PAS2035 Retrofitting Dwellings For Improved Energy Efficiency. Specification And Guidance

PAS2035 Retrofitting Dwellings For Improved Energy Efficiency. Specification And Guidance

PAS 2035 published by BSI is a key document in a framework of new and existing standards on how to conduct effective energy retrofits of existing buildings.

PAS 2035 covers how to assess dwellings for retrofit, identify improvement options, design and specify Energy Efficiency Measures (EEM) and monitor retrofit projects.

PAS 2035 covers how to assess dwellings for retrofit, identify improvement options, design and specify Energy Efficiency Measures (EEM) and monitor retrofit projects.

PAS 2030, which was redeveloped in conjunction with PAS 2035, covers the installation, commissioning and handover of retrofit projects.

PAS 2035 is for all those engaged in the management, design and installation of energy efficiency measures in existing buildings including:

Retrofit Advisors,

Assessors,

Retrofit Co-ordinators,

PAS 2035 specifies requirements for the retrofit of dwellings, including:

Assessment of dwellings for retrofit

Identification and evaluation of improvement options (Energy Efficiency Measures, or EEMs)

Design and specification of EEMs (whether individual measures or packages of multiple measures)

Monitoring and evaluation of retrofit projects

Installation, commissioning and handover

In addition to setting out requirements of all of the above, PAS 2035 also specifies requirements for advising building occupants about improvement options appropriate to their homes, and the efficient and appropriate use and maintenance of their retrofitted homes as well as for monitoring and evaluating retrofit projects when appropriate, and feeding back lessons learned to all parts of the supply chain, including the building occupants.
