Urban Rehabilitation workshop - 9th WCCE General Assembly Event
Building Rehabilitation is one of the bigger challenges to be addressed by all historical urban centres and consolidated urban areas world wide. Due to this, urban rehabilitation has become a relevant economic, social, cultural and environmental issue nowadays. Public impetus is essential for promoting large urban rehabilitation projects, engaging stakeholders for the improvement of life quality and tourism attraction of such urban centres.
On the occasion of WCCE’s General Assembly, ORDEM will hold an international workshop on Heritage Building restoration at the same venue on November 24th , 16:00h
SEISMIC STRUCTURAL CONSOLIDATION OF HISTORICAL AND MONUMENTAL BUILDINGS USING STEEL: INTERVENTIONS ON FOUNDATIONS AND ELEVATIONS
All consolidation designs to recover structural systems from damages due to earthquakes or any other natural or anthropic factor, should, therefore, must be strictly oriented to the safeguard of the historical and architectonical identity of the monument. Any intervention shall guarantee its full reversibility, that is to say the possibility to remove any reinforcing element laid down. Such reasons make consolidation with steel structures particularly eligible.

REHABILITATION, ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND HYGROTHERMAL PROBLEMS
The rehabilitation of existent buildings is crucial in Portugal taking into account the building stock degradation. The improvement of the energy efficiency is a great opportunity in this rehabilitation process. Nevertheless, the technical solutions need to be studied, so that buildings could have a good behaviour against moisture, an acceptable durability and to preserve the cultural heritage.

CASE STUDY: CAMPUS OF COUROS, GUIMARAES
Rehabilitation is mostly needed in historic city centres and progressively required in consolidated urban areas in Portugal. Urban rehabilitation is a relevant economic, social, cultural and environmental issue nowadays. Public initiative reveals essential for promoting large urban rehabilitation projects capable to incorporate all the above aspects. The Campus of Couros in Guimaraes is an interesting example on this topic.
