A new legal regime on the rehabilitation of buildings was approved thus replacing the temporary regime that has been applicable so far.

This new legal regime lays down the principles applicable to rehabilitation projects, such as the principle of protection and enhancement of the existing real estate, the principle of environmental preservation and the principle of proportional and progressive improvement.

New technical rules are also established covering safety features, such as protection against fire or earthquake, as well other features that enhance the construction’s quality, such as thermal behaviour and energy efficiency and acoustic behaviour.
