This major collaborative project by the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence is evaluating the carbon reduction secured by a high-quality EnerPHit retrofit of an eight-property tenement block in Glasgow.
Launched in February 2020, the project seeks to achieve EnerPHit standards of retrofit fabric first and renewables in energy supply. The fabric works involve external wall insulation (rear and gable), internal wall insulation (front), triple glazed windows, loft insulation, waste water heat recovery, mechanical ventilation heat recovery, ground floor insulation, improved internal layout and floor joist removal. Air source heat pumps will be installed alongside control group gas boilers in specific properties for comparative purposes.
The retrofit is funded by Southside Housing Association, Glasgow City Council and Scottish Government and is delivered by CCG Construction, John Gilbert Architects and the HA. The evaluation is paid for by the Scottish Funding Council and delivered by CaCHE, University of Strathclyde, John Gilbert Architects, Southside HA and Glasgow City Council.
