Course Description

This one-day workshop will take participants through the retrofit process via PAS 2035 and other retrofit methodologies. The workshop will give an overview of each of the activities and the roles and responsibilities of the relevant parties. It will also look at where PAS 2035 will possibly change in a future edition. The workshop is interactive and includes exercises focused on the activities involved in the implementation of PAS 2035. It will also include the tutors own work examples.

PAS 2035 is a BSI publication on the retrofit of dwellings for energy efficiency of UK homes. Its production was commissioned by the UK Government and it is expected that Government and energy provider funded retrofit will have to comply with it.
