Adapting Old Commercial Buildings for Net Zero A Path to Compliance and Sustainability.

As the urgency to address climate change grows, the need for transitioning to net-zero emissions becomes increasingly crucial. While new buildings can be designed with sustainability in mind, there is a significant challenge in retrofitting existing commercial buildings to meet new regulations and achieve net-zero targets by 2030. However, with strategic adaptations, these old structures can be transformed into energy-efficient, environmentally friendly spaces.
Paul Irving, Managing Director at MS Maintenance Solutions Ltd explores several key steps to adapt processes and systems in old commercial buildings, enabling them to align with new regulations and contribute to a sustainable future.
