This research aims to promote a new approach to existing building requalification strategies in order to consider impacts due, from one side, to adopted building tecniques and materials and, from the other, to end-users’ requirements. Specifically, in order to estimate the environmental benefit in applying strategies geared towards components’ recyclability and durability, LCA evaluations are adopted. Analysis are referred to a vertical closure energy upgrading, for which building technologies are compared: the wall coat (glued layers) and the ventilated wall (dry assembled). For every solution, we have compared new, recycled, from local and elsewhere reused components. We have, also, checked the impact variation due to components’ replacement in a more limitated timeframe, according to the evolving demand of a more flexible built.

Abstract

This research aims to promote a new approach to existing building requalification strategies in order to consider impacts due, from one side, to adopted building tecniques and materials and, from the other, to end-users’ requirements. Specifically, in order to estimate the environmental benefit in applying strategies geared towards components’ recyclability and durability, LCA evaluations are adopted. Analysis are referred to a vertical closure energy upgrading, for which building technologies are compared: the wall coat (glued layers) and the ventilated wall (dry assembled). For every solution, we have compared new, recycled, from local and elsewhere reused components. We have, also, checked the impact variation due to components’ replacement in a more limitated timeframe, according to the evolving demand of a more flexible built.
