Retrofit Assessments & Co-ordination

What is Retrofit?​:

In this instance, Residential Retrofitting largely refers to improvements that are necessary for older properties to improve their energy efficiency. This can be achieved by implementing a number of measures and could include replacing a heating system, improving the ventilation and air quality, utilising renewable technologies, improving insulation or all of these. The aim of Retrofit Assessments and programmes is to have a qualified team of experts in place to carry out these changes, manage the process, and provide a handover to the property owner upon completion. The property will then be more energy efficient, cost effective and ultimately greener to benefit the environment we live in.
