Assistant Buildings’ addition to Retrofit, Adopt, Cure And Develop the Actual Buildings up to zeRo energy, Activating a market for deep renovation
ABRACADABRA has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 696126 in order to demonstrate a new renovation strategy based on volumetric Add-ons and Renewables (AdoRES).
AdoRES are one (or a set of) Assistant Building unit(s) - like aside or façade additions, rooftop extensions or even an entire new building construction - that “adopt” the existing buildings (the so called Assisted Buildings) to achieve nearly zero energy.
In fact, a substantial increase in the quality and quantity of refurbishment of the existing building stock - both public and private - can play a key role in the implementation of the economic, environmental and social agendas of local authorities.
In particular, volumetric additions, such as those of AdoRES concept, can become a core component of municipal densification strategies and constitute a versatile tool for fostering urban sustainability.
Local Authorities committing to explore and use the AdoRES strategy developed by ABRACADABRA can benefit from:
More than 12 EU cities, such as Liège (Belgium), Marousi (Greece) and Bologna (Italy), already support ABRACADABRA
