Upskilling Retrofit Training


The Growth Lancashire Heritage Team are all qualified in the Retrofit level 3 NOCN Award – Energy Efficiency for Older and Traditional Buildings course.

Over one-third of all UK buildings are of a traditional construction. The qualification is set around the need to treat these traditional buildings differently when specifying or assessing retrofit proposals to upgrade energy efficiency and features both BSI PAS 2035 and PAS 2038 and the use of BS7913 – the British Standard for work to traditional and historic buildings.

The NOCN Level 3 Award is a government-approved qualification and has been developed to suit contractors and consultants, as well as clients.  The qualification provides the necessary level of expertise to work as retrofit assessors and advisors, where proposed works affect traditional buildings and to be involved in Government or energy provider (ECO) funded retrofit projects.
