THE RENOVATION OF HISTORIC BUILDINGS OFTEN REQUIRES THE OUTER SHELL TO BE INSULATED. HOWEVER, SUCH TASKS ARE NOT ALWAYS COMPATIBLE WITH THE HISTORICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BUILDING. A STUDIES CARRIED OUT ON INTERIOR INSULATION AT THE OLD VETERINARY SCHOOL HAVE BROUGHT THE RISKS INHERENT TO SUCH WORKS TO LIGHT, AS WELL AS THEIR POTENTIAL IMPACT ON THE PROTECTION OF THE BUILDING'S MONUMENTAL FAÇADES IN BRICK, EUVILLE LIMESTONE AND BLUESTONE. HISTORY OF THE VETERINARY SCHOOL IN ANDERLECHT In around 1761, the very first veterinary school was established in Lyon by Claude Bourgelat, a veterinary surgeon who was searching for a remedy for the ruminant infectious disease rinderpest, which plagued France at the time (Wikipedia, 2015). This initiative was being repeated throughout the whole of Europe by the late 18th and early 19th century. Initially, the first veterinary surgeons focused primarily on (army) horses. A veterinary school was also established in the United Netherlands in this period, in Utrecht (1821). Several years later, when Belgium seceded from the Netherlands, it quickly became clear that the gap which had been created had to be filled. There was an acute need for veterinary education, both to serve the army and to improve the indigenous cattle and horse breeds. Above all, the authorities' costs for the mandatory slaughter and monetary compensation of sick cattle were much too high and they therefore wished to focus on healing the animals instead. Two private initiatives were started as early as 1832: a limited education in veterinary medicine in Liège by Pierre-Antoine Pétry; and the École d'Économie Rurale et Vétérinaire, initiated by André-Joseph Brogniez in Binche (Bogaerts, 2015). Shortly after, Brogniez relocated his school to an old riding school in the centre of Brussels, where the Museum for Fine Arts is now located. In May 1836, this Brussels school was taken over by the authorities and reformed into the École de Médecine Vétérinaire et d'Agriculture de l'état. The original school moved to the territory belonging to Kuregem, near a rural area and the slaughterhouse in Anderlecht yet still not too far from Brussels. Brussels' urban development in the first half of the 19th century was indeed limited to the zone within the second medieval city wall. The current inner ringroad, also known as the Small Ring, follows the path of this wall. Originally, the school was nestled along what is now the Poincarélaan, on both sides of the Lesser Senne river. Regular flooding of the Senne caused a great 64 | Risk analysis for applying interior insulation in historical buildings: a case study of the former veterinary school in Anderlecht
