Energy Performance Certificates
Introduced as part of the Energy Performance of Building Directive, EPC’s are a legal requirement for buildings at the point of construction, sale or rent.
EPC’s are similar to the energy rating certificates that you are probably familiar with for white goods and cars, and gives you an indication of the energy performance of a building compared to a government established notional building.
We are able to produce EPC’s for Non-Domestic Buildings and our registration is covered by our membership of the CIBSE Low Carbon Consultants for UK properties and by SEI for properties in Ireland. We have been fully trained in the use of Designbuilder as our interface to SBEM
DesignBuilder is a drawing based interface that allows building data to be quickly loaded, but does require drawings to be available. In instances where drawings are not available, it is necessary to complete a measured survey of the property.
