    This paper describes the use of simulations to support the renovation process of a monastery, that is listed as an historic building and is being re-used as an office building. No simulations were used in the creative phase of the process, partly because no suitable simulation tools are available. In the other phases of the design, several software tools were used to answer different kinds of questions. The paper describes the ways in which these tools were used and makes recommendations for consultants and software developers.
