There are various reasons for embarking on a retrofit, they include wanting your home to be warmer in winter, cooler in summer, cheaper to run, healthier for your family and better for the environment.

Your home should be resilient; a place of shelter, security and comfort. We prefer to design using natural building materials with low embodied carbon and low toxicity - better for human and environmental health.


Whatever your reasons, the process of retrofitting needs to be carefully planned and accurately specified. Not every intervention needs to be done at the same time but having a whole-house action plan is the best way to ensure a successful outcome. 

RVI Retrofit programmes are tailored to your unique needs and circumstances and make best use of the grants and incentives available. Some installations require specialist expertise but many retrofit measures are well suited to a DIY enthusiast.
