Retrofit Professional Forum

Bringing together professionals from across the retrofit industry to share knowledge and best practice, for safe, high-quality retrofit.

24th February 2022

Retrofit Quality:
Are we still building customer confidence?

The Retrofit Professional Forums embodies a union between the past Retrofit Academy quarterly summits, and monthly PAS Clubs, bringing together the industry to share knowledge, best practice, advice and guidance on topical issues for practicing and training retrofitters! 

  • ‘Each Home Counts’ Five Years On: Our Report Card
    A high-level review of the past five years, and the true impacts of TrustMark and putting the PAS into practice. To what extent was the Every Home Counts vision for retrofit delivered?

    Keynote Speaker: 

    Dr. Peter Bonfield, Author of the Each Home Counts Review

    Panel Debate: Are we heading in the right direction?

    Panel Speakers:

    Derek Horrocks, Chair, NIA

    Colin King, Independent Consultant

  • Are we enabling the right professional behaviours for quality retrofit?
    A key pillar of PAS 2035 is the professionalisation of retrofit. The PAS makes it very clear what the role of a Retrofit Assessor, Coordinator and Designer should be. But is the market and quality assurance regime enabling theory to become reality?


    Becky Lane, CEO & Founder, Furbnow

    Carl Harvey, Retrofit Coordinator, Osmosis ACD

    Stuart Fairlie, Managing Director, Elmhurst Energy

  • Should Retrofit Assessor and Coordinator be independent of the installer on SHDF projects?
    Whether Retrofit Coordinators should be independent of the installer has been much debated in the evolution of the PAS 2035. Projects delivered under early waves of the SHDF programme have shared some learning that independent retrofit professionals were considered vital to success. Is this the logical way forwards? Or can the one-stop-shop model offered by contractors be made to work?
