for the sustainable management of Historic Built Areas
The preservation of built heritage needs a model that is environmentally, economically and socially sustainable.
The BhENEFIT project focused on improving the management of historic built areas, combining the daily maintenance of historic heritage with its preservation and valorisation in a sustainable way.
The project found innovative solutions on how to evaluate the use and historical value of built areas and how to optimise building performances (its energy efficiency and structural behavioural increase).
The BhENEFIT methodology was validated by 12 partners in 7 different areas, which are related to specific issues (earthquake, pollution, touristic flows, energy efficiency etc.). New tools like action plans and ICT implementations were developed to increase the cooperation among stakeholdrs involved in sustainable management of Historic Built Areas, enhance their awareness and skills, increase availability of data and information, monitor and plan through effective tools.
The project delivered a long-term perspective for minimising emergency actions through a comprehensive monitoring strategy, which aims at the planned preservation of cultural heritage. To implement such strategy, BhENEFIT built management capacities, involved and coordinated relevant players from the public and private sectors and provided them with new innovative methodologies GIS and BIM based.

know THE ISSUES and plan solutions
BhENEFIT project developed useful tools based on GIS and BIM technologies, to help the monitoring process, data collection and the plan of intervention for a more sustainable management.
BUILD THE COMMUNITY
Being part of Interreg Central Europe network, we believe that Cooperation is Central : that's why BhENEFIT project aims to raise awareness of its goals and results both at local and European level, to achieve better solutions together in the protection and sustainable use of natural resources and cultural heritage.
BhENEFIT Project aims to the publication of scientific articles related to GIS and BIM innovative deployments.
