Knowledge and understanding:
The aim of the teaching is the consolidation of the fundamental skills for the correct and complete interpretation of the technological, energy and environmental building needs to be applied to an existing building in order to carry out its comprehensive and detailed analysis. The evaluation of the most appropriate and sustainable methods is functional to transformation, adaptation and recovery of the selected building.
The ability to choose and correctly use the technical components, elements and tools for energy, environmental and functional adaptation of the building will be acquired, as well as the ability to identify passive bioclimatic intervention strategies for an existing building.
Autonomy of judgment:
At the end of the course, the student must have developed the ability to critically evaluate which tools and techniques of retrofit and restoration of the building are the most suitable with regards to regulatory needs, which ones are the most advantageous choices in terms of performance achieved.
Students will develop the ability to describe, communicate and represent at various scales the choices made for the recovery and energy retrofit of the building, for its envelope component and for building system plant, through the use of the most appropriate methods, tools and calculations.
The lectures, practical exercises and site visits aim to consolidate the student's skills in the correct approach existing context and existing building: the student should have matured the knowledge and skills of the discipline to face, in the future, an in-depth study and autonomous application of these aspects.
