Building on its existing refurbishment and conservation expertise, PDP London is one of the first practices to have invested in specialised in-house Retrofit Coordinator training, which is in line with the recommendations of Each Home Counts (also known as the Bonfield Review). In this “long read” article we reflect on the role of the Retrofit Coordinator in achieving the UK carbon reduction standards and comment on the Quality Mark proposed for domestic retrofit. The article also presents an update on the development of the associated retrofit standards, provided by a member of the Each Home Counts Implementation Board Peter Rickaby.
