If you are from a public authority, wishing to support co-owners in their endeavour, do not hesitate to spread the guide amongst your city's condominiums. 


The guide is divided into three big phases: “First steps”, “Taking-off” and “The real thing”. All together, the guide counts 17 helpful items for soft and hard measures:

  • 14 documents are ready-to-use 
  • 3 documents are designed in a way as to be adapted by a public body, esp. regarding legal and financial issues, according to the local and national context. 


Keep in mind that there is no unique starting point or strict order to use the items. However, it makes sense for co-owners to define at what stage of the building retrofitting process their project is before going to a specific section of the guide.
