So, you’ve got a plan of the retrofit improvements you want to make to your home. But you can’t just hand this to a builder and ask them to crack on.
This is where you might need help from consultants, designers, engineers and sometimes contractors or suppliers with early advice.
This step is about commissioning any detailed technical design needed to describe the work you’d like to do in full. This in turn informs a schedule of work that contractors can price up with confidence.
Now it's time to consider which products, materials and construction services are needed for your retrofit project. With high quality design work to hand you can be clear with contractors about the materials and attention to detail you want them to quote on.
Choosing and engaging a contractor is a big step in your retrofit journey. It’s important to enter this process with as much information as possible, from initially identifying potential builders and creating tender documents to selecting a contractor and developing a contract.
