Under the Quintuple Helix methodology, discussion groups proposed some measures and solutions for companies to meet the future challenges of the construction sector, including:
– Promoting partnerships between companies specialized on different elements of the building (facades, roofs, energy supply, etc.) and promote collaborative work to provide a whole solution for energy rehabilitation of a building.
– Creating a new professional profile to seek rehabilitation projects and select the companies would be involved on site.
– Promoting building refurbishments. Experts recognized the difficulties for rehabilitating flats individually instead of a group of homes, because of the relation between cost and benefit.
Specific workshops have also been held to promote new approaches in the sector, and the importance of training for workers.
