Building performances and economic assessment of a nZEB residential renovation through industrialized approach
The proposed master thesis will focus on the analysis of the Life Cycle Cost and the Energy Performance of two nZEB renovation scenarios, a traditional and an industrialized one. The analysis will be carried out within a H2020 project and will have the scope to contribute to the definition of business models. The work will focus on developing renovation scenario collecting economic and energy performances data directly from the building owner, the design team, and the project partners. Within the work, the intern will be asked to work: on the preliminary design of the selected building renovation using both traditional and a set of innovative industrialised envelopes’ technologies, on the definition of an effective LCC scheme, and on a comprehensive scenarios comparison be presented to the building owner.
The main scope of the work is to:
- evaluate the effectiveness of the industrialised approach, achieving the nZEB standard, analysing the overall costs including the construction and O&M costs for the entire lifetime of the renovation (25‐30 years)
- compare the costs typologies with a traditional renovation including the O&M
- illustrate the potentialities of the industrialized nZEB renovation approach to the building owner, both from the technical and economic point of view.
The intern will interact with the Eurac team besides other national and international partners within the H2020 INFINITE project and there could be the possibility to do short periods abroad (demo visit).
