A1.1 – Reference Report for the Design and Selection of Technical CriteriaDecembre 31, 2018This deliverable contains an initial analysis of the general characteristics of the buildings that may be used to implement and test Nature-Based Solutions (NBS).See moreThe criteria have been grouped into two main categories to assist in the selection of buildings for demonstration: exclusive and inclusive criteria. The first ones must be used to carry out initial filtering and remove from the initial inventory those buildings that are not susceptible to housing the proposed NBS. Subsequently, the inclusive criteria are used so that their evaluation in each building prioritizes the most suitable buildings for the demonstration, among which the appropriate one will be chosen in each location.
A1.2 – Report on Building Inventory and SamplingFebruary 28, 2019This deliverable gathers the results from the inventorying work and sampling of educational and social buildings from the project sites (municipality of Porto, Comunidade de Alentejo Central and province of Badajoz).See moreThe works of inventory and choice of buildings start from a matrix of choices made ad hoc for the project. The matrix was made available to the partners to include the different candidate buildings in it, and to score them objectively and automatically.
In the matrix, all eligible schools have been placed in rows, and in the columns are the different criteria. Non-compliance with the exclusion criteria (see the A1.1 deliverable) determined a score of “0”. In the case of the inclusive, different scales were established by virtue of the greater or lesser compliance with the requirement. In the final column, we do the sum of all the scores. In this automatic and objective way, an orderly selection is made.
A1.3 – Favorable permit grant reportJune 28, 2019This deliverable gathers the administrative authorizations needed to implement the different NBS in the project pilot buildings.See moreDue to the different casuistry existing in each of the 3 cases (Badajoz, Évora and Porto), the authorizations are different.
Porto’s school is owned by the municipality of Porto (beneficiary partner), so no authorization is required (property certificate is included).
For the school based in Central Alentejo, an agreement between CIMAC and the municipality of Evora, where the pilot building is located, was needed.
The school based in the province of Badajoz needed authorizations granted by the regional authority (Junta de Extremadura) and the municipality of Solana de los Barros to carry out the project actions.
