PhD Scholarship: Retrofit at an urban scale

Monday 19th August, 2019

We are collaborating with Manchester School of Architecture to offer a PhD Scholarship on "Retrofitting Neighbourhoods: Exploring approaches to sustainable residential retrofit at neighbourhood scale".

We're supporting this work because we're interested in collective and neighbourhood-based approaches to sustainable retrofit of existing homes. This will build on our earlier work in the Sustainable Urban Neighbourghood Initiative in the context of the climate challenge facing existing buildings. We're particularly interested in how collective retrofit might happen in older terraced neighbourhoods with a high proportion of owner-occupiers - a context which presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities. 

The successful applicant will be based partly in our office with opportunities to engage directly with practitioners, community organisations and clients engaged in retrofit, as well as conducting their own research. 

You can find out more and apply here.

The deadline is 26th August.
