    Abstract

    The research was funded by the “Call for Ideas” – Internationalisation Programmes – the first Triennial Programme for the Region of Basilicata/University, Italy. This chapter provides a detailed description of the Lion Chambers building, including the copies of original, previously unpublished, architectural plans and of the layout of reinforcement bars in the concrete foundations, columns, slabs, external walls and roof, and the photographs of the current condition of the building exterior and interior taken by the author in April 2011. The chapter also includes an overview of the condition assessments and the preservation actions on the Lion Chambers to date. In addition, it provides a summary of recent research on assessing the condition of reinforced concrete and selecting appropriate repair options. Finally, a proposal for sustainable restoration and refurbishment of the building has been outlined to improve its energy efficiency, generate energy from renewable sources and reduce carbon emissions.
