Abstract

The EU Research Project SUSREF proposes new sustainable concepts and technologies for the refurbishment of building facades and external walls. As one part of the project it was necessary to identify the volumes of needs of refurbishment in the EU and in neighbouring areas and to evaluate the meaning of this in terms of environmental and economic impact and business potential. Within the tasks of the SUSREF project was also the service life assessment of the proposed refurbishment concepts of building facades and external walls. A simulation software, developed at the Technical Research Centre of Finland, was used to assess the performance and possible durability risks of the refurbishment concepts. The simulation software is able to emulate the temperature and moisture variations in a cross-section of the wall and to apply temperature and moisture sensitive degradation models at critical points of the structure. The software was applied for analyses of the refurbishment concepts in several European climates and with various material options. In this paper some results of the analyses are presented
