comprehensive retrofit services & software aligned with PAS 2035 assessments.

In the wake of increasing environmental concerns and stringent regulatory standards, the need for sustainable building practices has never been greater. PAS 2035, the process specification for the energy retrofit of domestic buildings, sets out a robust framework ensuring high-quality retrofit projects. Property Tectonics (pt) provide a range of retrofit services, including assessment, design and coordination, and we have Homelife software that provides an end-to-end solution for the delivery of retrofit projects, adhering to PAS 2035 and allows direct lodgement to Trustmark.

PAS 2035 is the publicly available specification developed by the British Standards Institution (BSI) for domestic retrofit projects. It outlines a holistic approach, covering assessment, design, installation, and evaluation stages, ensuring energy efficiency and quality in retrofitting projects.


Key Elements of PAS 2035:

  • Whole House Retrofit Approach: Considering the entire property rather than individual measures.
  • Retrofit Coordinator: A qualified professional managing the retrofit process.
  • Detailed Risk Assessment: Identifying potential risks and mitigation strategies.
  • Performance Monitoring: Ensuring retrofit measures achieve the desired outcomes.

Retrofit Assessment:

A retrofit assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of a property's current state, identifying opportunities for energy efficiency improvements. It includes a detailed analysis of the building's fabric, services, and occupants' behaviour.

  • Enhanced Energy Efficiency: Reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint.
  • Improved Comfort and Health: Ensuring better indoor air quality and living conditions.
  • Increased Property Value: Higher energy performance ratings lead to greater market value.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Meeting legal and regulatory standards, avoiding potential fines.

Property Tectonics: Services, Software & Process:

Property Tectonics Retrofit Services and Homelife software align seamlessly with PAS 2035, ensuring every project is executed to the highest standards. Our processes and software tool, Homelife, deliver the requirements under PAS 2035 aimed at raising the standards, ensuring energy efficiency retrofits adopt a deeper, whole house, fabric first, measures-based approach and are managed and coordinated effectively from end to end and that risks are managed properly. The pt process includes:

  • Initial Consultation: Understanding the client's needs and property specifics.
  • Comprehensive Survey: Detailed assessment of the property's current state.
  • Data Analysis: Evaluating energy performance and identifying retrofit measures.
  • Customised Retrofit Plan: Developing a tailored plan in line with PAS 2035 guidelines.
  • Implementation Support: The execution of retrofit measures.
  • Performance Monitoring: Ongoing evaluation to ensure desired outcomes are achieved.

Homelife is an end-to-end solution for the delivery of retrofit projects, a truly collaborative tool that involves all stakeholders, including the homeowner, from start to finish of the PAS 2035 process.

Comprehensive retrofit assessments are essential for achieving the goals set out by PAS 2035. For more information on how pt can help you with your retrofit project, contact us
