The StepUP concept

Make renovation more attractive and reliable

At the core of the StepUP project resides an incremental, iterative renovation methodology that aims to cover every phase of the renovation process to make each step more effective.

An iterative, holistic methodology

01

Evaluate the building status

Establish the baseline by collecting data on energy performance, comfort, IEQ

02

Define needs and priorities

Understand the main drivers for renovation from building owners and occupants feedback

03

Set up the renovation process

identify appropriate design patterns and intervention scenarios and involve the key stakeholders

04

Assess renovation scenarios

Evaluate the impact of various options against needs and priorities

05

Identify key Energy Conservation Measures

Choose a set of high value interventions for the current iteration

06

Choose Plug&Play technologies

Identify which interoperable solutions satisfy the requirements of each ECM for the iteration

07

Deploy interventions

Carry out installations and other onsite work to deploy the Energy Conservation Measures

08

Optimise building operation

Monitor and adjust the ECMs and the overall building performance through feedback loops
