The Expert Day about renovation of high-rise buildings is approached from different angles. The event is composed of four sections.
During the kick-off section about VISION several bold statements came up. Ir. Arch. Filip Canfyn dropped the “HipHipHooray-phenomena” and Flemish Government Architect Leo Van Broeck told a story about installing chicory- and mushroom plantations in underground garages if our mobility policy will change in a bad way.
Also the following section about ENERGY came out strong. Remarkable was the presentation of Elisa Van Kenhove revealing frightening figures about legionella levels in hot tap water of a high-rise building case study.
During the TECHNICS section, prof. Nathan Van Den Bossche took the public in a nutshell along the story of the Etrimo residential towers. In particular, prof. Nathan Van Den Bossche told about the different aspects of research necessary for renovation of these buildings.
Finally the section about PRACTICE showed some facts in reality. Dominique Krickovic made sure all participants were given a better understanding of the role and duties of a syndic. Henceforth everyone who was present at this presentation, will be more respectful for the crucial role of the syndic.
