In this page the most important project deliverables of the technical work packages T1-4 are published.
WP T1 - Building stock analysis and documentation of good practice building solutions
- Deliverable D.T1.1.1 Historic building typologies of the Alpine Space:
Munich University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with all the project partners analysed the HB stock in Alpine Space. Based on existing databases/heritage repositories, they subdivided the HB stock into different representative building typologies considering use, geometry, location, climate, architectural characteristics, construction and build-ing age.
- Deliverable D.T1.1.2 Deep historic analysis of an exemplary buildings:
For deliverable T1.1.1 Munich University of Applied Sciences analysed the HB stock in the Alpine Space. For deliverable T1.1.2 eight non-refurbished buildings, one representative per each of those typologies were closer investigated to serve as case study for the feasibility studies of task T2.3.
- Deliverable D.T1.2.1 Existing guidelines and recommendations:
Deliverable 1.2 is a structures repository of locally and thematically focused recommendations, directives, certification standards and guidelines – from policy and research projects - for the retrofit of historic buildings in the Alpine Space. The report provides a transnational comparison. The information about the existing manuals should, on one hand, show what is common practice, what is approvable on the part of the heritage preservation, and what technical instructions are recommended for dealing with the historical stock. At the same time, the review of the documents also serves the purpose of obtaining an overview of what is considered “best practice” in the energy-efficient refurbishment of historic buildings.
- Deliverable D.T.1.3.1 Assessment Scheme Including KPI for the Assessment and Benchmarking the Sustainability of Historic Buildings
This report consists of three major parts: The first part describes the methodology used for the development of the key performance indicators. The second part discusses the ATLAS assessment system. Based on a hierarchical structure of categories with different levels of detail, the ATLAS key performance indicators are defined. The third part introduces the newly added indicator. The issue “Heritage value” promotes the preservation of cultural heritage in the alpine region and helps to identify heritage related critical areas during process phases of a historical building renovation.
WP T2 - Replicable & robust retrofit solutions
- Deliverable D.T.2.1.1 Repository of compatible retrofit solutions:
2) Window solutions
3) Wall solutions
4) Heating solutions
6) Solar solutions- part 1
7) Solar solutions - part 2
The deliverable contains a collection of retrofit solutions for historic buildings in the alpine space. The documented solutions in the fields of windows, walls, HVAC and solar have a focus on heritage conservation in combination with an improvement of energy efficiency.
- Deliverable D.T2.4.1 Matrix Structure, decision tree & content
The aim of this activity was to develop a structure which, in combination with a decision tree, categorises and pre-selects the solutions documented in A.T2.1. In this way, a preselection of suitable solutions for the respective refurbishment case can be made in a simple way.
WP T3 - Toolkit for municipalities and regional planning strategies
- Deliverable D.T3.1.1 and D.T3.3.1 Inclusive business models, co-benefits and socio-economic value in historic building renovation in the Alpine Space & Report of sustainable revitalization concepts and funding strategies:
The Alpine historical buildings are recollection silos, the exhibit of the culture, habits, values and lifestyle that shaped a region over the time. Renovating the historical buildings brings with it other overarching socioeconomic impacts that go beyond the environmental benefits. The ATLAS research team interviewed over 30 rural alpine municipalities from 5 countries to better understand their views on the socioeconomic benefits in their region. The research team inquired about the opportunities, funding options and barriers that face the municipalities when they engage in historical retrofitting projects. The report summarizes the results of these interviews.
- Deliverable D.T3.2.1 Methods for assessment and quantification of local renewable energy sources in the alpine space:
The deliverable gathers information and capitalizes existing tools and strategies for potential assessment of renewables in the areas of the Alpine Space studied with focus on their impact on historic structures.
- Deliverable D.T3.4.1 Development of the ATLAS holistic decision-support methodology | Baseline for decision-support methodology (DS):
This report describes the novel ATLAS integrated decision support methodology, which guides the stakeholders throughout the renovation work of historical buildings in 5 sequential phases, starting at the initiation phase up to the in-use phase. The ATLAS IDS is supported by number of key performance indicators to ensure that the sustainability aspects are fully addressed at each phase. Moreover, the ATLAS IDS allow taking the surrounding neighbourhood into consideration when engaging a retrofitting project in order to benefit from cost saving and energy efficiency opportunities.
WP T4 - Demonstration and knowledge transfer
- Deliverable D.T4.2.2 Material for training modules (for consultants):
Booklet in German "Baukultur - oder kann das weg?"
Booklet in English "Is it building culture - or can it go?"
Training material in German "Die Schönheit des Alten"
For deliverable 4.2.2 the ATLAS partner EIV along with MUAS developed teaching materials for training modules for consultants. The aim was for them to be adapted to the national context and implemented on long-term by architect chambers and local energy agencies.
- Deliverable D.T4.4.2 Training material for professional training and upgrade training courses (for craftsmen):
Training material in German "Energieeffiziente Gebäude in Vorarlberg"
Training material in German "Lüftung in Historischen Gebäuden"
This set of training material for craftsmen includes relevant project results and was developed by the project partner EIV along with the University of Innsbruck for different crafts. The goal was to integrate the material into the training offered by professional schools or as upgrade training courses by the chambers of crafts.
- Virtual EnerCulTours:
This digital map was developed during CoVid-times, in order to give people the possibility of discovering best practice examples of energy-efficient historic building renovations. Users can navigate through three different “EnerCulTours”, each of them dedicated to a specific theme:
- Farmhouses in South Tyrol (red route) focusing on how the historic value and charm of an old farmhouse can be preserved and transferred to today's quality of living.
- Solar energy in alpine historic buildings (green route) showing solutions for photovoltaic or solar thermal systems integrated into the envelope of historic buildings.
- Industry, trade, and education buildings in Europe tour (blue route) presenting historic buildings once used for a particular purpose and the way they were given a new life.
