This research aims to determine the feasibility of converting a Grade II* listed building, built in 1667 and located within a conservation area in the UK, into an eco-home by reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions. The project explores the feasibility of facilitating a change of use from a commercial building into a residential dwelling while significantly improving the energy performance. A baseline energy performance assessment is carried out using a combination of infrared thermography, monitoring of hygrothermal conditions, and thermal modelling. Different retrofitting options are applied, and the results are compared to the standard benchmarks. Hygrothermal conditions are compared to the recommended comfort level temperatures as defined in Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Guide A. The retrofitting options showed that the building could be modified to a level that shows a performance that is more favourable than the benchmarks in two out of the three benchmark measurements. Suggested improvements are sensitive to the status of the building, location, hygrothermal behaviour, and comfort level.
