Futureproof: Watch the first stages of Tuai’s and Rory’s retrofit projects

12 February 2021

Our project Futureproof helps homeowners and builders in the West of England to carry out energy saving home improvements and refurbishments with confidence.

We have two exciting projects to tell you about each with thier own unique journey in the world of retrofit - both in Bristol.

Tuai Lovejoy is creating a family home with an environmental focus to ensure that he is able to enjoy it for years to come. In this video he discusses his motivations for undertaking a retrofit project, what he may have done differently and how he hopes the project will develop.

Meanwhile, in another part of the city, Rory Mundell Perkins' project is a little bit more of a challenge! He is retrofitting a terrace house and has encountered a few problems along the way - not least a change in floor level between his home and the neighbouring one in the terrace that has been badly addressed in the past. But he remains undaunted by the issues and is looking forward to getting the project finished!

While these projects focus on householders, we have an excellent training and certification programme for any builders or contractors wishing to undertake Green Homes Grant work this year. More information can be found on our partner the Green Register's website.
