||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 is an appendix to deliverable is number 5 of 5 in Work Package 5, the Synthesis Report. The aim of work package 5 is to ensure that any mass scale retrofit mechanism designed by the consortium addresses the key needs of the end customer, the building occupant. seeks to conclude Work Package 5 with a summary of the previous deliverables, drawing out key items of learning, highlighting areas that impact wider project aims or ideas and providing a critical evaluation of the work package as a whole.
