To tackle these challenges, Turnkey Retrofit developed an integrated home renovation service, leveraging on the business operations of the project partners (4000 integrated building renovations conducted to date).
The Turnkey Retrofit service is developed as a homeowner-centric renovation journey, transforming the complex and fragmented renovation process into a simple, straightforward and attractive process: all providers on one platform – Solutions4Renovation, where trust is key.
A burden-free experience for the customer (homeowners or board of co-owners), this holistic service allows to manage and upgrade their homes in a simpler and cost-effective way. It matches end-users with the right building professionals and financial options, while assembling the local capacity for deep energy renovations.
9 partners (from research, consultancy, engineering companies, non-profit organisations, technology centres) are joining forces to develop the concept in 3 EU countries: France, Ireland and the Spain.
Turnkey Retrofit identified and established ad-hoc mechanisms and a specific new business plan for the target countries.
If successful, the service-oriented model will be replicated EU-wide.
Within the project, the role of national and local regulations, incentives and financial barriers to home renovation have been analysed and will support the streamlining of standards and practices when replicating to other EU countries beyond the end of the project.
The service is accessible through a user-friendly digital platform, Solutions4Renovation, and addresses drivers of building renovation that go beyond a desire to reduce energy bills and increase asset value, such as home improvement, increased comfort, enhanced health & quality of life (additional added-value services for e.g. accessibility, security, etc.).
The project covers both detached and semi-detached single-family and multi-family residential housing.
Turnkey Retrofit main market is the private residential sector, however the service could easily be adapted as well for social housing and local authorities, offering a great development and growth potential.
