CONFERENCE SUMMARY

Approximately 70% of today's existing building stock is likely to still be in use in 2050.

This presents a major challenge to us today: how can we improve the energy efficiency of our buildings (particularly traditional buildings) through successful refurbishment and also capitalise on the long-term sustainability of the traditional building stock in response to climate change whilst preserving architectural and historic/cultural integrity?

How can we future-proof our buildings to 2090 standards?

Initiatives like the Green Deal are set to encourage interest in refurbishment. However, what do we know about the energy performance of existing buildings, how can refurbishment be carried out effectively and sustainably, what guidance is available, what are the real & perceived risks?

Historic Scotland, for example, has commissioned research over the last 5 year which attempts to address these issues.

Research undertaken at universities will be presented. Historic Scotland and building professionals involved in refurbishment projects will offer their perspectives.
