Abstract

This paper examines the development of cost estimates for the renovation of buildings damaged by the earthquake that struck the region of Abruzzo in April 2009. The study begins with experience of the authors as the figures responsible for the “Economic Feasibility of Proposed Works” as part of the activities supporting the reconstruction study and project developed by the Architettura Department at the D’Annunzio University of Chieti-Pescara. The analysis concentrates on the main procedures employed to attain the estimate of financial investments necessary for the reconstruction of eleven towns in the provinces of L’Aquila and Pescara. The objectives of producing a trustworthy cost estimate, a transparency of decision-making and rapid schedule of implementation were forced to confront an inevitably incomplete framework of understanding regarding the nature and form of plans for reconstruction. This situation was further aggravated by an articulated and complex system of normative restrictions governing the distribution of financial contributions.
