Historic building refurbishment market is expanding and it creates a demand for suitable materials, retrofitting techniques and research for this type of buildings. The differences between refurbishment of new buildings and buildings with historical value are insufficiently recognized today and there is a lack of research on specifics of historic buildings, when due to the valuable building outlook, authentic constructions or traditional materials only some of the retrofit techniques are allowed. In this article the possible retrofit measures are studied and compared. The scientific method for the refurbishment of historic buildings is described. The method is applied in case study of Panemunė castle, which after renovation will be used as a public building, and Raudonė castle, which is used as a school. The article was prepared according to the project material VAT-57/2012 “Innovative methods of regeneration of architectural heritage: castles of Panemune”.

Keywords:historic buildings; retrofit; energy performance.
