There are several reasons that remodeling became an emerging issue recently. First of all, mitigation of housing shortage could be one reason. Also the need for energy saving structures of buildings in response the regulations for environmental protection worldwide. Another important reason for the construction industry is that the amount of new construction projects decreased substantially after foreign exchange crisis and IMF intervention in Korea and remodeling could bring about new projects instead. In fact, it is forecasted that the demand for remodeling would increase substantially owing to strict building regulations introduced recently, and owing to its cost effectiveness that could provide new buildings at 1/3 of new construction costs. Also, the government’s preference for remodeling over reconstruction is another favorable factor.
This research project, under the assumption that remodeling needs to be promoted, evaluates the potential of housing remodeling in the market. And it analyses the constraints of social, constitutional and technical aspects that make remodeling difficult.
The concluding part of this study proposes both short-term and long-term strategies that could promote housing remodeling. And finally it suggests the aspects of remodeling which need further studies.
