Retrofit Pilot Scheme

Kirklees MBC

Nature of Work Undertaken

We were appointed to provide multi-disciplinary lead designer services for the retrofitting of 8 houses seen as a flagship pilot scheme by Kirklees Council. The aim is to create a Kirklees standard, to allow a programme of retrofitting to their current portfolio of properties (approx 3,500), tackling fuel poverty by making the existing properties more thermally efficient with a fabric first approach.

Our designs include the following measures for incorporation:

  • Removal of cold bridges – existing chimneys being removed to the underside of the roof.
  • Upgrade thermal envelope
  • EWI applied to all elevations with a render finish
  • Triple glazing
  • High performance doors to give a better U value
  • Solar PV panels
  • Enhanced insulation:- Within the roof space we are introducing additional insulation to ensure that any cold spots or paths are minimised to ensure as much heat is kept in the house as possible.
