Abstract [en]

In many countries, the existing housing stock will be a major part of the total stock for the coming hundred years or more. Thus, to reach Urgent goals for sustainable building, it is necessary not just to develop better concepts of new building, but also new models for housing renovation and management. In Sweden, during the last decade, several environmentally oriented renovation projects have been realized in large housing areas built 1946-1975. Thorough studies of some fifty projects aiming at environmental sustainability, as well as social, economic and cultural, offer an overview of problems and technical solutions. The aim of this paper is to give a Summary of this overwiew and to discuss the effects, efficiency, and applicability of specially interesting types of measures concerning building envelopes as well as technical systems and equipment, the Outdoor environment, and social sustainability.
