Architectural Lead – Conservation Retrofit

24 January 2023
£36,000 - £44,000 / year

Job Description

Nottingham Energy Partnership have an exciting new opportunity for an Architectural Professional to play a leading role in the development of our pioneering retrofit programmes. Nottingham Energy Partnership is a Climate Action Charity which has been involved in the retrofit of thousands of homes and non-domestic buildings over the past 25 years. We are currently expanding the services that we offer to include a comprehensive retrofit advice and planning service for homeowners (Future-Fit Homes) and a pilot project to develop specialist services for older traditionally constructed buildings (the Conservation Retrofit Catalyst).

NEP’s Future-Fit Homes project aims to increase the uptake and quality of domestic retrofit, by providing a tailored and holistic service centred around the needs of homeowners. As part of a lottery funded pilot, the service is being offered free to households in the Meadows area of Nottingham through the Green Meadows project.

Households participating in the project are offered a detailed Future-Fit home assessment which will form the basis of their Future-Fit home plan – a stepped whole house retrofit plan, tailored to their home. This plan not only provides detailed advice, but signposts households to grants and funding, DIY retrofit workshops and other resources to enable them to kickstart the retrofit of their homes.

Join our passionate interdisciplinary team at Nottinghamshire’s longest running Climate Action Charity. You will provide the specialist architectural input to support the development and delivery of NEP’s retrofit projects, including our innovative ‘Conservation Retrofit Catalyst’. The role will be varied, with the potential not only to exercise your technical and design skills, but to play a part in shaping the future of retrofit in the midlands and beyond.

This is a varied role for an architectural professional, the focus of which will be to provide specialist architectural input to support the development and delivery of NEP’s retrofit projects. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing bespoke retrofit designs and specifications appropriate to traditionally constructed and conservation area properties. The role will also include the delivery of retrofit training to tradespeople and homeowners. The role will be predominantly office-based with some off-site work.

Contract type: 1 year (with potential to be extended)

Location: Nottingham City
