Guide to Energy Retrofit of Traditional Buildings
This guide describes retrofit measures which can be used to improve the energy efficiency of traditional buildings, whilst maintaining as much of their historic fabric and creating healthy indoor environments. These measures are backed up by research and showcased in various case studies, as trialled by Historic Environment Scotland. The guide also looks at compatibility with the existing fabric, compliance with building standards and the planning process.
The purpose of the guide is to inform and provide guidance to homeowners, local authority building control officers, architects, designers and installers on how to approach the refurbishment of such buildings and balance various requirements.
