FP7 RetroKit

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Toolboxes for systemic retrofitting     The vision of the fp7 RetroKit project was to develop and demonstrate multifunctional, modular, low cost and easy to install prefabricated modules in order to significantly increase the EU retrofitting rate and contribute to EU energy reduction commitments.

The European collaborative project RetroKit is now in its final phase with only three months left. The works at the demonstration buildings are finished.  To learn more about the refurbishment work there is a short report from Frankfurt as well as some films about some of the technical solutions that were used.   More news is available in the 7th newsletter from RetroKit.

Two minimal invasive refurbishment systems are currently being tested at two multi-family houses in Frankfurt, Germany. The first concept is based on the insulation of integrated ventilation ducts and supply through window opening. The other one consists of multi-functional window modules. Both systems are pre-fabricated and the primary refurbishment measures can be carried out from the outside. The aim is easier handling, improved flexibilty and easier integration with traditional construction processes.
