Update: We are currently working with Innovate UK on our retrofit and regeneration workshops. More information can be found here.

 

Retrofit for the Future was a competition coordinated by Innovate UK and concluding in 2014. Retrofit for the Future catalysed the retrofit of over 100 homes across the UK, with an ambition of achieving an 80% reduction in the in-use COemissions of each property. The competition encouraged collaboration between housing providers, designers, contractors and researchers, and has helped to stimulate new business opportunities in the retrofit market.

 

Watch the video below to learn more about the competition and how some of the residents of the homes felt about the project.

 

There are also a number of infographics produced to support the project on carbon emissions, energy costs and comfort.

Significant research was completed as part of the project. UKGBC are hosting the project reports and outputs plus a wide range of other material on retrofit. The three reports can be found below.

 

 

 

UKGBC is also hosting the raw data and cleansed reports, which can be downloaded in bulk.
