||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 3a of 7 in Work Package 3. It discusses a technical solutions matrix used to identify the interventions most likely to maximise impact, ranked in order of effectiveness:
It also analyses how retrofit measures should be bundled to maximise impact in terms of performance, cost effectiveness, waste reduction and minimisation of disruption.
