Dwellings which require energy retrofit work will first need to be assessed by a Retrofit Assessor.
These assessors play a critical role in the PAS 2035 process as they collect and provide property data/information which Retrofit Coordinators can use to develop a relevant improvement plan.
Reports produced by the Retrofit Assessor include:
In order to comply with PAS 2035 every domestic retrofit project will need to be managed by an approved Retrofit Coordinator.
A Retrofit Coordinator is the individual who will be responsible for overseeing the assessment of dwellings as well as the subsequent specification, monitoring, and evaluation of energy efficiency measures, in accordance with PAS 2035.
A Retrofit Coordinator will manage a retrofit project from inception to completion, and will need to liaise with Clients, Retrofit Assessors, Retrofit Designers and Retrofit Installers in order to ensure effective end-to-end project management and successful delivery of the project as a whole.
The activities that Retrofit Coordinators are expected to undertake as part of the PAS 2035 process include:

The Retrofit Evaluator shall collate the information provided by the Client and the occupant(s), summarise it, formulate recommendations for any remedial actions required and any changes to the retrofit process that may be appropriate, and circulate the summary and recommendations to the Client, the Retrofit Coordinator, the Retrofit Assessor, the Retrofit Designer and the Retrofit Installer.
Three levels of monitoring and evaluation shall be carried out, as appropriate:
