dc.description One of the four books produced within the scope of Action C16 “Improving the quality of existing urban building envelopes” which started as a COST UCE programme. The acronym ‘COST’ stands for European COoperation in the field of Scientific and Technical research, and falls under the Urban Civil Engineering Technical Committee (UCE). The main characteristic of COST is a ‘bottom-up approach’. The COST Action C16 “Improving the quality of existing urban building envelopes” is directed to multi-storey residential blocks from the period after World War II, especially those built during the period when the need for housing in Europe was at its greatest. That is why the COST Action C16 focussed on the period 1950 to 1980. en_US

As well as tackling the typological, architectural and environmental obsolescence of the multi-storey blocks, the refurbishment programme also achieved compliance with current national seismic regulations. The intervention on the structures involved above all the introduction of tension rods for wind bracing, that improve and reinforce the structure in relation to seismic events. en_US
