"Your Cosy Home"
a pop-up retrofit shop
With existing homes being responsible for 18% of our carbon emissions, energy prices and fuel poverty ever increasing, plus the huge health problems attributable to our poor quality housing, this is a place where people can find out more about low-carbon domestic retrofit and how to make homes more energy efficient, healthier and cosy.
The first pop-up retrofit shop will appear in Manchester city centre in 2023.
The key aim for the shop is to raise awareness, explaining why retrofitting our homes is vital in de-carbonising the UK. There will be clear infographics with sample materials showing what can be achieved.
The exhibit will identify and provide support to 3 different audiences - homeowners or landlords; designers, surveyors, engineers or other building consultants; and contractors and installers.
There will be free impartial advice and links to training workshops and other resources including sources of funding.
The shop will also incorporate a retail element making it easy for people to purchase the materials and components on display.
The shop is roughly 4.5 x 4.5m in size and will consist of a series of exhibition boards with plenty of materials and samples on display.
It will be open to visitors on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays and then can be booked in advance by our sponsors on the other days of the week.
There will be a meeting table with 4 chairs, plus a coffee machine!
