The Retrofit Academy Awards 2022, celebrated all things retrofit! Bringing together the individuals, teams, organisations and projects that represented retrofit excellence over the past year.

We had the opportunity to speak to each of this year’s winners, listen to our conversation with our Large Project of the Year winner: Robert Lambe, Melius Homes

“It’s a huge opportunity for individuals to get involved, a huge opportunity for individuals to make a big difference. It’s also the big global challenge that we have, around climate change and our impact. So there’s never been a more exciting and meaningful time to be involved in not just the construction sector, but the retrofit sector.“
