Climate Responsive Retrofit – why, who, how?
Retrofit is essential; It’s not easy, it’s far more challenging than new-build, and it takes a team of knowledgeable caring professionals to accomplish schemes that work.
Join us in this special webinar to find out more about the role of retrofit in taking on the climate challenge, as we embark on the Timber Development UK University Design Challenge 2023: Climate Responsive Retrofit (#TDChallenge23).

About the challenge
The 2023 university challenge will see interdisciplinary teams of individual students and 2022 graduates from UK Universities address the urgent need to reuse existing buildings by repurposing and retrofitting.
Individual students and 2022 graduates from Built Environment courses at UK Universities are invited to register their interest to join in this interdisciplinary UK wide team competition which will run for 5 months.
Timber Development UK (TDUK) are delighted to partner with BE-ST, New Model Institute for Technology & Engineering (NMITE), Edinburgh Napier University (ENU), Passivhaus Trust (PHT) & the Association for Environment Conscious Building (AECB) to launch.
