dcsimg Refurbishment - Ramboll Group


New buildings add only one percent to the building stock each year. The remaining 99 percent of buildings require regular renovation and refurbishment to meet the ever changing demands of society. Our wide-ranging expertise allows us to assess and meet our customer's needs -  ensuring existing buildings provide economically, socially and environmentally sustainable prospects. 
Roskilde Cathedral is on the World Heritages List. Ramboll has designed the new roof construction for the historical cathedral.

Capitalising on potential

We believe that simply maintaining the built environment and limiting deterioration is not enough. Our aim is to ensure buildings remain as living, working structures - ready to meet all the needs of current and future users - whilst minimising their impact on the environment. To achieve this goal we need to capitalise on the full potential of all existing buildings before they deteriorate and become unusable – utilising all aspects of the building.

The overall approach that is taken to renovate and refurbish any building has a significant impact on the finished product and its success at realising the aspirations of all stakeholders. We use a systematic and holistic approach to ensure the full potential of an existing building is reached.

Historic buildings

Historically significant buildings require a special approach - understanding or ‘listening’ to the building is the key. We have worked on internationally important historic buildings and sites – cooperating closely with historic building protection authorities – providing solutions that are sympathetic to the historic building fabric and minimising irreversible interventions.

Experience is often the key to successfully renovating or refurbishing an existing building. We have provided solutions to many complex and multifaceted problems in existing buildings - delivering our customer's aspirations.
