Holistic Quality Model for Extension of Existing Buildings

Research Project 18-2 (RP 18-2)

HOLISTIC QUALITY MODEL FOR EXTENSION OF EXISTING BUILDINGS: SOCIAL, ENVIRONMENTAL, TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC INTEGRATION

In this project we will extend the Holistic Quality Model (HQM) developed in the previous project RP 18-1, with its social, environmental and technical characteristics to include economic characteristics and their interrelations. Thus, all aspects of the sustainability triangle will be considered within the HQM. This makes it possible, for example, to link economic and environmental aspects by providing the same result in terms of environmental quality at lower cost or in less time.

The IntCDC is developing several novel building systems (e.g. for fibre and biocomposites), which require interdisciplinary as well as disciplinary research on quality modelling and assessment when adopting the HQM.

Holistic quality assessment is a challenge not only for newly planned buildings, but also for the existing building stock. For the latter, we will consider and acquire the initial or boundary conditions and establish new quality criteria for the various quality parameters in order to inform and support decision making already at the earliest stage when the decision about extension/conversion vs. demolition and and new construction in the urban context is at stake. The HQM and the corresponding quality assessment will provide a methodical contribution to support these co-decisions.
