||This project looked at designing a supply chain solution to improve the energy efficiency of the vast majority of the 26 million UK homes which will still be in use by 2050.It looked to identify ways in which the refurbishment and retrofitting of existing residential properties can be accelerated by industrialising the processes of design, supply and implementation, while stimulating demand from householders by exploiting additional opportunities that come with extensive building refurbishment.The project developed a top-to-bottom process, using a method of analysing the most cost-effective package of measures suitable for a particular property, through to how these will be installed with the minimum disruption to the householder. This includes identifying the skills required of the people on the ground as well as the optimum material distribution networks to supply them with exactly what is required and when.
This deliverable is number 4 of 8 in Work Package 4. The report builds on prior work in Work Package 4 together with taking inputs from WP3.4b (Single Dwelling Implementation Plan) and WP5.4 (Consumer Engagement) to test out 5 models of supply chain design against the requirements of consumer segments with whom a successful retrofit engagement is most likely. On site approaches to deliver the basic and enhance retrofit packages designed in WP3.4b are presented with the conclusion that most can be delivered in 3 – 5 days stretching to 7 days for the most complicated. The report proposes that a national franchise model for retrofit is the most appropriate for the successful up-take of mass retrofit.
