Refurbishment of existing Buildings

Old but Gold

The refurbishment of existing buildings is gaining increasing importance. Many buildings in prime locations within Shanghai, Beijing or all other major cities, cannot serve profitable functions nowadays, they are old and often built for a different purpose. Now the interior layout needs to be amended to the new function and a new façade brings those old buildings back to the cities, gaining profit for the owners and operators and adding value to the cities. But refurbishment is both a challenge and an opportunity as, without a target-oriented strategy and an exact plan, failure is almost inevitable. On the other hand, optimization offers a unique opportunity to tackle and shape the future potential that lies dormant in a building.
