Unit 11 - Sustainable management of existing building stock

Tywoniak, Jan (Czech Republic) / Moffatt, Sebastian (Canada)

Taking action to improve the performance of existing building stocks is a crucial, yet underappreciated strategy for achieving more sustainable and livable communities. This session will focus on what can be done with existing stocks, and the difficult task of managing the changes. In particular, we will discuss methods for estimating potential impacts, the features of successful policy and programs, and the role of incentives. We will explore possible interventions during the cyclical processes of maintenance, refurbishment and conversion. We will also attempt to derive lessons from existing buildings that can be used to enhance our understanding of building lifecycle assessment, and strategies for new construction. Finally we will ask how decision support systems have been - or should be - used to assess and manage stocks, and to cope with the diversity, complexity and long life of existing buildings.
