Made in Holland - housing for different futures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

In the Dutch housing stock, many residential buildings constructed between 1945 and 1975 either need major refurbishment or have to be replaced by new construction [1]. In the context of the sustainability of the housing stock, refurbishment seems to be the more promising one of these two approaches [2]. An important success factor in refurbishment projects is the possibility to match (existing or easy to accomplish) quality dimensions of a building with the requirements of one or more target groups of (future) tenants. Based on experiences in recently executed projects in several Dutch cities, the paper will show how cost modeling can help to find the right match in such a project.
