|Semester||Spring Semester 2020|

|Periodicity||yearly recurring course|
|Language of instruction||English|
|Comment||Only for CAS in Regenerative Materials.|
|Abstract||New construction represent only one percent of construction per year in European countries. Re-valuing the existing building stock is therefore a priority. Using bio-based insulation for energy retrofit and the reuse of building component in case of building demolition represent promising carbon-neutral solutions for the construction sector.|
|Objective||- Adopt a methodology for the retrofit of historic buildings as well as 50’s to 80’s building stock. |
- Understand and manage the moisture risks when retrofitting buildings.
- Know the biobased insulation market.
- Practice deconstruction of existing building, from dismantling to reuse.
- Challenge the conventional building design to maximize its potential for later reuse.
|Literature||A list of literature will be offered on a specific online platform, that could be used by all students attending the lectures|
