This handbook accompanies the planner from the design to realisation stages giving concrete advice on how to put energy-saving redevelopment measures into practice. Large-scale detail drawings document constructive solutions in removing structural weak points. An overview of systems engineering measures aids in the judgement of options, cost and economic viability. Realised projects demonstrate that energetic measures alone are not enough to secure sustainable improvement but that it is important to consider the building as a whole. An analysis of the original situation and the measures taken and their appraisal are presented for each example. Text; English.
