Planning tasks involving existing structures are currently among the most common types of contract and almost every structure raises different demands, unique to their individual problems. Reflecting this, there are a number of publications on the market, most of which are quite specialized. This manual was designed a comprehensive guide, defining terms and concepts, combining the narrowly focused perspectives of the specialists and offering established approaches to this wide ranging topic.

The Refurbishment Manual closes the gap between basic constructional literature and one-sided, highly specialized technical literature. It constitutes a practical planning aid on the subject of refurbishment; providing a basic introduction to the relevant aspects of building physics; fire protection; sustainability and energy; hazardous materials; construction materials for interior and façade; historic preservation; and technical building equipment. It offers concrete tips on planning steps, methods of building analysis and cost benchmarks, as well as clear constructional solutions with built projects as examples. A unique feature of the volume is the specially developed timeline which allows the planner to quickly grasp, categorize and evaluate a set building task and obtain an efficient planning overview.
