Using traditional building methods

Tenement buildings can often require specialist builders who use traditional building methods. In this webinar, we will be joined by traditional building professionals who will advise you on how to find a contractor who uses traditional building methods and inform you on other aspects such as contracts and commissioning.

Energy efficiency in tenement flats

Scottish tenements can be made more energy-efficient, however, it will take owners being informed and working together to make this change. In this webinar, we discuss energy-efficient tenements and what changes you can make today for the future.

Fabric first and retrofit in tenement buildings

What is fabric-first, and how can you retrofit an older tenement building? What should you prioritise? We answer these questions and more in this webinar. Learn about sustainable maintenance and retrofit from tenement experts, and ask our live panel about how you can organise and perform retrofit in your property.

What is retrofit?

Retrofit refers to the strategic improvement of existing buildings, so that they are better able to meet modern energy efficiency standards. It can involve installing a new low to zero-emissions heating system in a building or simply adding double glazing, with the common aim of decreasing energy consumption and reducing carbon emission outputs from homes. 

Influencing retrofit policy

In a recent episode of the Zero Ambitions Podcast, Gillian Campbell, joined the hosts to discuss her recent work with the EHA on retrofit policy and what’s needed to make it work.
Retrofit entails making changes to an existing building with new materials, technology, or features that may not have necessarily been available previously.
