Managing Building Refurbishment Guide

‘Low carbon refurbishment of buildings: management guide’ (CTV038) provides advice on ensuring a planned refurbishment delivers carbon savings, in addition to meeting its other objectives.

This guide is aimed at those who wish to ensure that a planned refurbishment delivers carbon savings, in addition to meeting its other objectives. It provides clear, practical guidance based on real world experience. The guide is structured around a roadmap for the refurbishment process, identifying the key intervention points during the preparation, design, construction and use phases of the project.

A key common factor in successful low carbon refurbishments is a corporate commitment to cutting carbon emissions, coupled with effective project management to ensure that this is translated into targets and approaches which ensure the low carbon objectives are met. This guide includes advice on translating the vision into the design brief, setting targets, appointing contractors, monitoring progress and making sure the refurbished building is commissioned and operated as intended.

This guide is intended to help you deliver building refurbishments that reduce operating costs, improve comfort levels, increase occupant satisfaction and enhance reputation, as well as delivering significant reductions in carbon emissions.
