Keegans is proud to sponsor Retrofit 24: The Reuse Agenda for Our Commercial, Cultural & Civic Buildings. An exhibition about inspiring innovation and paving the way towards a sustainable future for our built environment.


Retrofit 24 is open to the public Monday to Friday at the Building Centre, Central London until August 30th. We encourage everyone to visit and be inspired by the strides being made toward a more sustainable built environment.



"Following the successful Retrofit 23 exhibition, which we sponsored and exhibited at last year, we are proud once again to be sponsoring Retrofit 24, which highlights the pressing need for retrofit solutions in our built environment and showcases the innovative strides being made towards a sustainable future. Our support for Retrofit 24, underscores Keegans commitment to driving positive change and advancing the conversation around decarbonization and climate resilience across the UK's construction industry."

- Andrew Morrison - Managing Director, Keegans


The Brent Schools Retrofit study, a collaborative effort with ECD Architects, is on display in the exhibition, alongside presentations, workshops, family fun days and a series of online and in-person events that our team is actively getting involved in.


In the United Kingdom, 23% of operational carbon emissions originate from non-domestic buildings, with a significant 70% of these structures erected before the turn of the millennium. Achieving Net Zero targets by 2050 demands urgent and effective action in delivering retrofit solutions. Join us at the Retrofit 24 exhibition at the Building Centre to delve into this imperative conversation.


Retrofit 24 offers a comprehensive showcase of recent commercial, cultural, and civic retrofit projects, illustrating how improvements in energy efficiency can be realized across all sectors.



Retrofit Meets: Using data to deliver successful retrofit projects featuring Jon Abbott, Keegans Director - Retrofit





Beyond environmental advantages, retrofitting increases and supports: 

  • Increased property values
  • Enhanced usability of spaces
  • Improved quality of life for occupants
  • Vibrant placemaking (people-centred places) 
  • Neighbourhood revitalization


Retrofit 24 examines key considerations to help you achieve net zero commercial retrofitting, highlighting the benefits and the challenges of delivering commercial retrofit at scale.  


The Retrofit 24 exhibition and talks programme cover:  

  • The role of product and design innovation in retrofitting at scale  
  • Why collaboration between landlords, developers and occupiers is vital  
  • How data can help to identify solutions 
  • Ways in which commercial buildings can be re-purposed to create homes or other new functions 
  • The role of public sector retrofitting in enhancing civic pride and cultural heritage  
  • The practicalities of retrofitting historic buildings 
  • The fundamental value of environmental, social and governance (ESG) approaches – not just the bottom line 


Retrofit 24 serves as a beacon of inspiration, illuminating pathways to innovation, and laying the groundwork for a sustainable future in our built environment.
