Commercial EPC News

A recent survey carried out by Stroma Accreditation revealed that the take-up of non-domestic EPCs currently stands at approximately 15-25%. All LK clients are reminded of the following (which is taken from Page 15 of the guide to energy performance certificates for the construction, sale and let of non-dwellings)

“As soon as a building is in the process of being offered for sale, it is the responsibility of the seller to make available an EPC to prospective buyers”

“As soon as a building is in the process of being offered to let, it is the responsibility of the prospective landlord to make available an EPC to prospective tenants”

At LK Accreditation our team of accredited assessors are qualified to cover all levels of Commercial EPC survey, ranging through small storage facilities to large multi-use buildings.

LK Accreditation energy assessors work with our clients to ascertain:

  • The internal layout of a building;
  • The construction methods and materials;
  • The designated uses; and
  • The building services, lighting and control systems

These factors will enable our Assessors to understand the energy demands of each individual building space (zone) in accordance with its designated use. The information is then used to produce the Commerical EPC by the application of nationally approved standards. In parallel, recommendations will be produced by the Assessors to compile the Recommendations Report which accompanies the Commerical EPC
