Commercial Energy Performance Certificates
Bournemouth Energy provides affordable Commercial Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) for businesses that are being sold or leased in the United Kingdom. With effect from the 4th of January of this year the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive dictates that a Commercial EPC's will be required upon construction, sale or lease for all non-dwellings, covering everything from small retail units to offices, industrial units and large scale commercial premises such as airports and public buildings. Responsibility for enforcement in newly built properties will fall to Building Control, whilst Trading Standards departments will enforce certification of existing buildings.
A commercial EPC provides an energy rating for a building which is based on the performance potential of that building.
Services such as lighting, heating and ventilation are taken into account as well as the way in which these services are controlled. The now industry standardized A - G energy rating given on the certificate will reflect the intrinsic energy performance standard of the building relative to a benchmark. This rating could then be used by potential buyers or tenants to make comparisons between properties. The commercial epc is accompanied by a secondary report that provides recommendations on how the energy performance of the building could be enhanced, together with an indication of the payback period. These recommendations are provided in four categories relating to the payback period.
Like residential assessments all our assessors are trained to the highest of standards to assess the recommendation report and amend recommendations where appropriate. This makes the report much more suitable to your specific needs. Our experience in commercial property and energy assessment methods allows us to offer the very best and most up to date information.
