 of the 4RinEU project to deliver the Collaborative Design Platform (CDP) to support planning and design phase. The CDP has been created to support not just the planning and design phase, but all steps of the 4RinEU methodology across the life cycle of a building. The building repository and deep renovation packages can be included as supporting documents in context of the broader process, and various 4RinEU key performance indicators can be implemented and tracked at different stages.

Report describing the case of historic building

The report describes the results of Task 4.3 -The case of historic buildings. The presentation begins with general considerations on the topic of Energy Efficiency and Historic Buildings.It explains what is meant by historic buildings and which important statements and guidelines at the international level provide orientation for the sustainable treatment of historic assets. A heritage impact assessment for the 4RinEU technologies is also investigated. For the 3 historic building demo-cases in Norway, Netherlands, and Ireland, belonging to three different Geo-clusters,the application of the 4RinEU technologies is tested and the transferability of the results examined.

Potential renovation rate of a building typology in a specific area

The potential renovation rate analysis aims at evaluating the energy and environmental effects of deep renovation, taking results from the replication potential studied in 4RinEU deliverable D4.4. Here, the performances of the renovation packages are combined to the replication potential in specific contexts, namely Agència de l’Habitatge de Catalunya (AHC) and WOONZORG building stocks.
The analysis provides an estimation of the potential savings in energy consumptions and CO2 emissions occurring in case of deep renovation. Moreover, a potential monetary saving due to reduced energy consumption is presented. The deep renovation approach has been compared to non-renovation scenario looking at a 50-years-long period.

4RinEU repository of deep renovation packages in the geo-clusters

This report contains the description of the methodology which brought to the definition of a structured repository of simulation results. The outputs come from the application of the renovation packages, further analysed in Project Deliverable 3.3, to the different geo-clusters and building archetypes defined hereby.
The subdivision in geo-clusters has been defined dividing Europe into six areas (keeping the division based on National boundaries), according to the features of the residential building stock, the average building performances provided by the law and climatic conditions. In relation to 4RinEU project, each geo-cluster includes either a demo case or an early adopter (EA) building where the renovation packages will be integrated respectively with a real implementation (demos) or a feasibility study.

Easy-to-use cost effectiveness rating system

A barrier for building owners and investors about to embark on a deep-renovation project is often uncertainty about which technology choices may fit with their building and, in particular, with their specific preferences. One of the core pieces of the 4RinEU project is, hence, a multicriteria ranking tool that shall guide users early in their decision process. This technical note accompanies the implemented ranking-tool prototype and de-scribes its background and usage. It also describes requirements on the underlying repository that assembles most of the information processed in the tool.

The tool described in this deliverable is to be intended as a proof of concept. Individuals interested in testing it may request a trial version by writing to the following address: 4RinEU@eurac.edu

Early-RENo: Early design methodology – Confidential

Early-Reno stands for Early design methodology for Renewable Optimal use in building renovation process. This methodology has been included into an integrated tool, aimed to support the early decision-making process in case of renovation. The objective of the tool is to suggest the solution for maximising the exploitation of renewable energy sources available on site, while renovating a building. The main target users of the tool are designers and practitioners that have to evaluate the renewable energy potential and its exploitation while planning a renovation project.
The tool is quite flexible, but it has been developed considering the specific boundary conditions and needs of residential buildings (both single and multi family houses), according to the focus of 4Rin EU project.

4RinEU management to implement deep renovation

In general terms, a Deep Renovation project basically consists on the implementation of a set of actions aimed to reduce the global energy consumption of an existing building, through the renovation of the heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water and lighting systems and the improvement of the energy passive features of the building envelope. It is usually a complex process which involves many stakeholders, goes through several stages, implements a wide and diverse range of technical solutions and must consider a set of technical, economic and human factors with common and ambitious objectives.

Renovation projects are usually approached not as an integral process according to the complexity required but as a service delivery indifferent to the difficulty and multiplicity of the interactions existing between the parties involved and developed activities. This approach may result in the achievement of a sub-optimal global solution, the noncompliance of the defined targets, the increase of the final costs for one or several parties or, in the worst case, the project failure.

The methodology outlined in this document offers a new way of conducting the management of deep renovation projects, defining the barriers and challenges that the building construction industry should address.

Protocol for participative deep renovation design and user motivation

4RinEU short guidelines allow to identify and lower the deep renovation barrier, as well as to increase the stakeholders’ motivation in different EU geo-clusters. The protocol includes 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

The report presents 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 couples surveys, measurements and modelling. It is a stand-alone service between the energy management companies and designers, in a wider framework of deep renovation.

Sensible Building Data Handler App – Confidential

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.
