Title: Refurbishment or redevelopment of office buildings?
Subtitle: Part 1. Sustainability comparisons

Ref Code: IP9/02/1
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. In Part 2, case studies from using Office Scorer are presented, with quantitative results in ecopoints and costs per m2 or per person. Qualitative factors guide the user to other sources of information on specific issues.
