Retrofit Talks: It takes a community

Online talk
Tue 4 Jul 2023, 1-1.45pm
Part of RETROFIT 23

Retrofit Talks is an online series of live talks that connects professionals to discuss residential retrofit. Produced as part of Retrofit 23, this series showcases the latest research and projects in architectural practice, providing case studies and solutions for retrofit of homes. The talks feature guest speakers presenting their project followed by an interactive Q&A. Join us for these engaging sessions and gain insights into the innovative approaches to retrofitting homes.

The sixth event in the series is delivered by Lizzy Westmacott from ECD Architects, plus project collaborators.

With 28 million homes needing to be retrofitted across the UK, the existing workforce needs to be enormously expanded, with several new roles having recently been created. Large scale retrofit can seem daunting or dull. This session presents how exciting it can be, with a number of different speakers, who are carrying out a range of roles on a live retrofit project (Netherfield Estate in Milton Keynes, where over 600 homes are being retrofitted) talking about their role in the project, what they enjoy about it, and what they’ve learned.
