Raising the Standards of Retrofit:
Why is PAS 2035 Needed?
PAS 2035 was published in May 2019 following the Each Home Counts Review, which uncovered systemic failures and poor standards in retrofit delivery.
These failures can result in expensive problems being left behind, often resulting in issues such as damp, mould and condensation. When we make buildings more airtight without ventilating them properly, these problems are all too common.
Recognising the challenges ahead, the Each Home Counts review recommended an industry-wide code of practice. This led to the development and publication of PAS 2035 in 2019.
