Retrofit Awareness Event

Event Date 1 November, 2021
Event Time 6:00 pm
Event Location Harrogate College

Get to know what retrofitting is and why it’s important

We have teamed up with Zero Carbon Harrogate to host a free event for people working in the construction industry. 

Led by industry speakers, the event will inform individuals and businesses of the skills needed to meet the growing demand from homeowners to retrofit their homes.

It will also be an opportunity for guests to tell us what type of content would be useful for us to incorporate into newly developed courses at Harrogate College.

Speakers at the event will be:

  • Adam Harper – Chartered Construction Manager (MCIOB), certified passive house tradesperson and Programme Manager
  • Caroline Linford – Retrofit Coordinator at CoreLogic UK and owner of Sustainably Harrogate
  • Chris Wilde – MD at Yorkshire Energy Systems Ltd and member of the Harrogate District Climate Change Coalition

Topics they will be covering include an overview of whole house retrofit and typical measures, PAS standards and current supply and demand of retrofitting services in the Harrogate District.
