Retrofit Solutions 2011 – renovating the UK housing stock for a sustainable future

Retrofit Solutions 2011 will focus on overcoming the challenges preventing the retrofitting of large housing stock to meet government targets for carbon emissions.

There are four main areas that should be addressed in order to productively implement this redevelopment, which will be addressed with a combination of case studies, presentations and focused, solution driven roundtable discussions:

• Improving community engagement
• Advancing technical knowledge
• Building capacity for implementation
• Funding the process

The building of supply chains will be facilitated with a number of networking sessions to allow delegates to make contacts across the whole value chain.

Why attend
Retrofit Solutions 2011 will bring together 150–200 experts in the developing field of domestic retrofitting to facilitate the building of supply chains and hear from experts in the field about overcoming some of the biggest challenges to the implementation of this process.

Delegates will leave the event:
• Having made contacts at all levels of the value chain
• Having inputted to discussions and presented ideas and possibilities to all other attendees
• Having heard from some of the country’s pioneers in the arena of large scale retrofitting

Topics covered include:
• Case studies from Birmingham and Manchester City Councils
• Government policy now and looking to the future
• Case studies of projects from retrofit for the future
• Methods of achieving strong community engagement
• Building effective and economic supply chains
