Course description

Domestic Retrofit

Our Domestic Retrofit course is your entry point to retrofit, providing you with the key foundations for delivering successful retrofit Programs.

Decarbonisation of our existing housing stock is a pivotal step on the road to Net Zero Carbon by 2050, and widely acknowledged to be one of the biggest challenges on this journey.

With large scale retrofit Programs carrying a potential cost of £11.7bn per year, there is an acute need to build market capacity to deliver, to ensure money is well spent, whilst mitigating unintended consequences.
