Energy Performance Certificates(EPC)
All new developments require SAP or SBEM Calculations and Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) to meet Building Regulations Approved Documents L1 & L2 and the EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. These calculations are done via approved software, which estimates the overall energy/ carbon emissions efficiency of a building.
Current Part L Building Regulations updated on 1st October 2010 requires all new buildings to reduce carbon emissions by 25%. In 2013 Part L will be updated again with even more rigorous targets set. It is now even more important that you have robust, professional advice on how to meet these regulations in the optimal, cost effective way.
We are qualified to carry out these calculations on—
- Residential—All New Homes, Existing Homes, Conversions and Extensions (OCDEA, DEA)
- Commercial—All Buildings new and existing (LCEA Levels 3, 4 & 5)
On completion of the property we are accredited and licensed to convert our calculations into Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs).
We also carry out:
- Air Tightness Testing
- Thermal Bridging Calculations
- Sound Insulation Testing
- BREEAM and Code Assessments
- Daylighting & overheating analysis
Therefore we are able to provide a cost effective, efficient & convenient service to ensure your development achieves Building Regulations compliance. No building is too simple or too complex.
We will make the process cost effective and simple for you. Call us today.Get a free quotation
