Tracing the environmental impact origin within the existing building portfolio of prevailing building typologies

This article is written by Julie Rønholt, a former student helper from MT Højgaards Department of Virtual Design and Construction, and industrial Ph.D.-student Leonora Charlotte Malabi Eberhardt from MT Højgaards Department of Sustainability.
