Actualisation 1b

Theory is only relevant if it is put into practice. Following the theoretical research outlined in Part 1, we now use two case studies to describe how it is received in practice. We have decided to look at two different buildings, each with a different function; an apartment building and an office building. Due to the limitations in the scope and aims of this study, we have limited our case studies to one particular part of the building. The intention is to provide an idea of how the theory can be applied in practice. In the case studies, we wish to apply the theory of updatable building to the envelope, or façade. Our choice was influenced by the fast pace of developments in the façade sector. The environmental requirements for buildings will become more and more stringent in the future. The façade has the most influence on the indoor climate. This is why we are focussing on this part of the building. We examine an updatable façade system which incorporates
the latest concepts of construction. The buildings are owned by different companies to ensure that the research has a practical base, which will lead to a greater support base for this concept among the target group. We selected the buildings based on predetermined characteristics.
