What is the Centre of Excellence?

The Centre of Excellence is our membership body that brings together individuals and organisations who are on a journey to deliver whole house retrofit at scale, to offer support along the way.

Listen to our CEO, David Pierpoint, explain The Academy’s goal of supporting the supply chain end-to-end with advice and guidance on shaping retrofit programmes and putting PAS 2035 into practice.

  • Putting PAS into Practice

    A key principle underpinning the Centre of Excellence is our commitment to helping you put PAS into practice in your daily work. That’s why we have developed the Retrofit Academy Centre of Excellence. Bringing together the experts at the heart of advancing retrofit best practice in the UK, this unique programme supports retrofit professionals and organisations as they implement PAS compliant retrofit measures that lead the industry.

    We are committed to delivering warm, comfy and efficient housing across the UK through PAS 2035-compliance domestic retrofit measures. To do this it’s vital that we help retrofit professionals and organisations develop the knowledge, skills, and experience you need to make this happen.

Delivering retrofit excellence

We’ve worked closely with the key stakeholders in the retrofit industry and are acutely aware of the need for a forum in which to bring together all those who share our vision of retrofit excellence. Delivering effective whole house retrofit is a significant challenge for both contractors and clients, and we are committed to playing a leading role in advancing retrofit excellence.

The Centre of Excellence is here to help retrofit professionals develop their skills and knowledge in a fast-changing industry. We provide retrofit businesses with training and support for their teams, and help organisations like social landlords and local authorities better deliver cost-effective retrofit measures that maintain the high standards required by PAS 2035.

A community of advancement

We believe that bringing together like-minded individuals and organisations with leading retrofit experts in the field is the best way to meet UK retrofit targets and also help the key players in retrofit grow and flourish in this important growth industry.

To facilitate this we have developed a comprehensive knowledge portal to help you access important technical guidance and reporting tools, and a platform to easily connect with peers and share advice and insights. The Centre of Excellence offers practical resources and guidance that we continually update based on our direct experience of delivering retrofit excellence in our daily practice. 

Moving forwards together

As well as providing a state-of-the-art knowledge access platform, we run a series of online events throughout the year, including webinars, working groups, and forums. These are just some of the benefits of becoming a member of the Retrofit Academy Centre of Excellence.
