Sustainable renovation

The Danish Renovation Award (Renoverprisen) was first established a decade ago by Realdania and Grundejernes Investeringsfond. The prize seeks to honour the best building renovation projects that demonstrate ways to improve existing building stocks.

This is based on the premise that when we as a society care for our buildings, we also care for our cultural heritage and make better use of resources than we do when building from scratch.
