2013 Retro Expo Awards now open for entries

The 2013 Retro Expo Awards – recognising excellence in retrofit – was launched on 7 June 2013 at the ICC Birmingham. The free to enter National Awards have 12 categories recognizing excellence in retrofit products, innovation, design and delivery across the domestic, commercial and public sector markets.
In 2012 nearly 100 entries to the Retro Expo Awards were received (see cases studies of previous winners attached). Alumet won the Non-domestic Retrofit Project of the Year Award for retro-fitting its headquarters with integrated PV, the region’s first electric vehicle charging point, a green wall and wildlife garden and a living laboratory showcasing the latest in renewable technologies.
Alumet Director Dean Walton commented: “As a leading renewable energy specialist committed to providing innovative and efficient solutions, it was incredibly important to our company to win an award for our own new state-of- the- art retrofit facade installed at our Warwickshire headquarters. Innovation is the key to business success and winning an award, especially when judged by such a respected panel, can drive new business. So, if you have a retrofit innovation, I would recommend entering these awards.”
