Clients of CAfS’ Home Retrofit Planner can now receive a full scope of works meeting and report as a follow up service. This step follows the energy assessment and report already carried out on several homes in Cumbria.

Two clients have already had their scope of works online meetings and will receive their reports soon. They will then move on to the Design step and from there to the choice of suitable contractors and retrofit work on site. 

If you already have a Home Retrofit Planner report from CAfS, there is now the option to continue to the next step in the CAfS retrofit advice service: 

Scope of Works 

The Scope of Works stage consists of the following: 

  1. An online meeting with a CAfS assessor to discuss the options from the Home Retrofit Planner report that you decide to take forward.
  2. A report based on the outcome of the online meeting which, when complete and confirmed forms the basis of future work.

What’s in the report? 

The report outlines: 

  • Preparatory work that may be required such as Structural advice, planning permission, building control, party wall arrangements, etc.
  • Building fabric options and some of the related things you may need to know, whether design work is recommended, key risks, interaction with other measures, etc. 
  • Building services options such as ventilation and heating systems or renewable technologies, and measures that you would consider in conjunction with these. 
  • Future plans, if you are not doing all the work in one go, or if there are things you might like to progress later.
    Other things you may need to consider.
