The local situation of new and existing housing in Reggio Calabria is characterised by the lack of clear principles regarding sustainability standards. LAP will therefore focus on establishing policies for the implementation of quality guidelines for both new building and retrofitting in the housing sector. This will imply the involvement of the LSG and the University of Reggio Calabria, who will serve as “consultant”, together with other PPs, within the WG. LSG involvement will be of great importance given the necessity of establishing shared guidelines and quality criteria for housing construction and retrofitting. A strategic role will be attributed to the authorities which can orient the key strategies of management and intervention on local building policies. The activities which these authorities will lead will consist in the on-site experimentation and validation of the design code for sustainable housing design and retrofitting.
