Retrofit Coordinators are essential in the UK’s mission to make homes more eco-friendly with the added benefit of cheaper overall energy costs and a healthier home. They follow the guidelines of PAS 2035 to ensure projects are done right, safeguarding homeowners and clients.

In simple terms, Retrofit Coordinators oversee the entire PAS 2035 process of a project. They make sure everything from choosing materials to completing the work meets the standards for domestic retrofit projects.

Their job is to guide the project every step of the way, protecting the homeowner’s interests from start to finish. This is crucial for maintaining quality and keeping everyone involved informed.

Additionally, if you possess a university degree relevant to the built environment, you already meet the entry requirements for this course. This role is perfect for anyone passionate about ensuring sustainable and compliant retrofit projects in the UK’s housing sector.
