Retrofit Coordination

PAS 2035 is a crucial standard for domestic retrofit projects in the UK, outlining the requirements for improving the energy efficiency of buildings and reducing their carbon footprint. It is particularly important for publicly funded projects, as compliance with the standard ensures that public money is spent effectively and efficiently on energy retrofits that will deliver significant carbon savings.

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) fully supports the PAS 2035 specification, which provides a framework for ensuring that retrofit works are carried out to a high standard. The standard emphasizes the whole-house approach to retrofitting, which takes into account the interactions between different energy-saving measures and the building's overall energy performance. This approach ensures that the retrofit measures are effective, efficient, and sustainable over the long term. 

To demonstrate compliance with PAS 2035, installers and assessors must register with TrustMark, the government-endorsed quality scheme for the retrofit sector. TrustMark provides a way for clients to find reputable installers and assessors who have the necessary skills, knowledge, and experience to carry out energy retrofits to a high standard. By using TrustMark registered businesses, publicly funded projects can be confident that their retrofit works are compliant with PAS 2035, with appropriate safeguards in place to ensure quality and compliance.

The retrofit coordinator is a key role in the energy retrofit process, as outlined in the PAS 2035 standard. The retrofit coordinator is responsible for managing the overall retrofit project, from the initial assessment of the building's energy performance to the design and installation of energy-saving measures, as well as the monitoring and verification of the retrofit's performance. 

The retrofit coordinator ensures that the energy retrofit works are carried out to a high standard and that they are effective, efficient, and sustainable in the long term. This requires a thorough understanding of the building's energy performance and the interactions between different measures, enabling them to formulate a risk assessment, medium-term improvement plans, and option evaluations. 

Working closely with assessors, designers, clients, and stakeholders, the retrofit coordinator ensures that the retrofit project is delivered in compliance with PAS 2035 and achieves the intended outcomes. They ensure that all parties involved in the retrofit project have the necessary skills, knowledge, and experience to carry out their roles effectively. Acting as a single point of contact for the building owner and other parties involved in the retrofit project, they streamline communication and ensure everyone is aligned with the project goals. 

The importance of the retrofit coordinator role lies in their ability to effectively manage the retrofit project, ensuring it delivers the expected energy and carbon savings in the long term. They also ensure that the retrofit works are carried out safely and that appropriate quality control measures are in place to comply with relevant standards and regulations. 

Overall, the role of the retrofit coordinator is crucial to the success of energy retrofit projects, ensuring they are delivered to a high standard, meet the requirements of PAS 2035, and achieve real energy and carbon savings in the long term. 

At the end of the project, the Retrofit Coordinator lodges the project with TrustMark to demonstrate that the PAS 2035 process has been properly followed, ensuring that the retrofit works are carried out safely and to a high standard.
