Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


Topics that are addressed are the trend towards aggregation, broadening the economic approach and the increasing opportunity for retrofitting. The aggregation of contracts means that the works and services are being increasingly led in even larger sizes of works or they are being acquired
through frameworks or other forms of tenders which are not specific to the actual project that in the end needs to be delivered.
This module focuses on the Stage zero and retrofitting projects, providing guidance on proposals and showing different approaches that can be used with clients in projects depending on its scale (large or small). The aim is to provide advice to young architects of how to approach retrofit opportunities and projects and the new knowledge gained into actual architectural works.
Additionally, it provides information on how to look for fiscal incentives and funding opportunities and procurement for retrofitting and in conjunction with the Net-Learning Handbook of research and analysis the programme explores the field of energy auditing and connected topics.
