  1. 1. Maintaining and reusing in tourism accommodation construction in Baixo Tâmega Valley Jorge Pinto, Isabel Bentes, Cristina Reis, Paula Luísa, Sandra Pereira, Zięba Zofia, Anabela Paiva
  2. 2. Introduction • Fortunately, the rehabilitation of the Portuguese city centres is already a reality. • And it is also reaching the rural areas. • In fact, interesting rehabilitation processes have been occurring in these areas. • The Baixo Tâmega Valley is one of these areas, and is getting more attention in terms of tourism.

  4. 4. Introduction • In a rehabilitation process, it is a good building practice to keep, as possible, the traditional: materials, elements, technics, colours and finishing types, among other practices. • Generally, a traditional rural building in this region is characterised by having a simple architectural solution, often having two floors. • Granite, timber and ceramic tiles are the primary building materials. In Most of the cases granite and timber are local. • These types of traditional buildings are resilient.
  5. 5. Introduction • The building industry is responsible for considerable environmental impacts due to its consumption of resources and energy and the production of wastes. • Circular Economy, can significantly improve the sustainability of this sector.
  6. 6. Introduction • The development and use of alternative construction materials, • the development of circular business models, • smart cities, • Industry 4.0 and their relations with Circular Economy, • are the current research hotspots that may be considered as potential research topics.
  7. 7. Introduction • The Circular Economy paradigm proposes to change the current production and consumption pattern of "take-make-dispose" that threatens the sustainability of human life on earth and is approaching the planetary boundaries. • Steps in this direction require closing the loops by reusing wastes and resources • and slowing material loops by developing long-lasting, reusable products.
  8. 8. Introduction • Deconstruction also encompasses various environmental, social and economic benefits, and can be more cost-effective than conventional demolition. • Deconstruction, unlike demolition, generates high quality low cost reusable materials for many applications.
  9. 9. Some rehabilitation processes in this region • There are already several tourism accommodation complexes in the Baixo Tâmega Valley. • Most of them are based on wine farms and in traditional rural buildings.
  10. 10. Some maintaining and reusing building practises • In general, the granite masonry walls are maintained. • Additional granite units may be required and reusing may be an option. • Granite masonry walls, timber pavements, roofs, tabique partition walls and ceramic tiles can be kept and partially repaired when required. • The rainwater drainage system of the roof can be kept and upgraded by reusing old ones, in the example by one made from copper and purchased locally.
  11. 11. Some maintaining and reusing building practises • Traditional steel gates can be also reused. • A structural reinforcement was done by reusing a steel profile as a column. • Second-hand kitchen cabinets are also possible to use in a rehabilitation process.

  14. 14. Examples of used building materials and components available in the local market • A wide range of used building materials and components are available in local markets. • In general, they result from the renovation or demolition of building processes. • Certain companies operate in this sector. • Timber elements such as beams or boards that resulted from demolitions are also available.
  15. 15. Examples of used building materials and components available in the local market • Structural elements such as profiles, bars, trusses, stairs, sheets, and grills, among other elements can also be found. • When the steel structure connection is bolted, the respective elements tend to present an almost intact state of conservation.
  16. 16. Some considerations • Maintaining and reusing rehabilitation building practices may contribute to protecting traditional building solutions. • As it was stated above, there is already an implemented market of used building materials and components. • If this type of company is local, it is even more appealing.
  17. 17. Some considerations • On the other hand, there are several limitations and concerns regarding this type of material or components: • the quantities, and the deterioration of the used building component (geometrical and material) • These limitations can be solved depending on the scale of the rehabilitation process. • In fact, the limitations of the quantity may be less critical when rehabilitating a single building.
  18. 18. Conclusions • The trend of rehabilitation has already arrived in rural and low- density population areas. • Dwellings are some of the buildings that have been under this type of building process. • Some of them have been transformed into tourism accommodations. • It has been occurring an increasing interest in rural tourism.
  19. 19. Conclusions • There has been concerns in maintaining the traditional building in these rehabilitation processes. • Fortunately, respect in terms of heritage has been occurring. • In some cases, a part of maintaining and reusing building materials or components has also been noticed. • This building practice main be economically advantageous and may contribute to a more sustainable building behaviour. • Several companies are already operating in the used materials market, and a wide range of options is also available.
