Embarking on a retrofit journey? Our experienced team of assessors will help you make well-informed decisions to avoid the common pitfalls and unintended consequences that often happen in a retrofit project.
Whether you complete your retrofit in one go or take it step by step over a number of years, it’s a once in a generation opportunity to make your home fit for the future. You’re making a significant investment of time, energy and finances, so it’s important your works are executed well and give you the best possible result. We can help you with this journey.
CAfS offers free support to take you through the ideas stage. Our paid-for services begin with our home energy audit – the Home Retrofit Planner (HRP). Our HRP considers the property and its unique characteristics, your ideas, intentions and budget. It details the starting point and the range of options available.
These options can be discussed with your assessor so that you can make the key decisions on the works you’ll do. This is the ‘scope of works’ process. You’ll receive a Bespoke Retrofit Plan (formerly Scope of Works) report, which identifies and summarises your preferred list of measures. It will inform anyone involved in your retrofit.
These steps lay the foundations for your retrofit journey. They ensure decisions are based on a detailed energy model, followed by advice from specialists where required.
Our new design and contracting support service is currently being trialled by clients who have already received their Home Retrofit Planner and Bespoke Retrofit Plan reports. In 2023, we’ll be developing further services to help homeowners through the on-site works and handover phases.
