Installers will automatically adopt the role of Retrofit Installer once their PAS 2030 certification is updated. However, through industry training and membership, Installers can undertake the roles of other retrofit professionals within the PAS 2035 framework. Some installers may even opt to develop a PAS 2035 turnkey service which incorporates all aspects of assessment, design, coordination and installation.
Dwellings which require retrofit work for ECO4 will first need to be assessed by a Retrofit Assessor. These assessors play an important role in the PAS 2035 process as they collect and provide property data/information which Retrofit Coordinators can use to develop a retrofit plan.
Elmhurst is one of the UK’s leading provider of Retrofit Assessor training. A pre-requisite to the Retrofit Assessor training is that you must be a trained Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA), as DEAs will already have relevant knowledge of energy assessment in existing residential buildings.
