Watch: Sustainable regeneration of built heritage

The Sustainable Regeneration of Built Heritage (SRBH) platform was recently launched under the auspices of H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Malta.

The event forms part of an innovative initiative, led by architect Amber Wismayer, which seeks to identify and assess integral aspects in the process of sustainably intervening
on heritage buildings, by using San Anton Palace as a case study.

Improving the energy efficiency of local built heritage will support the safeguarding of Malta’s architectural legacy, and promote energy savings at a national level. The scope of the event is to highlight the key findings and recommendations of the project, and launch the SRBH Platform: a tool for raising awareness and supporting future
developments.

The platform is directed towards promoting the formulation of a national framework designed to achieve a balance between the aspects of heritage conservation and energy efficiency.

The SRBH project has been undertaken with the collaboration of the University of Bath and the Cardiff Metropolitan University. This event will close the first phase of the project, and launch the SRBH Platform.

Also present at the lunch was Prof. Alex Torpiano, Dean of the Faculty for the Built Environment (University of Malta) who chaired the panel of experts, and close the proceedings.
