Multi-level renovation impact framework for municipalities available

With the "BUILD UPON² FRAMEWORK", there is now a reference framework that supports municipalities in collecting and reviewing relevant building data in order to ultimately develop tailor-made renovation strategies. The goal is to create ecological, social and economic added value.

The tool was developed within the framework of the EU project BUILD UPON². Brian Cassidy, Senior Engineer at the Cork City Council, is taking advantage of the Framework. "Cork City Council will retrofit 2,700 social houses by 2030. The Build Upon² Framework is a fantastic opportunity to better monitor the impact of this programme on our climate targets and to exchange best practices with fellow European Local Authorities”, he comments.

With the aim of practical implementation, municipalities - including many signatories of the Covenant of Mayors - were involved in the development of the project to provide direct input and feedback.
