OUTPUTS

Built Heritage, Energy and Environmental - Friendly Integrated Tools for the sustainable management of Historic Urban Areas

The preservation of built heritage needs a model that is environmentally, economically and socially sustainable. The BhENEFIT project focuses on improving the management of historic built areas, combining the daily maintenance of historic heritage with its preservation and valorisation in a sustainable way. The project will look for novel solutions on how to evaluate the use and historical value of built areas and how to optimise building performances (its energy efficiency and structural behavioural increase). 

The project will also deliver a long-term perspective for minimising emergency actions through a comprehensive monitoring strategy, which is aimed at the planned preservation of cultural heritage. 

To implement such strategy, BhENEFIT will build management capacities, involve and coordinate relevant players from the public and private sectors and provide them with new innovative methodologies. The BhENEFIT methodology will be validated by 13 partners in eight different pilot areas, which are related to specific issues (earthquake, pollution, touristic flows, energy efficiency etc.). Moreover, new tools like action plans and ICT implementations will be customised to local needs.

OUTPUTS & documents

The main outputs of the projects tackle several different challenges of HBA management: enhancement of awareness and skills of involved stakeholders, increase of data and information availability and systematic monitoring, increase of exchange and coordination among authorities and public/private organisations, increase of monitoring and planning tools.

 THEMATIC WORK PACKAGES and deliverables

THEMATIC WP 1: IMPROVING THE GOVERNANCE

The WP will deliver a policies assessment in the fields of historic built areas (HBA) management. The assessment will evaluate and synthetize existing governance and policies in the Central Europe countries to deliver a reference document for the successive project activities.

THEMATIC WP 3: DEPLOYMENT OF INSTRUMENT & TOOLS

Different from a common targeted dissemination activity, this WP aims to raise awareness in many typologies of subjects, both private and public, about their possible roles inside a more sustainable approach to HBA management and risk prevention.

THEMATIC WP 2: DEPLOYMENT OF INSTRUMENT & TOOLS

This WP is focused on maintenance effects on HBA and is structured on 3 consequential activities: identification of the main components for the sustainable technical management of an HBA; monitoring process of what is going on inside an Historic Built Area and planning of interventions starting from monitoring data.

best practice transfer tool

After a survey of international Best practices related to Historic urban areas governance systems and 3 site visits, a Best Practice transfer tool has been produced to evaluate critical factors and costs of the transferability of a best practice to another context.
