Social Housing Toolkit

Our practical guide to help social landlords and local authorities deliver effective retrofit measures that will benefit all you and your tenants and deliver warm, comfy, and efficient homes for all.

  • Detailed retrofit guide for social housing

    The UK government has ambitious plans to improve the energy efficiency of UK housing stock by 2035, as part of its goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050. This calls for a massive investment in domestic retrofit in the UK. To achieve this it is vital to apply exacting retrofit standards across the whole industry.

    Based on this understanding, Retrofit Academy Technical Advisor Dr Peter Rickaby devised the PAS 2035 standard. This overarching standards framework created the role of Retrofit Coordinator; a retrofit specialist responsible for ensuring all retrofit projects are fully compliant with PAS 2035.

    The Retrofit Coordinator is a brand new position central to the assessment, delivery, and handover of all retrofit projects. Coordinators must be fully accredited. To achieve this they need to achieve the Level 5 Diploma in Retrofit Coordination and Risk Management.

The Social Housing Toolkit

All domestic retrofit must be delivered in compliance with the UK Government’s PAS 2035 standard. We have created the Social Housing Toolkit to help give you a solid introduction to why domestic retrofit is important, what it means for your organisation, and how it can be implemented in a cost-effective, sustainable way that benefits both tenants and social landlords.

This toolkit has been created by leading retrofit experts and consultants and is your comprehensive primer on delivering PAS-complaint retrofit in the social housing sector

You will discover how effective retrofit will help you reduce energy demand whilst improving the warmth and ventilation of homes; how to end fuel poverty through taking a whole-house approach to retrofit; and how to reduce repair and maintenance costs whilst improving occupancy comfort and wellbeing.

This toolkit will help you:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the importance of PAS-compliant retrofit
  • Learn how to navigate the detailed requirements of PAS 2035
