The Retrofit Academy Awards 2022 will recognise excellence in retrofitting across the market, from Retrofit Coordinators, to installers, social landlords and individual projects. We will also recognise the Rising Stars in this exciting, vibrant market, at a crucially important time for our industry.
The awards will be presented at one of the biggest events of the year for professionals in the built environment, Futurebuild 2023 at London’s ExCel on Tuesday 7 March 2023 and are free to attend with informal attire welcome.
These awards were born as we want to recognise hard work and dedication to outstanding retrofitting projects across the UK, of which there have been many!
“Winning one of these awards will identify the best our industry has to offer. They recognise excellence across the twin challenges of increasing the quality and the scale of retrofit in the UK. They will identify the leading professionals making their mark in the PAS 2035 era – and the projects that demonstrate that good practice and good value are not mutually exclusive.”
