This guide looks into the thermal retrofit of traditional buildings in Scotland and the related actions one may take when considering such works. It allows the designer or contractor to consider how to approach the refurbishment of a traditional or historic building, balancing the various requirements that each project will bring. The guide can also be used to provide guidance for local authority building control officers in their assessment of applications for building warrant approval. It describes sustainability subjects such as embodied carbon and the circular economy.
It is a useful guide to understand about the principles in refurbishment, ventilation, areas for fabric intervention and energy performance certificates.
