Retrofit Coordinator Training
Gain all the relevant skills and knowledge to become a Retrofit Coordinator, who provides an important project management role within the PAS 2035 process.
Retrofit Coordinators and PAS 2035
In order to comply with PAS 2035 every domestic retrofit project will need to be managed by an approved Retrofit Coordinator. A Retrofit Coordinator is the individual who will be responsible for overseeing the assessment of dwellings as well as the subsequent specification, monitoring, and evaluation of energy efficiency measures, in accordance with PAS 2035.
A Retrofit Coordinator will manage a retrofit project from inception to completion, and will need to liaise with building owners, Retrofit Assessors, Retrofit Designers and Retrofit Installers in order to ensure effective end-to-end project management.
The activities that Retrofit Coordinators will need to undertake as part of the PAS 2035 process include:
- the completion of a retrofit risk assessment for each dwelling or dwelling type within the retrofit project
- the development of a retrofit project plan
- the development of a medium term improvement plan for every dwelling, for implementation over a period of thirty years
- the documentation of the project progress, including any information that is supplied by building owners, and other retrofit stakeholders involved in the delivery of the project
Why become a Retrofit Coordinator?
Built environment professionals from a range of backgrounds can train to become Retrofit Coordinators. Those trained as Retrofit Coordinators can specialise in delivering whole house retrofit projects which embrace best practice retrofit methodology.
Moreover, the Retrofit Coordinator role is mandatory for all retrofit projects undertaken in conjunction with PAS 2035 which is fully backed by the government and TrustMark. This, as well as the government's aim to improve the energy efficiency in existing homes, should drive demand for individuals qualified and accredited in this area.
