Building Refurbishment and Transition
Existing buildings make our cities recognisable and contribute to their liveability and attractiveness. Witteveen+Bos works on the planning, inspection, design, tendering and implementation of renovation and redevelopment plans.
The existing building is chosen increasingly as the starting point for new plans. Sometimes to improve energy performance, sometimes because of functional transformations. Schools and offices become homes, and old factories are converted into hotels and office buildings. Today’s technology lets us give buildings back their own original character and appearance, while at the same time making them comfortable and energy-neutral, by applying new forms of heat and cold supply, electricity generation and energy-saving techniques, among other measures.
When transforming buildings, we use our most specialist disciplines, combining them to create an integral design. We work with BIM, virtual reality and digital construction, and we design parametrically. We deliver custom-made work for each building, for instance advising on its sustainability and circularity, fire safety, building costs, permits, building damage and repair plans.
