What is a Commercial EPC?
If you are renting, selling or building a new commercial premises, you need a Non-domestic EPC. EPCs last for 10 years from submittal.
An NDEA (Non-Domestic Energy Assesor) will assess the energy outputs of your building and use the calculation model SBEM to produce your Regulation Compliance Report and EPC.
How Does it Work:
SBEM model - Model the building using SBEM software based on the design drawings provided by the team or a survey undertaken on an existing building.
SAP/SBEM calculations - to demonstrate that the DER is no greater than the calculated TER.
Regulations compliance consultancy - review existing building services design and provide sufficient statements to inform building control officers that the building fabric and building services are compliant.
Solar gains assessment - Calculations to that appropriate passive solar measures have been made to reduce summertime solar gains.
Remediation - in the event of a failure in any of these criteria, provide guidance to the design team on how to remediate and ensure compliance.
Draft EPC - the issue of a draft EPC if required for marketing purposes.
As built stage - upgrade the above work to an As Built SAP calculation upon completion of the build.
