Non-Domestic or Commercial Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are a legal requirement in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland since 2008 and a legal requirement in Scotland since 2009.
An EPC is required when you build, rent, or sell a property. The initial purpose of the EPC legislations was to give potential buyers and tenants a transparency of the associated cost of occupying the property.
However, in recent years, this has developed further into new legislations which aid to reduce the Energy and Carbon demand of both Commercial and Domestic buildings.
An EPC certificate shows the asset rating of the property from A to G and includes the total useful floor area, building complexity, main heating fuel type, predicted energy and carbon emissions per square meter per year.
In recent years, this developed to newer guidelines and restrictions with the already in force MEES Regulations.
We offer this service for a whole range of commercial property types from small single units to large estate portfolios across England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland.
The Assessment involves one our qualified and accredited Non-Domestic Energy Assessor’s (NDEA) attending your property to conduct a measured assessment where they will collect information on the building use, construction type, insulation, lighting, heating and hot water amongst other things. Using accredited software’s to calculate the properties energy performance, our assessor will tailor the recommendations specific to your property and provide additional advice as and when needed.
The final certificate is lodged after completion on a central Governmental Body and gives indication on the theoretical Energy use and typical CO2 emissions associated with your property.
Once lodged or registered with the Central Body, an EPC is valid for ten years unless it is superseded by a newer one.
