What are Retrofit Assessement services?

Retrofit Assessement Services are a great way to make your property more energy-efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly.

This involves making improvements to older buildings that weren’t included when it was built, such as replacing old heating systems, upgrading ventilation and air quality, installing renewable technologies, or improving insulation.

A domestic retrofit assessment looks at all elements of a building, from its architectural design to its construction and structural integrity. We’ll also evaluate the current condition of the premises, uncovering any concerns like water damage, condensation or mould.

What is the scope of the Retrofit process?

At the core of our process lies a comprehensive assessment of dwellings for retrofitting, helping to identify and evaluate potential improvement options. We monitor each project closely, striving to reach insulation goals while reducing thermal bridging.

Our measures are designed to deliver air-tightness in the building envelope and establish a safe moisture balance throughout all elements.

In addition, we provide metering and monitoring systems for energy efficiency promotion as well as advice about improvements tailored to individual homes. Finally, our experts will give their final approval on handover after careful commissioning.

What roles are within the retrofit process?

Retrofit Advisor
Our knowledgeable and friendly advisors are here to help you with all aspects of your Retrofit Assessment Services, including evaluating improvement options and selecting the right energy efficient measures. We can also design the retrofit to meet your needs, as well as offer tips on how best to operate your home after the retrofit is complete.

Retrofit Assessors
Retrofit Assessors are equipped with the training and knowledge required to conduct retrofit assessments in line with PAS 2035. This includes generating a RdSAP assessment, creating an in-depth floor plan, producing a condition report, and carrying out an occupancy assessment.

Retrofitting older Buildings & the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)

By 2030, all commercial buildings will need to reach an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of at least B. To help you along the way, the government has proposed a stepping stone with an EPC C target by 2027 – giving you plenty of time to make those energy-saving improvements.

Retrofit Assessment Services can play a crucial role in helping older buildings to meet the MEES requirements and improve their overall energy efficiency ( EPC Rating ). Property owners and landlords should consider retrofitting measures as a means of complying with the MEES regulations while also reducing energy consumption and costs over the long term.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some of the most common types of Retrofit Assessment Services?

Some common types of Retrofit Assessment Services include energy audits, building envelope assessments, HVAC system evaluations, lighting assessments, water efficiency audits, and renewable energy feasibility studies.

What is a Retrofit EPC?

A Retrofit EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) is a certificate that assesses the energy efficiency of a building after it has undergone energy-saving upgrades or retrofits. The certificate provides information on the energy efficiency rating of the building and recommendations for further improvements to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. It is a useful tool for building owners and tenants to understand the energy performance of their property and make informed decisions about energy efficiency measures.

What is the Government doing to support Retrofitting

The Government has implemented several initiatives to support retrofitting of buildings in order to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. Some of these initiatives include:

1. Green Homes Grant – The Green Homes Grant scheme provides homeowners and landlords with vouchers to cover two-thirds of the cost of eligible energy efficiency and low carbon heating improvements, up to a maximum of £5,000 per household.

2. Energy Company Obligation (ECO) – The ECO scheme requires larger energy suppliers to provide funding for energy efficiency measures in homes, particularly targeting low-income households.

3. Public sector funding – The Government has provided funding for retrofitting projects in public sector buildings, such as schools and hospitals, to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

4. Grant funding for local authorities – The Government has provided grant funding to local authorities to support energy efficiency improvements in homes and public buildings.

5. Green Finance – The Government has introduced green finance initiatives, such as the Green Finance Strategy and the Green Finance Institute, to support investment in energy efficiency measures and retrofitting projects.

Overall, the Government is committed to supporting retrofitting initiatives in order to meet its carbon reduction targets and improve the energy efficiency of buildings across the country.

How can Retrofit Assessment Services help meet MEES requirements?

Retrofit Assessment Services can help older buildings meet the MEES requirements by identifying energy-saving improvements that can be made to the building. By implementing these measures, property owners and landlords can improve the energy efficiency of their buildings and comply with the MEES regulations.

What roles are involved in the Retrofit process?

The Retrofit process involves several key roles, including:

     – Retrofit Advisor: Helps evaluate improvement options and select energy-efficient measures.

     – Retrofit Assessor: Conducts assessments in line with PAS 2035.

     – Retrofit Coordinator: Manages retrofit projects to meet PAS 2035 standards.
