Original Abstract

The decision makers in urban planning face very often a dilemma whether to demolish or retrofit old buildings. Such a dilemma had to be solved during the reconstruction of the campus of the Faculty of Information Technologies at the Brno University of Technology. One of the buildings on the campus (a building that used to be a brewery) was in a really bad shape and the question was whether to demolish it and build a new building instead or to put effort and resources into its retrofit. At that time the Brno University of Technology became a participant in the EU 6th framework project BRITA in PuBs (Bringing Retrofit Innovation to Application in Public Buildings). The decision was made to retrofit the former brewery into a social and culture within the framework of the demonstration part of the BRITA project. The retrofit of the brewery involved a complete change of the building use profile and all the building systems had to be designed from scratch. Sophisticated control and monitoring of the building equipment by means of the Building Management System is used in the Brewery.
