Project title: The Implications of Swansea City & County Council’s Response to Decarbonisation in Retrofitting their Housing Stock

Project Aims and Objectives

To critically analyse how SCCC is going to achieve decarbonisation in all of their housing stock by 2050.

  • To analyse available literature / publications by way of a literature review to assess how decarbonisation by means of retrofitting will have an impact on the local authority.
  • To identify the views and perceptions of decarbonisation in domestic dwellings by professionals in this field by means of primary research through interviews.
  • To evaluate the findings from primary research and highlight areas of concerns and considerations as to whether decarbonisation to SCCC housing stock is feasible.

Why did you choose this course?

I chose to study BSc (Hons) Project Construction Management to further my career in the field of Construction. I started the course in my previous job as a Project Manager in Capital Planning for Swansea Bay University Health Board (previously known as Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board).

What has been the high-point of your studies at UWTSD? 

The high-point of my studies in UWTSD will be my graduation. It will be very proud day for me and my family. The last 4 years have gone so quickly, but at the same time it has been difficult. I am very happy with what I have achieved, and the troubles I have had to overcome to reach this point. 

What are your future plans?

My career plans are to keep on progressing and climbing the management ladder. I currently work for Swansea City & County Council as a Senior Project Surveyor / Manager and I will be hoping to progress further within the authority. I would like to further my studies at a later stage and complete a Master’s Degree in Project Construction Management or a similar related course
