Ecobuild 2014: Effective solutions for retrofitting: retaining character & improving energy efficiency
Roger Curtis, Technical Research Manager, Historic Scotland talks at Ecobuild 2014 about effective solutions for retrofitting: retaining character and improving energy efficiency.
The challenge of refurbishing traditional, heritage and protected properties is to improve their energy efficiency whilst retaining the aesthetics, character and features of the buildings and achieving this at an acceptable cost. However with the scale of retrofit required a responsible approach is imperative. This session will give an understanding of which measures carry the most benefit and least risk in terms of rebound effects and unintended consequences and how a robust approach to retrofit can be achieved whilst retaining character.
