We provide a comprehensive certification and compliance service. For your buildings we offer non-domestic EPCs and DECs and for your organisation ESOS, carbon reporting & ISO support.
We are able to undertake and produce Non domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) and Display Energy Certificates (DEC). All Commercial building require an EPC when they are being sold or let and public buildings over 250m2 must have a DEC.
Display Energy Certificates (DEC) DECs give an operational rating of energy efficiency and environmental impact. This means it takes into account what the building is used for and the occupancy hours and compares this to industry benchmarks. Though only mandatory for certain buildings Voluntary DECs can be an easy way to find out how much energy your are using in comparison to you industry. DECs can also be used as part of ESOS compliance for larger organisations. Find out more here
Non Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) EPCs rate your buildings energy efficiency and environmental impact on a scale ranging from A to G and list improvement measures to be considered. Under the Energy Act 2011 it will be mandatory for all commercial building to reach an E standard by 2018. Failure to obtain this level will mean that properties cannot be sold or let. We can help you or your tenants to comply with these conditions. Find out more here
