Rebuilding modern housing for increased sustainability
2007 (English)In: COST C16 Improving the Quality of Existing Urban Building Envelopes - Structures, Delft University Press, 2007, 69-79 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This paper presents a number of structural building measures in the residential area Markbacken in Örebro, Sweden. The refurbishment programme was directed towards solving technical problems due to ageing materials and new demands for sustainability, especially for energy saving, and towards making the declining area more attractive on the housing market. The main challenges here, like in most of the post-war housing stock of Sweden, was to improve the accessibility for handicapped, to repair and enlarge balconies, and to add new ones, to adapt flat sizes to the local demands, and to improve the entrances to the buildings, at the same time preserving and carefully developing the architecture.
