This document describes the rehabilitation of the GeneralSecretariat Information Systems (GSIS building) and the description of the energy measures that were implemented aiming at the improvement of the buildingenergy performance and the indoor environmental conditions. Prior to any rehabilitation works, feasibility studies and monitoring were carried out to assess the existing indoor environmental conditions.The rehabilitation of the GSIS building was carried out within the frames of the European REVIVAL project (Retrofitting for Environmental Viability Improvement of Valued Architectural landmarks) that is financially supported by the European Commission under the 5th Framework ENERGIE Programme. The overall goal of the project is the refurbishment of non-domestic buildings from the post-war pre-energy conscious era, aiming at better energy performance and lower life-cycle CO2 emissions than the original building or an equivalent new building.The project started in April 2003 and runs for 5 years.
