This Knowledge Series publication is intended to provide a concise overview of building services refurbishment with a focus on improving energy efficiency.
This is a joint CIBSE and BSRIA publication that will provide guidance to building services engineers who are tasked with upgrading existing services. It will help building occupiers and managers to understand the minor refurbishment steps that can be taken to improve the energy efficiency of their building services.
Retrofit for energy efficiency should not be undertaken in isolation from the other drivers and considerations relating to building refurbishment. Examples include occupancy comfort, health and productivity, future flexibility and adaptability of services and maintenance and upkeep issues.
