Commercial EPC – Commercial Energy Performance Certificates
Commercial energy performance certificates are now required to be obtained by landlords when renting or selling a commercial property. Energy Performance Direct is qualified to assess level 3 commercial properties. This covers most commercial property that has simple heating, lighting and ventilation systems. The EPC will last for 10 years or until another is produced.
Energy Performance Direct will require as much information about the property as possible in order to provide an accurate and competitive quote. Please provide the following when making an enquiry:
- Full contact details
- Address of the property to be assessed
- Approximate size of the building (m2)
- What the building is used for. I.e. retail, offices etc.
- Details on the heating or cooling systems
Once this information has been received a quotation will be produced and a time and date for the survey will be agreed upon.
The survey time will depend upon the size and complexity of the building and the assessor will require access to all parts of the property. The building will be measured and construction types identified including walls, floors, ceiling, doors and windows. Heating, ventilation and lighting services will also have to be identified for each area or zone of the building.
Once this information has been obtained then the assessor will compile the information and log the details into the central registration system, an EPC will be produced along with a recommendation report.
If the client acts upon the recommendations and requires an updated EPC then Energy Performance Direct will be happy to update the existing survey notes and produce the new EPC at a reduced cost. The assessor will need to revisit the property however the assessment will focus on any changes made and obtaining evidence of improvements.
