Thesurvey is a threefold process which allows us to determine:
Does the building require an EPC?
Is the Building Level 3, 4 or 5 in complexity?
On the day of the survey we will require complete unrestricted access to the building (with an escort if necessary). This will allow us to make an accurate energy performance calculation. The survey will normally take between two hours to a few days depending on size and complexity.
We will inspect:
Plant equipment and O&M Manuals if available
A complete set of data from your Building Services Engineer if applicable
The building's fabric and date of construction
On completion of the survey we will begin data compilation and computer modelling of the building. The Energy Performance Certificate for commercial buildings along with Recommendation Reports will be reviewed by our Quality Assurance Team.
ALL buildings built after December 2018 will have to produce their own renewable energy on-site, says the European Parliament's industry committee, amending the 2002 Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). read more
