Radian is leading the way to deliver the Government's 2050 target of reducing total CO2 emissions by 80% in all homes.
Already recognised as a pioneer within the sector, many of Radian's retrofit projects have been adopted as best practice case studies nationally and regionally.
October 2009 saw the launch of Retrofit South East, an 18 month project led by Radian Group with partners Camco, Parity Projects & GESB, and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) via the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA).
The aim of the project is to develop a model for low carbon retrofit of social housing that will help transform businesses and reduce carbon emissions from existing housing stock across the South East region. A programme of research, dissemination and business assistance on the theme of low carbon refurbishment will also be provided to the building trades, housing professionals, social housing managers and policy makers in the South East.
There are examples of retrofit excellence right across the south east of England. Find out more.

As part of Retrofit South East, a range of BTEC accredited eco-retrofit courses are available FREE OF CHARGE to SMEs in the region, provided by award winning company Parity Projects. These are the first accredited courses of their kind in the UK, and are targeted at contractors, housebuilders, architects and other related professionals, with the aim of boosting competitiveness ready for the emerging market in low carbon retrofit. The Retrofit South East Training leaflet (PDF) gives some background to the courses, and further details of dates and locations can be found on www.parityprojects.com.
Following the successful launch conference for our 'Retrofit South East' project in 2009 when more than 150 delegates gathered to learn from Radian's experience, expertise and future plans, we continue to develop our position as a leading advocate and pioneer of advanced whole house retrofit solutions with our next retrofit conference on May 20th. It will be a chance to re focus! We'll again be leading the debate on how we can make the best use of the available funding and encourage additional resources to accelerate our collective contribution to reduce carbon emissions. See the conference website for full details and to book your place.
