ICE Retrofit solutions for non-domestic buildings 2012 will bring together the retrofit supply chain to overcome some of the challenges associated with retrofitting the buildings in which we work.
Approximately 45% of the UK’s carbon emissions come from the built environment, including 20% from non-domestic buildings. Estimates are that 80% of the buildings that will be standing in 2050 have already been built. To achieve the Government’s commitment to lower carbon emissions by 80% by 2050 the need to improve the sustainability of our buildings is undeniable.
ICE Retrofit Solutions for Non-Domestic Buildings 2012 will bring together the retrofit supply chain to overcome some of the challenges associated with retrofitting the buildings in which we work.
The conference will deliver case studies of successful retrofit schemes, detailing sources of finance, procurement methods, the physical installations and the engagement with buildings’ users to ensure that the measures are correctly used.
