The internal meeting was held from March 19th to 20th in Madrid

After five months from REZBUILD’s kick off meeting in Rome, representatives of consortium partners met from March 19th to 20th in Madrid (Spain). The internal meeting main objective was to advance in the collaboration of the project and get to know the scenario of the demonstration experience in the city.

The dwelling selected for the demonstration in Spain is a semi-detached house, representing typical single familiar dwellings in different districts in the Community of Madrid. The housing buildings of this demo site are ubicated in San Fermin district and currently have energy rating E.

The objective of the renovation is to extend buildings useful life by another 40 years, to reduce consumption and energy costs of more than 60%, to improve comfort for the tenants, including the energy performance of the building as a factor of the total property value, to decrease the renovation time at least by 30% and reduce the refurbishment budget.



On March 19th, the members of consortium met at the headquarters of the Regional Ministry of Transport and Infrastructures (CTVI) in Madrid. CTVI, partner of REZBUILD consortium, is in charge of the implementation of the Spanish demonstration. One of the main tasks of this organization is the development, construction and maintenance of social housing in Madrid.

During the last day of the internal meeting, the attendees had the opportunity to visit the buildings that will be rehabilitated within the framework of the project.

In this sense, CTVI will play an active role as project partner in this pilot experience. CTVI will be in charge of the organisation of the global demonstrator, collecting information on performance, and gathering the monitored results for the related statistical analysis.

CTVI will work jointly with our partner VIAS, to whom it will provide the necessary administrative coordination; acquire the possible administrative permits, as well as the planning of the construction and the management of the project. As part of its role in the consortium, ZABALA will launch social innovation actions in order to work with the local communities in this area and establish the best practices in due diligence.

REZBUILD will develop one refurbishment ecosystem based on the integration of cost-effective technologies, business models and life cycle interaction for deep NZEB renovation. These refurbishment ecosystem and technologies will be also validated and optimized in Oslo (Norway) and Venice (Italy).
