The lock in concept and doing it right the first time

Back to News

In the latest Beacon Blog, Nick Collins talks about an article which suggested that taking an incremental approach to renovations is actually a very poor strategy, compared to waiting several years and doing full energy efficiency renovations.

Nick says there are a lot of reasons to do it right the first time: it saves on labour costs; it saves on redesign, call out fees and disruption to bundle work in the same area of a house together; and a house is the sum of its parts - you won’t get the ideal result until you address all the parts working together.
