In parallel, the second component related to other buildings shall take place encompassing detailed energy audits and energy certification of each building. On the basis of results obtained through the energy audits it shall be decided for how many more buildings detailed feasibility study would be necessary. In parallel with the feasibility studies phases for these larger buildings, the elaboration of design documents for less complex buildings can start. Once the decision on the modality of renovation for SIV1 is made, the elaboration of design documents could start. The detailed time plane of each component and project sequences shall be elaborated as a part of preparatory activities.
