Improving energy performance via a commitment to retrofit.
Most structures that will be here in 2050 have already been built. That’s why retrofit is an essential part of sustainable urban development.
Our dedicated team stands at the forefront of this growing specialism, working with Registered Providers, landlords and Local Authorities. We improve residential stock and give commercial properties a second life, whether that means transforming outdated houses into net zero carbon homes, replacing external cladding on high rise blocks, or reimagining landmarks for new uses. Simply put, we take yesterday and build tomorrow.
As of 2023, we are TrustMark registered business for Retrofit Coordinator services.

“We have a good working relationship with AEW, whenever they are appointed as part of the design team it does not feel as if they are an external consultant but more so that they are part of the RLB team. The relationship feels seamless, and the output and quality of work is very good. They’ve also added value to the relationship, hosting CPD sessions on BIM and Building a Safer Future.”Christopher Bowles Partner (RLB)
