Historic buildings and refurbishment.
This article forms part of a legacy document containing short overviews written by the forum leaders of 31 different topics which took place during PLEA 2017. This article is from Forum 13, Historic and Vernacular Buildings and examines the topic of historic building and refurbishment. The majority of the buildings that will exist in 2050 are already built. The greatest challenge we face today is to ensure that these buildings are brought up to a standard that can not only ensure they continue to provide safety and comfort of their occupants over time but also that the energy used to do so does not have too great an impact on our climate and environment.
