Retro Expo Awards Now Open For Entries!

20th August, 2012

Do you have an innovative product or service that has revolutionised the retrofit market? Have you delivered an inspiring retrofit project that others should know about?

Do you see yourself as a retrofit pioneer? Make sure you get the recognition you deserve by entering the Retro Expo Awards launched today, visit for more details.

Excellence in all stages of the retrofit process will finally be recognised and celebrated thanks to the Retro Expo Awards. From large scale retrofit procurement to enabling technologies, real-world projects and R&D trials,
the Retro Expo Awards will recognise excellence in retrofit products, innovation, design and delivery across the domestic, commercial and public sector markets.

The retrofit market is worth 32 billion a year in the UK alone and with the imminent launch of The Green Deal, it's an exciting and dynamic time for this sector. There are many pioneering initiatives out there that aren't being recognised and widely promoted and we hope the Retro Expo Awards will champion these projects and inspire others to follow suit.

"The Retro Expo Awards recognise excellence in retrofit products, projects and people," said David Pierpoint, Business Development Director for Retro Expo. "Refurbishment is a massive existing market that is set to grow exponentially as a result of the low carbon agenda. However it is usually overlooked in favour of iconic new builds. This doesn't accurately reflect the market. The awards celebrate best practice and excellence and will set the standard for new blue chip and SME entrants to the market."
