Should You Always Retrofit?

Keith Armstrong

Retrofitting existing buildings to make them more energy efficient is critical if the UK is to hit 2050 net zero carbon targets, but should you always retrofit or is it possible to be more sustainable by starting from scratch?

This panel discussion from January 2021, chaired by Peter Murray, Editor-in-chief at NLA, explored this vital question with panellists:

  • Andrew Leiper, Net Zero Carbon Leader at Max Fordham LLP
  • Kiru Balson, Senior Sustainability Consultant at Max Fordham LLP
  • Peter Clegg, Founding Partner at FCBStudios
  • Dr Joe Jack Williams, Associate and Researcher at FCBStudios.
