Building typologies in Belgium, Norway, Denmark and Finland


In many cases typical buildings are used as showcase examples to demonstrate the energy savings which can be achieved by implementation of refurbishment measures. In this document an overview of typology of residential building stock in the countries of the project (Belgium/Flanders, Finland, Norway, Denmark) is made.
Sets of typical buildings in combination with statistical data are needed in order to distinguish most appropriate deep renovation targets for building typologies. Therefore different approaches for building classification according to size and age are examined.
This is a starting point aiming at fostering transfer of innovative building technologies and methods for the uptake of sustainable renovation for most frequent building typologies in specific renovation markets.
