Cheshire/Shropshire/Staffordshire Group – Visit to the Centre of Refurbishment Excellence, Stoke-on-Trent

CoRE is the not for profit, national centre of excellence for green building retrofit. Its mission is to transfer practical retrofit knowledge to support excellence in retrofit products & projects across the domestic and non-domestic sectors. CoRE’s network of Fellows is the UK’s largest bank of retrofit expertise, drawing together leading practitioners from construction, design & academia. They not only shape the CoRE agenda, but also share their knowledge with the growing number of active retrofitters through events, bespoke training & information sharing.

Based in Stoke-on-Trent, CoRE is itself an example of refurbishment excellence, an international standard conference and training venue, the hub of the UK retrofit industry. It is sponsored by E.ON with additional support from Honeywell, Balfour Beatty & Eric Wright Construction. The DCLG, the European Regional Development Fund & the National Lottery Heritage Fund helped fund the refurbishment programme.
