EnerPHit at Scale

We are delighted to be working with Renfrewshire Council to deliver a project as part of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Whole house retrofit competition. The EnerPHit at Scale project involves BRE, PHT member John Gilbert Architects, and the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, and will explore how to reduce domestic retrofit costs whilst delivering lower carbon performance and reductions in fuel poverty.

Funding has been awarded for 75 council owned homes in the Paisley area to be upgraded with a series of deep retrofit measures. The design vision will introduce a revolutionary hybrid approach, combining offsite and onsite methods. The funding provided through the BEIS competition will enable us to investigate different retrofit interventions that will lead to the EnerPHit standard and to measure the performance and cost implications of the various approaches.
