Independent Retrofit Service
We recognise the Retrofit journey is designed to embrace property improvements resulting in a healthy environment for all occupants and their families. However, existing evidence suggests that not all retrofit processes have delivered the expected outcomes such that, a number of re-retrofits have had to be concluded.
It is fully understood that key experts are embraced by the process and indeed are skilled in their service delivery. However, our drive is to certify the Impacts of each best-intended installation since a key fact with any new structural aspect is, what is the impact on existing elements including heating, ventilation, air distribution and occupancy?

Why Choose Cornerstone As Your Independent Retrofit Partner?

Our task is to certify and acknowledge retrofit improvements with a clear understanding of the new performance criteria alongside key information for the landlord and moreover, the residents in order to maximise the improvement aspect.
