With our Sustainability Director, Ted Pilbeam's accreditation under the Building Research Establishment's Scheme for Non Domestic Energy Assessors, VolkerFitzpatrick can now offer Clients an Energy Performance Certification service on all new building projects.
Energy Performance Certificates are required for all newly constructed buildings with few exceptions and are valid for a period of 10 years, or until a newer EPC is produced.
An EPC looks broadly similar to the energy labels now provided with vehicles and many household appliances. Its purpose is to indicate how energy efficient a building is. The certifi cate will provide an energy rating of the building from A to G, where A is very effi cient and G is the least effi cient. The better the rating, the more energy-effi cient the building is, and the lower the fuel bills are likely to be. The energy performance of the building is shown as a Carbon Dioxide (CO2) based index.
