The final objective of this study is to critically analyze the impact of residential building renovation policies. These policies give priority, above all, to interventions that are comprehensive. However, these are limited to improving energy, accessibility and safety.
Even so, there are other areas that are also key, but are excluded from these strategies, such as protecting built heritage or alleviating the social imbalance of cities.
This research project foresees four years of work. This first year has been used to define the context and collect data from one of the capitals of the Basque Country (San Sebastian). Data were sought from the three areas mentioned: rehabilitation interventions, levels of protection of the heritage of residential buildings and vulnerability indices. This information has been grouped together in a GIS-type computer resource.
After introducing and combining data from these three areas, one could say that several conclusions emerge: how has the heritage protected by rehabilitation been distributed, how have subsidies been distributed in vulnerable areas and from what call comes the rehabilitation grants.
