The AECB's new Retrofit Standard drives increasing comfort and energy performance; it engages and upskills construction professionals to adopt and deliver higher performance targets for retrofit projects. The self-certification process provides an affordable QA route to ensure the intended outcomes.
It encourages the UK construction industry to decarbonise. We must prioritise the retrofitting of existing buildings at scale to meet 2050 environmental targets, as outlined in the Paris Agreement.
Comfort, health, and energy savings
- A future-proofed increase in winter and summer internal comfort levels.
- Better indoor air quality resulting in personal health benefits and ultimately national healthcare savings.
- Low running costs with a minimal energy performance gap.
- Energy savings at reduced cost per tonne of C02 saved.
The AECB Retrofit Standard is for those wishing to modernise buildings to a high standard and minimise the performance gap. It provides a structured path to delivering Net Zero.
