The Retrofit Academy Awards 2022: Retrofit Installer of the Year

Congratulations Bow Tie Construction!

One of the most fiercely contested categories of our inaugural Retrofit Academy Awards, and what a selection of contenders our Judging panel had to choose from! But with a special commendation for EQUANS, it was Bow Tie Construction who cinched top place.

Our Judges’ criteria:

  • Innovative and effective installation, commissioning, and handover.
  • A client-centric approach to delivering retrofit.
  • Evidence of strategic commitment to driving the whole house retrofit agenda more widely.

The team at Bow Tie Construction demonstrated fantastic attention to detail and quality that is scalable, with an emphasis on the quality of living for their clients. Our Judges’ noted this excellent client-centric approach, alongside the positive initiatives Bow Tie Construction employ to improve the quality of life of residents. The Judges’ also commented that it was great to see a new SME contractor bringing a high-quality whole house deep retrofit experience to the social housing sector that can be scaled up.

From all here at The Retrofit Academy: This award, and we in the retrofit community, are witness to the dedication, hard work, and socially-conscious responsibility displayed by your team. Well done!

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 Retrofit Installer of the Year: Bow Tie Construction!

“I think the most important thing anyone can have is passion. It’s what I look for when I’m recruiting people to join Bow Tie. Do they have a passion for sustainability? Passion for the environment? And then, how does that manifest in the work that they do?”
