The Building Futures Partnership have published the Retrofit Resource which provides a wealth of information to help homeowners, tenants and commercial property owners save energy and water.
The Retrofit Resource is available as a short 'how-to' guide for homeowners and tenants, two longer manuals which provide detailed guidance, and an online database of companies who will help you make your retrofit a reality.
The guides take you through the 12 steps to a successful retrofit, from identifying financial and environmental savings to choosing the right retrofit solutions for you and your property. As well as tips that cost nothing but save money, the guide shows how you can make use of green technologies and make your home more resilient to a changing climate.

The Building Futures Retrofit Resource has been created in partnership with BioRegional Development Group and the Association for the Conservation of Energy, and has been developed with funds and assistance from the Climate Change Skills Fund, which has been managed by Sustainability East on behalf of Improvement East.
