Planning Responsible Retrofit of Traditional Buildings

Responsible Retrofit Series - STBA

By Neil May, Nigel Griffiths

With part funding from Historic England, the STBA has published guidance on retrofitting traditional buildings based on current research and practice.

The guidance looks at the complexity and uncertainty in the way that older buildings, new technologies, nature and people perform and interact and how, by taking a realistic whole building approach, risks and liabilities can be reduced.
