Testing a multi-value approach to support decision making in renovation in the pre-design phase: A housing area in Sweden from the 1940s.
Paper in proceeding, 2013

The aim of the paper is to describe and discuss the development and implementation of a multi-value framework and its potential to support complex and integrated decision making in the pre-design phase in renovation of housing stocks. A case of a 1940s housing area in Gothenburg, Sweden, is presented where a transdisciplinary team is involved. A conceptual multi-value model has been developed which then is translated into a strategy matrix. Results show that the approach is a forthcoming way to support decision making in renovation.
