An architectural design collaboration in Denmark is hard at work on a prefab, modular façade that can be quickly installed on an existing building to boost its energy efficiency.
REBUS (Renovating Buildings Sustainably) “seeks to change the way we approach the renovation of underperforming housing by incorporating design solutions that limit environmental impacts while expanding tenant involvement,” the project website states. “Renovating the existing housing stock is by far the least carbon-intensive construction solution available,” it adds. “Post-renovation, buildings will consume 50% less energy, with the renovation process using 30% fewer resources and yielding a 20% higher productivity.”
