What needs to be in place for the commercial property sector to play a significant role in large scale city retrofitting to 2020 and beyond?
I'll be attending the next 2degrees Live event on 25th January, Raising The Energy Performance of Your Properties', and wanted to start a discussion around one of my main challenges/areas of interest ahead of the day.
We are currently conducting research on the drivers, barriers and key trends in commercial property retrofitting as part of a wider four year research programme on retrofitting cities (www.retrofit2050.org.uk). This is looking at ‘end users’ of buildings (including investors, occupiers and so on) as well as the ‘supply’ chain (technology suppliers) and financing. Whilst many companies are looking at retrofitting from an asset management perspective, large scale commercial retrofitting presents significant challenges (as well as opportunities).
What needs to change and what needs to be in place to make this happen at city scale in the commercial property sector over the next 10 years and beyond?
Please join in and add your thoughts.
