5 Key Takeaways from Our Retrofit Surgery: Design & Ventilation

In our recent Retrofit Surgery, we explored the importance of design & ventilation in retrofit. We discussed the importance of understanding the building’s physical & structural aspects, the need for detailed planning & specification of proposed EEM, & the integral role of ventilation & thermal bridge modelling.
