The BRE Innovation Parks’ goal is to establish a unique and unparalleled research and demonstration network, which inspires and develops innovative solutions that will inform the development of the global built environment.

This network will work with stakeholders to identify and support innovations which demonstrate true sustainability and deliver social, economic and environmental benefits at  national and international levels.

Using this network, BRE can predict operational performance of buildings across different geographical areas, under various occupancy profiles, and taking into account factors relating to orientation and site positioning.

In this project BRE will test retrofit solutions on existing buildings on its sites in Scotland and England, monitor outcomes and assess applicability to the wider UK market.
