Beyond single-family houses: new report explores the extension of the building renovation passport tools to other building types

The new report by the H2020 project iBRoad explores how the project's methods can be useful for deep stepwise renovation in multi-family and non-residential buildings and describes how its renovation roadmap and logbook, which were initially targeting single-family home owners, can be adapted to meet the requirements of other target groups.

The analysis shows that all building types considered in the report would benefit from having a long-term step-by-step renovation plan and logbook. Both the iBRoad roadmap and the iBRoad logbook for single-family houses can be adapted to meet the specific requirements of multi-family homes and non-residential buildings.

When it comes to existing policy instruments, there is hardly any instrument that supports stepwise renovation plans for the non-residential and multi-family market. For iBRoad to be implemented to multi-family and non-residential buildings in the pilot countries in the future, policy instruments would ideally have to be rearranged to specifically support step-wise renovations for these types of buildings.

iBRoad will host its online final conference on 24 November 2020, 9:30-13:00 CET. More information and registration link is available here.
