    Abstract

    The ApRemodel project is a study of multi-occupancy retrofit in the Finnish context. As part of the study a research project was commissioned to identify and compare innovative practice with regards to non-technical issues being addressed in retrofit projects being undertaken in the UK housing sector. Given that the examples were required to address a multi-occupancy scenario all of these cases come from the UK social housing sector, where the majority of multi-occupancy retrofit is being undertaken. Here we outline the cases that were reviewed, the innovations that were identified within them and the main initial findings.
