Retrofit SolutionsAt Retrofit Solutions we provide a range of business-to-business services to help deliver carbon savings through high quality domestic retrofit. We are fully aware that the positive movement towards whole house retrofit is associated with increased requirements in the standards of both design and installation. Incorporating mandatory ventilation improvements, for example. Ventilation is a complex topic and in order to deliver a compliant system, you need to both understand ventilation and have the correct qualifications and competencies to deliver it. It takes time to build up a team that can do this, so why not use us in the interim? Maybe you are smaller installer who just wants to outsource that element of delivery? If so, we can help! We have trained and competent individuals who can review your Ventilation Assessment, ventilation strategies and designs or even do them for you. Delivered through our VENTILATIONcheck service we can even visit the properties and test and commission any mechanical fans you have installed – producing compliant paperwork for both you and the householder. And most importantly giving you complete peace of mind. We are there to support you through the compliance journey, taking away some of the strain through our coaching and advisory services. We can even supply Retrofit Assessment and Retrofit Coordinator Services too. At Retrofit Solutions, we know compliance and are here to assist you every step of the way.
