This series of three online, engaging, and interactive workshops, are aimed at supporting office owners, occupiers, facilities managers and the consultants that advise them, in understanding when and how, to carry out different phases of commercial retrofit. Each workshop will focus on a different phase: Optimisation, Light Retrofit and Deep Retrofit.

The sessions will explore the primary drivers, key stakeholders and steps involved, potential outcomes and lessons learnt, all illustrated through real-world project examples.

About this Session

Hosted online, but with plenty of opportunity for discussion and interaction, each workshop will be led by UKGBC drawing on the research carried out for our Building the case for net zero: retrofitting office buildings. They will support key stakeholders in understanding what steps they need to take to accelerate the strategic retrofit of the offices they own, occupy, manage or consult on.

At each workshop, we’ll introduce the key concepts and then dive into real-life case studies, hearing from the people who have worked on them.
