Under Ireland’s Climate action plan the Government plans to renovate over 500,000 homes in the next ten years to a B2 standard. Under the Covid 19 recovery plan, billed as the world ‘s biggest green stimulus, renovation is likely to be a key part of the investment strategy of the EU.
This means that renovation will finally come into its own and become a major industry in Ireland over the coming years. But how do we make sure that this is properly invested in high quality renovation that guarantees performance and safeguards the health of the occupants? This webinar series explores a range of solutions and focuses on important considerations for delivering high quality renovations.
