Haico van Nunen
He studied building and renovation at Eindhoven University (1999). Afterwards he did a PhD research on the effects of flexibility on the sustainability of a building. This resulted in the thesis ‘Assessment of the sustainability of flexible building’ on which the impact of the lifespan of a building is analyzed in relation to refurbishments through time (2010).
Within BouwhulpGroep his focus lies at sustainability in its broadest way, including the possible impact of energy reduction, and what happens with the materials used. For housing associations his current task is to elaborate portfolio solutions: what do they have to do with all their buildings regarded in time, and what levels of renovation are suitable? With portfolio advise, he brings order in the portfolio, so the housing association can make choices towards the future.
