Are you involved in the renovation of existing buildings? This Design Guide is aimed at everybody in the retrofit sector from Policy Makers and Development Managers in Housing organisations, to Architects, Builders, Surveyors and those simply interested in upgrading their own homes.

Scottish Government is directing large amounts of money into this sector just now in an effort to combat climate change and fuel poverty. The Pebble Trust, supported by SEDA (Scottish Ecological Design Association) and HES (Historic Environment Scotland) has seized on this timing to commission a guide to help ensure that this effort is as effective, and sustainable as possible.

The work is based heavily on BPE (Building Performance Evaluation) studies in which investigators study the actual performance of buildings once built, rather than the calculated predictions routinely used, and the real experience of people within these buildings!
