Title: Refurbishment or redevelopment of office buildings?
Subtitle: Sustainability comparisons and case histories

Ref Code: IP9/02
Authors: J Anderson and K Mills

Abstract1: Guidance is available on increasing the sustainability of individual refurbishment and redevelopment projects, but there is little information for comparing refurbishment and redevelopment options. Part 1 summarises the findings of a DTI-funded project to investigate sustainability of the two options. A simple online tool, Office Scorer, allows users to compare scenarios for a particular site. Part 2 contains case studies using Office Scorer. Quantitative results are given in ecopoints and costs per m2 or per person.
