Ecobuild 2014: Delivering Responsible Retrofit – using DECC/STBA Guidance Wheel & Knowledge Centre
Neil May, Technical Lead and Co-Chair, Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance talked at Ecobuild 2014 about delivering responsible retrofit – using the DECC/STBA Guidance Wheel and Knowledge Centre.
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.
