What is a Retrofit Advisor?

Retrofit advisors give independent guidance to homeowners and residents, helping them understand retrofit and which options are available for their homes. They often work alongside retrofit coordinators, providing an important link between the people working on a property and those living in it.

Retrofit advisors are among the first to be engaged when new work begins. They will establish the project’s needs and budget, and work with the retrofit coordinator to determine intended outcomes. Many remain involved in resident engagement throughout the assessment, design and planning stages of an installation.

This job is mainly about communication, keeping residents engaged and minimising disruption. In short, they are the eyes and ears on the ground.
