Welcome to Sustaining Towers, an interactive web site which can provide you with practical advice on refurbishing tower blocks.

Our aim is to facilitate the regeneration of the 3000+ residential high rise blocks in the UK with proposals for sustainable solutions integrating environmental, social and economic criteria.

 

The Design Guide found on this website is an interactive tool that you can use to obtain sustainable refurbishment solutions tailored to the particular issues of a specific tower block. The design guide also acts as a checklist for you to review as an outline of typical issues that arise with tower blocks. The Design Guide offers approximate costs for sustainable strategies, so that you can appreciate the economic benefits and compare the investment cost of varying solutions.
