Abstract

This research is aimed at obtaining innovative building components for introducing zero energy principles into maintenance activities of real building stock. This goal is justified by the awareness that nowadays the building performances, in particular during the lifespan, are one of the main responsible of resources and energy consumption. Especially in the Italian context, where most of the existing buildings are generally made of technological-construction systems which are not fit to minimize energy consumption. For this reason the research is focused to prove that an environmental-friendly components replacements is a way for an extension of building life span with a high level of eco-efficiency and at the same time it is strategy for improving environmental performances along with whole building life cycle. After a background analysis concerning the connection between sustainability-maintenance activities and the state of the art of existing buildings using the examination of several existing building thermography investigations, the study has been picked out the building components or subparts, where heat losses are unusual. Thanks to this analysis, by adopting the Design by Components approach it has been possible to set new requirements for these elements, not just regarding energy efficiency, but also in favour of the inhabitants well-being. The paper deals with the results collected so far into designing innovative building components/solutions able to combine maintenance activities with energy efficiency strategies.
