The study aimed to provide typical Glasgow sandstone tenement flat dwellers with a guide as to the most suitable carbon reduction measures to apply to their dwelling. In particular, it was intended to provide a cost per tonne of carbon dioxide saved comparison to demonstrate value for money for various retrofit options.

A particular tenement flat was selected and surveyed. The dimensions and conditions were passed to Energy Systems Research Unit at the University of Strathclyde Glasgow who prepared a dynamic thermal model. Various retrofit options were agreed and applied to the model and the outcomes recorded in terms of tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions saved.

Doig and Smith (Cost Consultants) prepared costs for all the retrofit options allowing the cost-per-tonne saved to be calculated.
