Can you help?

Like much of our city, many of our campus buildings were built pre-1950 and are likely to be with us and in active use beyond 2050. Some of those buildings are now in need of upgrading to deliver ‘fabric first’ improvements and to support our net zero carbon aspirations.

We have an exciting opportunity to retrofit existing buildings at scale in a sustainable, affordable way to support the delivery of our net zero carbon target . We need to partner with experts and technology/solution providers to develop our methodology for upgrade works and to establish our portfolio of SMART/IoT and carbon reducing products and technologies.
