Renovating, upgrading & retrofitting
“There are more than 25 million homes in Britain, most of which do not conform to current Environmental standards” Paul Finch, Chairman of the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE)
If you have a property that fits into this category, and are considering upgrading, renovating or retrofitting we are able assist you. Here in Guernsey where green field sites are limited, there are numerous opportunities to re-develop existing buildings. At Create we can guide you on the various options available.
Retrofitting a building combines both Architectural and Engineering treatment in order to reduce energy, carbon, water and waste both during construction and its future use. Certain buildings are able to accommodate new ways in which the existing use is carried out (flexible) or convert to a completely different use (adaptable). Buildings which are both flexible and adaptable are ideal for retro-fitting.
