PAS2035 is the new British Standard for Retrofit in the UK. It came into force for any ECO funded works from July 2021. So this will effect RSL’s and Housing Associations in the main, however there is also be a requirement to undertake the process if receiving any Government grants / loans. PAS2035 came out of the Each Home Counts report and marks a radically and much needed step forward in terms of the quality of assessment, design and management of energy efficiency interventions in dwellings.
RDE’s Retrofit Assessor (RA) services are based around the forthcoming BS40104 standard that addresses 7 assessments rather than the current shorter and less comprehensive assessments. RDE assessments look at context, occupation, condition, energy, form, ventilation as well as site specific requirements.
