Retrofit - the Net Zero Challenge
If we are to make any significant progress towards the target of net zero carbon emissions in the built environment by 2050, then over 27 million buildings must be refurbished. One in five of them is a heritage building, over 100 years old, and they present specific challenges. This session will consider what needs to be addressed in refurbishing our building stock for net zero emissions and will include a case study looking at the refurbishment of a major Grade II listed building in central London.
What will I learn?
This session will provide insights into the technical requirements of refurbishment and retrofit for zero carbon and will provide a case study demonstrating how this has been achieved in practice on a high profile listed building, providing transferable examples for application to current projects
