Welcome to the launch of Retrofit West!

We are calling out to builders, electricians, plumbers and other trades interested in learning new skills, winning more business and being a part of the solution to the climate emergency.

The launch will give you an opportunity to network with others in the industry, be introduced to the retrofit opportunities out there as well as gain information about how to get free accredited retrofit training.

Sustainably sourced food and drinks will be provided.

You will hear from all the partners of Retrofit West and be able to engage with them during the event. We will also welcome Dan Norris, Mayor of the West of England, as keynote as well as a local retrofit case study. Retrofit West partners: Retrofit West, The Green Register, Building Growth South West, Future Leap and Bath College.
